Alliance Theological Seminary Dean in Vietnam
It was a historic moment for the Tin Lanh (“Good News”) Church when Dr. Ron Walborn visited Vietnam this past fall. There are 1.5 million Christian and Missionary Alliance believers and this thriving body of Christians is led by only 400 pastors.
Dr. Walborn was at the Vietnam Institute of Bible and Theology as a visiting professor to teach an inaugural graduate level class, "Foundations in Ministry." He was the first professor for the students enrolled in a 36-credit rotation (12 three-credit courses). The level of respect for their theological training was evident on a day when class ended, but the students remained at their desks. Dr. Walborn learned from a spokesman for the class that they would not leave the class until he prayed for them.
