Church-Based Seminary

A place to learn and grow together

Satya Vachan Church has a church-based Seminary training men to become ministers of the Word of God. The leadership wants to develop church planters who would go and plant healthy churches wherever the Lord would lead them.

Why Church-Based Seminary?

We believe that the Church prepares, trains, equips and produces pastors. The local church is the best context to prepare young men for pastoral ministry and church planting. The seminary students learn and apply what they have studied in the context of the local church. During their training, they are discipled by the church leaders, and along with attending classes, are also involved in practical ministry in the life of the church. The number of students in each batch is small (around 12 students) so that they can be invested in and discipled better.

Overview

We offer an M. Div. level seminary training. The language of instruction is English and is translated to Hindi. The topics dealt through the course of the seminary are Theology, Pastoral Ministry, Biblical Languages, Systematic Theology, Preaching, Hermeneutics, Counselling etc. We stress the importance of practical ministry and the seminary students are part of the life of the local church. They would do house visits, attend Sunday service review meetings, disciple young men, read the Bible one to one with others in the church.

Eligibility

The seminary accepts born-again baptised men who have been sent by their local church. They should have completed their undergraduate studies. They should know Hindi well and should be able to understand English. They should have a desire for church-planting and pastoral ministry. 

Present

Our first batch, which began in 2017 had 12 students. We have a new batch of 11 students who began their journey of biblical and theological training from July 2020.

Our first seminary batch completed their theological studies in 2020. Students will be going for internships to various churches. The leaders hope that as they begin to serve the church and exercise their God-given gifts, they would be recognized by the church as having the Biblical qualities required for elders (1 Tim. 2:1-7, Tit. 1:5-9), and would plant and Pastor Biblically healthy churches.
