On October 8, 2017, Yunnan Theological Seminary held the opening ceremony of its second pastoral correspondence program.
A total of 64 people enrolled in the two-year program. The program was launched for preachers who already work in the church but don't have professional theological training. The students will study theology and other courses as well as the latest religious regulations and policies.
The seminary's official WeChat account said that Rev. Luo Deshun, the president, exhorted the attendants to be "a new creation" and study hard as theological students.
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 its inauguration ceremony.
The seminary has the most diverse student body nationwide, including Yi, Lisu, Jingpo, Lagu, Wa, Miao, Hani, Dai, Zhuang, Tibetan, Nu, and Han people.
