Christya Jyoti Training School

Christya Jyoti Training School was started by Lil Bahadur Shris in 2007. Lil Shris studied at a Bible School in Singapore in 2003 and came back to his home in Western Nepal with a vision to start a Missionary Training School.

In January of 2007 Lil rented a house in the town of Surkhet and started teaching 8 students without any promise of long term support. Steve Regnault came to the school to help teach and eventually Lil and Steve partnered in the running of the school.

The school has run 1 training every year since 2007 and the students of the school have gone out and started many churches across Nepal. The Missionary Training School runs for six months. There are five months of in class training and there is one month of outreach into various parts of Nepal.

Because the church is growing so rapidly in Nepal and because a lot of the students that come are subsistent farmers a 6 month school seems to be the right amount of time for training. Many of the students have kept ties with the school and continue to receive training in form of conferences and through classes recorded on video.

Christya Jyoti Training School is slowly building contacts with other schools and is waiting for God’s guidance to expand its courses and training.
