One of the greatest needs right now in North India is Biblical Education. “The Harvest is Ripe, but the workers are few,” rings very true in this area of the world. Six years ago, MMF established a 5 month training School (DTS) to help equip and release young adults for a life of ministry. The first 3 months is spent in the classroom learning about Biblical discipleship, Christian ministry, evangelism & church planting, and Christian character. The last 2 months are spent doing ministry internships with local churches where the focus is evangelism and church growth. All the students pay some fees, but they are very minimal as they come from poor communities and family’s.
To date, we have run eight DTS’s which has trained over 120 students. Many of the graduates are now planting churches and doing community development through-out North India. Of the 55 church planters we currently support, over 75% of them were trained at a DTS. It’s a proven and effective leadership course!
