Global Theological Institute - 3rd Graduation Ceremony

This past week we had the privilege of participating in the 3rd graduation ceremony of Global Theological Institute, which is a ministry of the Thailand Methodist Mission led by Drs. Tanapong and Muanreedee.  17 students graduated with B.Min and M.Min degrees.  Now a total of 76 graduates from the Global Theological Institute, serving all across Thailand.

The graduates bow as everyone lifts them up with prayers of blessing.

Three of this year's graduates are Pioneer Pastors, having planted the first church ever in counties in Thailand that have never had a Christian church before.

Global Theological Institute graduates Pastor Arpan and Pastor Weelahwan pioneered the Blessings of God Church in Chachoengsao province.  Pastor Arpan received her M.Min degree and Pastor Weelahwan earned her B.Min. degree.  Blessings of God Church is the only Christian church in Samet Tai, a rural county with a population of over 5,000 people.
