We are located in Northern India at the base of the Himalayan mountains. Our Director and National Pastor is a man named Pratim. He is an Indian national who is biblically sound and is ordained as a Calvary Chapel Pastor under Calvary Chapel Saving Grace & Saving Grace World Missions. After spending 5 years evangelizing to unreached villages in remote mountain villages he began to see house churches spring up and many come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. But he then saw the great need to teach these young men the Bible, and give them training to equip them to continue this work amongst their own villages and people groups. This was the birth of the School of Ministry.
The School of Ministry is a one to two year program and has been operating full-time for over 3 years. The goal is to equip church planters to be sent out into unreached locations to evangelizing and pastor in village locations. We identify these young men through the various village ministries we have and once we find them and God confirms them we invite them to join the SOM with the vision of getting trained and returning to pastor the people in their villages and the surrounding areas.
The SOM is located on the same grounds as the Calvary Chapel in this area pastored by our national director Pratim. This provides a unique opportunity for each of our SOM students as they will experience real life practical training and discipleship in church planing ministry.
