In the fall of 2021, Word of Life will start two Bible schools in Kolkata, India. The COVID-19 situation in India is still a challenge and in order to reach further into the country, Word of Life plans to start 10 campuses with online Bible schools around India. The arrangement is such that the teaching is recorded at the Bible schools in Kolkata where both teachers from Sweden and India teach. This teaching is then streamed to 10 other locations in the country where local Word of Life churches arrange campus Bible schools.
During the pandemic, we have tested this in several places in India and seen good results. Through online Bible school, we can reach out with campuses in cities and places that would not otherwise be accessible. In this way, the teaching of the faith reaches out to villages that would have limited opportunities to hear good, equipping teaching.
