Reformed Presbyterian Fellowship Meets in Kolkata, India

The Reformed Presbyterian Fellowship (RPF), an association of churches and organizations in the Reformed/Presbyterian tradition, held its fifth study conference in Kolkata, India during 26-29 January. Over ninety delegates representing twenty different churches and organizations in India and Nepal took part in this conference.

RPF was formed nearly ten years ago to provide a forum for mutual encouragement, support and fellowship, and to share resources. In addition to India and Nepal, churches in Bangladesh and Myanmar also have participated in this fellowship. Providing training to numerous elders and lay leaders who minister regularly without the benefit of proper theological education has been identified as one of the common needs of this region. To that end, RPF has been organizing international, national as well as regional study conferences from time to time. One of the significant decisions at this Conference was to appoint a full time worker to plan and coordinate training seminars.

This organization is led by Teaching Elders (Pastors) from different denominations: Dr. Mohan Chacko (RPCI), President; Rev. Paul Billy Arnold, (PCI-R), Vice-President, Rev. L. Roshyama Hrangchal (RPCNEI), General Secretary, Rev. Arbin Pokharel (CRCN), Treasurer, Rev. Samit Misra (PFC), and Rev. G.S.R. Moses (CCRA), Members
