Graham Houghton, founding principal of the South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies (SAIACS), in Bangalore, India, was born September 27th 1937 and raised in New Zealand, on a dairy farm in the Awahuri near Feilding.Houghton left high school during his fifth form year with an intention to expand the family farm. However, after a personal religious experience he left the farm, trained for two years (1960–61) at the Bible College of New Zealand, and became the first NZ missionary sent out by the then Oriental Missionary Society (now One Mission Society), a multinational Christian faith mission, a multinational Christian evangelism organization. He arrived in India to do village evangelism in 1965 and has worked in that country until 2005.Houghton completed undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, eventually earning his Ph.D. in South Asian History from the University of California, Los Angeles with a dissertation titled "The Impoverishment of Dependency." His wife Carol moved (née, McDearmid) from Virginia in the United States at an early age with her parents, who were Assemblies of God missionaries. She has lived in India almost continuously since, with the exception of her university education. Her marriage to Houghton in 1968 was arranged according to Indian custom by her father.Houghton taught for many years as well as serving as the Principal of Madras Bible Seminary before founding SAIACS in 1981. The SAIACS campus now occupies almost five hectares (twelve acres) of land on the North edge of Bangalore, a fast growing city of over 8 million, just over 300km west of Chennai (Madras) in South India. SAIACS has now expanded to a total of about 130 full-time students, all studying at the masters or doctoral level. Students come from many parts of India, and other nations such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Sri Lanka, Thailand, and also Australia and New Zealand. Several have come from Africa and Central America. In the past year a number of Indian Students from the United States have also chosen to come to SAIACS in preparation for working in the sub-continent.In 1997 SAIACS was recognized by the University of Mysore as an accredited research institution to the university, enabling SAIACS to offer an accredited Indian Ph.D. programme. This is the first Protestant institution to be so recognized since William Carey's Serampore College in 1818. SAIACS graduates are working as organizational and denominational leaders, faculty at a number of bible colleges, seminaries, and graduate schools, and pastors and missionaries with many indigenous missionary agencies throughout South Asia.In 2001 Dr. Houghton was invited as a part of a group to establish a department of Christianity at Peking University, Beijing, People's Republic of China. Teaching at the masters and Ph.D. level has been going on since then. The courses have reached both Christians from the Three Self Patriotic Church and other Christian groups as well
