And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 2 Timothy 2:2
There is a huge need in India and Nepal for the teaching of sound, Biblical doctrine, so that Christians may be built up in their faith and equipped to stand firm in Christ. Pastors and other Christian leaders need training so that they may be better equipped to preach and teach the Gospel faithfully, and not be deceived by false doctrine.
Over the years, India Link Ministries has contributed to the training of pastors by leading seminars, particularly in Chennai, Bangalore and Jhansi. We have also distributed good Christian books and co-operated with translation projects.
More recently, we have set up a Training & Development Fund to enable us to provide resources for Biblical training. This includes the Speaking to students at a Bible college in Manipur, North-East India cost of running training seminars, providing literature and supporting the work of like-minded Pastors and organisations. We hope eventually that this will lead to the setting up of a training and resource centre in India.
We have met with representatives of Pastors Training International to explore the possibility of organising conferences in India for PTI to provide formal training. It is expected that the first of these conferences is likely to take place in November 2013.
What can I do?
We can all certainly pray. We can also support organisations such as Pastors Training International and Christian Books Worldwide, which focus on the training of pastors in India and many other countries around the world.
How can I support?
If you would like to regularly support the training of pastors in India and Nepal, you can set up a monthly Standing Order.
