Gujranwala Theological Seminary
About Our Partner
The Presbyterian Church of Pakistan (PCP)
Both women and men are preparing for service to the Presbyterian Church of Pakistan and with other denominations through their studies at Gujranwala Theological Seminary. About 25% of the school’s 88 students are women. Rev. Nosheen Khan, who now serves as president of the school, inherited a strategic institution that comes with a hefty challenge and a blessing. The challenge is a 20-acre campus whose buildings, technology, and grounds are badly in need of updates and repairs. The blessing is students who are passionate about the gospel and hungry to learn.
The seminary plays a vital role in preparing leaders for the church but struggles to fund its budget. Again this year Outreach assisted with some infrastructure projects that allowed the seminary to accommodate more students and with scholarships which most students need in order to study. The cost per student is $1,000 which includes housing, stipend, and tuition. Scholarship gifts are welcome.
Established in 1877 by Presbyterian missionaries from the United States, Gujranwala Theological Seminary prepares young men and women for ministry in the 300 largely rural congregations of the Presbyterian Church in Pakistan – a country that the World Watch List identifies as the fourth hardest country in which to live as a Christian.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $20,000 to support seminary operations as they train new leaders in a strategic mission field.
