What is the vision of the Bible College?
Calvary Chapel Bible College Nepal (also known as Salvation Bible College) is a two-year discipleship and Bible-training ministry. Our desire is to encourage Christians to grow deeper and go further in their relationships with Jesus. We aim at providing a Christ-centered and Bible-saturated environment that is conducive for both learning and serving. Our classes, taught by Calvary Chapel pastors and teachers, cover a wide range of subjects. Each course is designed to teach students to “rightly divide the word of truth”, and to equip them for “the work of the ministry”.
When are the classes scheduled?
Fall Semester is August - November Spring Semester is February - May
Are only Calvary Chapel pastors allowed to teach in the school?
No. However, we are looking for those who are clearly gifted by God in the teaching of the Word that can be highly recommended by other pastors. We are strictly modeling the theological beliefs held by CCA, and will only allow teachers who adhere to these doctrinal positions to teach in our schools.
Do I have to speak Nepali to be able to minister effectively?
No. Most of the younger people in Nepal speak English, but we also have translators in all of our classes.
What subjects/books are available to teach at the Bible College?
CCBC Nepal is an affiliate campus of CCBC Murrieta, and therefore follows their curriculum structure. The list of subjects available to teach can be found HERE.
Please submit several classes that you are interested in teaching and we will review our semester schedule and confirm what is most needed.
*Note: Before choosing a class to teach, please be sure to check the semester schedule to see if another teacher has chosen to cover the subject.
How many students attend the Bible College?
Depending on the semester, we have may 15 - 25 students in class. We anticipate attendance to continue to grow as our program develops.
What is the cost of a trip?
The cost for a pastor who is teaching a class at CCBC Neapl to stay on the school campus is $225 per person, per week. For more details of what this cost covers and what it does not, please visit the Financial Informationpage.
What are the accommodations like?
Our facility offers dorm-style housing for students and visiting missionaries. Teachers/pastors (and their wives, if desired) have the option to stay in a private bedroom with an attached bathroom. Linens, towels, and food on campus are provided for. For those wishing to come with a family or team, please contact us and we can make the necessary arrangements for your accommodation. The pricing module will vary depending on the size of the team.
What is the food like?
The food on campus is made by full-time ministry workers. Several breakfast options, including eggs & potatoes, oatmeal, cereal and fruit, will be available each morning.
Simple meals of rice and dhal (lentil soup), potatoes, and vegetables are served for lunch daily to the students. Visitors can choose to eat with the students or have a simple sandwich/chips set for lunch.
There are many local Western-style restaurants within walking distance for those wanting to dine out. It is completely safe for foreigners to travel alone by foot around the city, but because of the confusing streets, a ministry worker can accompany you around the city.
Visiting pastors/teachers also have the option of eating dinner with the full-time missionaries on campus.
What are some ways we can be involved in this work if we cannot travel to Nepal?
Pray, pray, pray!
