The new Pastor Training Center located in Kathmandu, Nepal, was officially inaugurated in October of 2018. The first twenty-two students began their semester later that October. After finishing the semester in April, the students were then able to assist a full-time PUMA pastor for three months in either Lamjung, Gorkha, or Manang. The students will soon be returning to the training center in Kathmandu to finish their last 6 months of training. It is exciting to see so many young men desiring to enter ministry and work among their own people. In August of 2019, another group of young men will begin the same journey, and will be prepared to enter ministry by December 2020.
