Ukhrul lies in Manipur Pradesh in northeast India near the Myanmar border. It is a strategic location to train pastors and leaders both from India and Myanmar.
Reaching & Teaching is excited about the opportunity to begin this training project—among the first for us on the continent of Asia. The training at Ukhrul has the potential of impacting more than 50 pastors and leaders who have had little opportunity to receive theological training. The Tangkhul Naga Baptist pastors who will be attending are from the region of Manipur and Nagaland in India as well as from Myanmar. The training will be translated into the Tangkhul language. Training in Myanmar is difficult to accomplish, but this site provides a tremendous opportunity for Reaching & Teaching and partnering churches to train pastors and leaders from both India and Myanmar.
Travel & Accomodations
Teams will fly from the U. S. through Delhi or Kolkata airports to Imphal airport. They will then travel about three hours in a missionary vehicle to arrive in Ukhrul. Teams will be housed at the Tangkhul Baptist Training Center during the training week.
Reaching & Teaching is seeking a likeminded partnering church that will send qualified teachers to this location 1 to 3 times per year for the duration of the 3-year training program. Learn more about church partnerships by following the link below.About Church Partnerships
