Hanoi Bible College serves the Evangelical Church of Vietnam (North), which includes the Red River Delta region and the northern highland provinces. The majority of students are Hmong, but the ethnic Vietnamese and other minority groups are also represented. Due to significant growth of the church in recent decades, the church is in great need of well-trained leaders. To that end the church started Hanoi Bible College in 2013 to train young people for ministry. The school teaches at the BTh level and teaches in Vietnamese.
Following a period of language study and pending the approval of the Hanoi Bible College principal, lecturers contribute to the training and growth of BTh students through teaching, preaching in chapel, and pastoral care.
People with a theology degree should consider serving cross-culturally not just because of the great need. They should do so also because God shapes and molds us in new ways as we learn a new language and culture, as we see how God is at work around the world first-hand, and as we participate in what God is doing to build the church.
