Yunnan Theological Seminary held a thanksgiving worship on Aug 27 for the new semester with 60 new students enrolled this year.
During the morning worship, Yong Rong, a teacher of the school, preached on "Choose What You Serve" to encourage the brothers and sisters of the school to equip themselves with knowledge and strengthen their choice from the history of salvation, God's Word, and experiencing God. Brother He Zhuo gave a sermon on "Follow the Way of the Lord" in the afternoon service which underlined that Jesus is the way and the life, so the students should follow Jesus to walk the path of light, live out love to testify and glorify the Lord's name, according to the WeChat Subscription (Chinese social media ) of the school.
While giving the orientation for the new semester, President Luo Deshun reminded the students to fear God, be humble to learn, be responsible, be safe, and respect discipline.
Yunnan Theological Seminary was approved by the People's Government of Yunnan Province in 1989. Its mission is to foster young preachers for churches in Yunnan and train pastoral workers. The school then built a new campus due to the urban construction of Kunming, the capital city. On May 15, 2015, it completed and held the inauguration ceremony.
Yunnan Theological Seminary has the most diverse student body nationwide, including Yi, Lisu, Jingpo, Lagu, Wa, Miao, Hani, Dai, Zhuang, Tibetan, Nu, and Han Peoples.
