A seminary in Mexico expands to accomodate growth.

Mexico (MNN)–There’s a vision to support the indigenous church in Mexico. Bill Evans, is with Men For Missions, the layman’s voice of OMS International.

UNIFAM Seminary is training students for ministry in its two programs. Presently, the seminary is under missionary leadership. With the fast growth of the seminary, it became necessary to provide learning space, which launched a new building project.

Evans says they’re making good progress on a new seminary building, which should be ready for a July dedication. “We have a number of seminary students, I think the number is around 18, and they’re, right now, meeting in the church, which is adjacent to the new seminary project. So they need room to grow and expand. This new building is going to give them that ability and then offer opportunities to even more students to be a part of this seminary.”

Evans says the seminary plays an integral role in Mexico, and not only for pastors. “Many there are taking classes that will help them to become pastors and leaders in their churches and the different churches around Mexico City and the surrounding area.”

It’s also providing a good balance. Evans adds that the training is useful to many, including: “People who are interested in a little bit of training to help their ministry or people who are interested then in becoming pastors.”

OMS plans on taking three more work teams to their seminary before the summer dedication. Evans is hoping to recruit a few more volunteers in the near future. If you’d like to get involved, click on the above highlighted link for OMS.
