In 1989, the Yunnan Theological Seminary was approved to be set up by the government. Its task is to train young preachers and pastors. The Construction area has 1,744 square meters. Up until this August, 645 students who have taken the three years theological course have already graduated. In addition, over 380 students have taken the short-term pastoral training which was held 9 times.
In the morning of May 15, 2015, more than 1,000 people attended the ceremony of the inauguration of the Seminary which held in the new campus.
Now, the seminary has 19 faculty and staff and 119 students. The students are made up of Yi, Lisu, Jingpo, Lahu, Wa, Miao, Hani, Dai, Zhuang, Tibetan, Nv, Han, and other nationalities.
