Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20

Spiritual Retreat is a following program of Spiritual emphasis week. For this program all of the students, staff and faculty go together in a near place where we can spend time with God. Usually this program is observed for 2 days long. There we organize different kind of activities such as quiet time, worship, sharing visit etc. which are helpful for spiritual growth.

Spiritual Emphasis week and Spiritual Retreat helps college to meet one of the college emphases "to be like Christ."




Mission Emphasis Week

Mission Emphasis Week is also celebrated once in a year to learn specifically on mission. On this week we call guest speakers who have gathered lots of experience on mission to speak on mission topic. On this week we also watch mission related movies, learn mission songs, spend quiet time and organize other mission activities. This week is also a preparation week for Mission Trip.


Mission Trips

After a year-long of lecture on various aspects of subjects students also need to implement of their learning thus we felt the need of an exposure trip. As per the two-emphasis of the college: "to be like Christ, and to make Christ known", we need to organize this trip that provides an opportunity to reach out non-Christian and share the love of Christ, and strengthens the local churches. This also helps students to enhance their leadership and ministry skills.




Ministry

In addition to the academic and spiritual formation emphasis, the college recognizes the importance of practical experiences and skill in the ministry. Thus, NBBC integrates the Student Body Service, Weekends Field Work and Internship programs as the vital part of equipping process for ministry.

Weekend Ministry

The Weekends Field Work Program seeks to expose the students to the varied scopes of Church ministries. They are assigned to different local churches to serve.

Saturday Service

Weekend ministry is one of the requirements of college for Field Ministry course.

On Saturday Students are assigned to various churches for weekend field ministry and expected to participate regularly.

There Students are expected to respect and submit to the local church leadership. And serve the local church in worship, preaching, evangelism and other areas of ministry as required by the assigned church.

At the end of the semester students are to submit their semester journal filled with ministry record and with attendance signed by the pastor or Church leader.

Sunday Service

On Sunday all the students are to attend Sunday English Worship Service at Living Baptist Church, Nakhipot, Lalitpur. In English service students are given chance to chair the service, lead worship and preach as well.


Internship Program

The internship program is design to provide student to major on their potential area(s) of ministry, while developing one or more other minor roles. Internship is recommended after the completion of the second-semester of the Third-year.

Rationale being that after two and half years of studies and general exposure in various ministries, he/she may narrow down his/her potential gifts/roles for the internship. Thereafter, student has one more final semester for the final "touch-up" of their needs both academically and practically.

Students are sent to their respective churches for their Internship Field. However, considering the interest and gifting of the Students College can also send students in the needed field.


The Primary Objectives

The Primary objectives for the Weekends and the Internship programs are: to expose the students to as wide and varied the scope of church/Christian ministries, to provide for the students opportunities to work with, under a mentor, to learn and develop the practical skills in ministry and to help the student discover and affirm his potentials, gifts and strengths as well as measures to rectify his/her needs.
