Ningbo Christian Training Center held opening ceremony for new school year on Sept 11, 2017.

Ningbo Christian Training Center held the orientation for its eighth theological class and third Bible class on September 11, 2017.

Twenty students have enrolled in the center for the new school year, 11 for theological courses and 9 for Bible courses.

Rev. Gao Jianwei, president of the Ningbo CCC, encouraged the new students to study hard and serve faithfully, according to the official website of the Zhejiang Bureau of Ethnic and Religious Affairs.

The center's official website states that it was founded in 1996 and conducted three two-year theological programs. Later it suspended enrollment for some reasons and started short-term training for volunteers. In 2009, it resumed the theological programs. It was formerly located in Ningbo Holy Church and then moved temporarily into Hanling Church.
