YTI founder Klein Gilhousen

“Our hope is that Yellowstone Theological Institute would nurture a generation of Christians creatively expressing their faith through the arts, ministering in local coffee shops, or living out gospel principles through social ministries and care for the natural world. That is truly a dream worth investing in and one we are proud to be a part of.”

— Dr. Klein Gilhousen (1942-2016), YTI Co-Founder
