India – As Grace Bible College’s graduation came to an end, Principal Pramod Tantarpale stood up and in closing comments announced that Grace Bible College is now accredited by Asia Theological Association. He gave God the glory for this remarkable achievement, also thanked the faculty and staff for their hard efforts to reach this stage.

He especially wanted John and Dee Cook to take home with them most sincere appreciation from himself personally, the GBC board, faculty and staff to the IMI sponsors, donors and prayer partners in the U.S. who so faithfully uphold this college day by day. This milestone opens up many doors for GBC’s future as together, Indigenous Ministries and GBC continue to prepare men and women for ministry and life through a solid, biblical education. Future plans include developing the school into a Master’s level educational institution and campus expansion.
