Since democratic openness started just after the 1990 revolution the majority of christian believers in Nepal are practically first generations believers with not much Bible teaching except of whatever the young Churches of Nepal have taught during the limited possible time in the Church services. There is a desperate need for trained people to disciple the huge number of new citizens of heaven who have found Christ as their savior and Lord. Up to now the existing Bible college has been able to hold on te3aching a very limited number of young energetic people even not constantly due to financial, location problems as well as lack of equipment, instruments, teaching materials, and qualified teachers.
Even though we are happy that we have been able to teach about 200 young leaders the majority of whom are already serving as pastors and leaders but we are not satisfied with what we have done due to shortcomings in different aspects of the work. We have planned to run a real spirit filled Bible college to feed the hungry new comers to our Lord Jesus Christ and to train them to become real shepherds of the God’s Pasture. We intend to link the college with one of the spirit filled international.
Bible colleges in west, which will avail our Nepalese future leaders with excellent course materials as well as the opportunity to earn a diploma for degree from the same college. We intend to build a building for the Bible College, which will facilitate 110 students per year, we even vision the fact that after this one is established we shall approach for establishing another two Bible College in other areas than Kathmandu.
Eventually it will also be possible for foreign students to come and learn cross-cultural ministry while living in a third world country.
