GRACE BIBLE COLLEGE UPDATE

GBC students minister weekly in local churches,

From Principal Pramod Tantarpale: The 2023-24 school year has been a challenging one with the loss of our beloved Dr. Cook, but God is good and we continue in our relationship with Indigenous Ministries with Miss Dee. We have seen our students grow and develop, and a number focused on full time ministry after competing their studies. Praise God.

Our students have taken their final exams and are preparing to go to their respective places for the practical ministry, one of the requirements for their studies at GBC.

This time of practical ministry for the students will be difficult because of the parliament’s election is scheduled in the month of April and May. So, the code of conduct has been enforced and therefore students won’t be able to do practical work outside the churches or in a group. But they can still be active in their local churches and ministry organizations.

In the month of June they will be free to enhance their ministry under the supervision of the Ministry Coordinator. The faculty also will join them. The students are expected to come back to the school in the first week of July. Thank you for your ongoing prayers and financial support for GBC; may the Lord bless you.

Students prepare for their exams
