Student life at RTI is anything but typical.  Our students range in age from 18 to 60 years old; some were born in Oregon, while others were born outside the U.S. Many RTI students see themselves serving in church positions after graduation, while some sense a call to the nations.  All of our students are passionate about sharing the gospel in a clear and relevant way, believing that the Bible is the authoritative word of God, and contains the revealed will of God for all people everywhere.  


Nestled within the Willamette Valley,  just an hour from Portland, the mountains and the ocean, RTI is situated in an ideal location for students wishing to prepare for ministry in any setting.

We are located on the Salem Alliance Campus which includes the Broadway Commons, Broadway Coffeehouse (a great place to study), Salem Free Clinics and the Northwest Hub. Just north of the downtown, students have bikeable and walkable access to a number of theaters, restaurants and shopping and walking and biking paths accessible from the Riverfront Park
