THEOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND COMMUNICATION INSTITUTE
Where did it all begin?
TRACI was established in 1972, with the primary objective of research and in turn diffuse Christian knowledge and literature for the benefit and welfare of the society. The world is full of events, news, happenings, and issues. We view the world through multiple lenses like the media, politics, history, technology and personal experiences. We at TRACI add a theological perspective to the world. We believe that ongoing theological reflection on relevant issues is essential to meaningfully respond to them. It is made effective through communication and transformative engagement.
Why are we different?
At TRACI, we are from different fields with special interests, and we make a conscious effort to come together to review, reaffirm and redefine the praxis of essentials. Theological Research And Communication Institute (TRACI) provides us a platform to constantly update and integrate our theological reflections and motivates us to make a difference in our respective disciplines.
“Facilitating integrated response and transformative engagements through theological reflections on contemporary and relevant issues, by communities of followers of Jesus Christ”.
