Our History

Himalayan Torchbearers started for the purpose of teaching youth who wanted to gain knowledge about Christ. While it started with a short term program, God expanded the ministry to not only have short summer programs, but to have a 6 month Bible school and a 2-year equipping for leadership course. While the ministry started in a rented building, God remarkably provided a beautiful property located among the foothills of the Himalayas, where Himalayan Torchbearers has been situated since 1995.

Along with Bible schools, God has used Dr. Satish John and his late wife Mrs. Rajni John to start programs that have helped alcohol and drug addicts to be free from their addictions, aided in disaster relief, opened schools around North India for underprivileged children, partnered with NGO's for school courses, and most recently, allowing a way for International guests to learn about India, its culture and religions.

Programs

Himalayan Torchbearers offers a six months Bible school in English for Indian and international students, as well as the Discover the Wor(l)d program which is only for international students interested in learning about and making a difference in a new culture.
