Coke has outdone us at reaching the remotest areas of Nepal. They are on every mountain, in every village no matter how remote. We can’t say, ‘This is our best’, we must reach deeper.
— Mark Avery | Executive Director
 
 
 

95% of pastors in Nepal have no formal training yet they are doing 95% of the work. Please watch this short video to understand the great need to train pastors who cannot leave their village to attend a formal seminary setting.

 

Our unique programs.

Touch Nepal offers a 2 and a 1/2 year training program where graduates can receive a Certificate of Theology in biblical Fellowship. We provide onsite focused training on Expository Preaching, Evangelism, Discipleship and Leadership Development. It’s a unique curriculum written by Nepali's, for Nepali's in Nepali. Our curriculum is not translated work from India but unique to these emerging pastors and leaders who live in the remote areas of Nepal.  

 Unique approach.

The face of training new leaders and pastors in Nepal is rapidly changing. Seminaries are great places of learning but they are not fulfilling the practical needs of pastors who are already working in countless villages across Nepal. These pastors cannot simply leave their families jobs and churches for years to get training. Most pastors in Nepal are not wholly supported by the people in their church so they must also work. We need to go to them and change the face of training in Nepal. Our training is so important to the future of pastors in Nepal, that the Asia Theological Association is looking into accrediting our remote teaching programs.

Unique people.

Our team of master level trained pastors is like no other!

When you support our Remote Area Training Team you are supporting one of our most important works! Your support delivers our teams into remote areas to train, and return to train, emerging pastors and leaders. Though there is value in conferences, one and two day conferences cannot wholly fulfill the great need of consistent and purposeful training for emerging pastors and leaders in remote areas.

Training is not an event, it’s a process
— Satya Suwal

We've already provided and partnered with others to reach and train in some of the most remote areas in Nepal. The impact of this work has helped to strengthen local pastors and leaders who can then reach even further into Nepal. In a recent trip to an extremely remote area in far west Nepal, our team travelled on foot for a combined one way trip of six hours. On one of the days they wandered further into another village accessible by foot. 


We walked into their village. They clearly weren’t used to seeing anyone they didn’t know, even seeing other Nepalis walk through their village. They asked us why we were there. We told them that we were telling people about Jesus and asked them if they knew about Jesus, they said, ‘No, who is he?’

"Please come to Ramechap". A short success story and lesson of the desperate desire for training in Nepal. 

"We'd planned to go to Ramechap for a large pastor's training conference. It had been planned for months. However the heavy monsoons came before and made the road travel conditions horrible with mudslides and debris covering and blocking roads in many areas. Because of that we had to divert the conferences to Dhading. The biggest surprise came late one morning in Dhading when the pastor from Ramechap made it all the way to us! Despite the weather, and the terrible conditions, he made it all the way to us to plead this one thing, "Please come to Ramechap". It was our great pleasure to return to Ramechap a few months later. 

 
Ps Steve with the Ramechap pastor in Ramechap with his family!

Support the work of emerging pastors, being trained in their home villages, to correctly guide, teach and train others locally, who will reach even further into the mountains of Nepal.

The time is now and the need is now. 

 

   Reach every village. Touch every heart. ™
