Theological study outside of Nepal is not possible for many students because of financial problems and already being engaged in ministry. Therefore good theological institutions and education means in Nepal are imperative. While the church growth in Nepal has been amazing -- and consistent -- many of the pastors and leaders are without any theological or Bible training. Additionally, with the rise of cults, it is important for leaders to be well equipped in being able to defend, proclaim, and grow in what they believe and to train others to do the same.
Certainly there are some Bible colleges in Nepal and some are far better than others, however, sometimes, students cannot afford these studies either. There are real advantages in studying theology in one’s local context but, most importantly, studying in the local context makes possible the continuation of one’s ministry.
Therefore, Global Mission Nepal works to make solid Biblical and affordable theological education accessible to pastors and lay leaders in a manner that will allow them to receive ongoing theological education.
