Saggu Abraham - Nepal

Dr Saggu Abraham is the director for a consortium which is providing an ATA-recognised MDiv in Nepal for the first time. He will also be capacity building a local Nepali leader to take over the role after his commitment of three to four years is done.

Saggu is the founding dean of the Nepal Theological Academy in Kathmandu, Nepal, a country enjoying fast church growth but lacking in higher theological education.

More about Saggu Abraham

He served the Lord at SAIACS as Registrar, Academic Dean and Director of DMin studies between May 2007 and December 2014.

He holds a PhD in Old Testament from the University of Mysore, BTh from Hindustan Bible Institute and College, Chennai, BD from Union Biblical Seminary, Pune, and MTh from United Theological College, Bangalore. He also has an MA (Philosophy) from Osmania University, Hyderabad.

He was secretary of mission agency Parivarthana Trust in India for 10 years, during which time he visited various mission fields and organised seminars and training sessions for missionaries.

He has been involved in theological education for the last 30 years, including initiating and implementing new academic programmes in two leading seminaries in India. He was also involved in the evaluation of theological colleges when he served on the ATA India executive committee.

His vision is that one day the fast-growing church in Nepal will have adequate and well-trained pastors to take care of the existing churches. He desires to see more native missionaries reach out to the unreached Nepalese with the gospel and that one day there will be Christ-like first- and second-level leaders groomed for leadership roles in the denominations, mission agencies and theological institutions in Nepal.
