ABOUT US

Westminster Biblical Missions is helping to assist the work of our Nepali brothers and sisters with Pastor Dennis Roe serving as our field chairman. This work came about because of the providential meeting of Pastor Roe and Pastor Krishna “Caleb” Acharya in early spring of 2015 at the Western Classis meeting of the Reformed Church in the U.S. At this meeting Pastor Caleb, a native Nepali, learned of Pastor Roe’s love for missions and his work with WBM. Pastor Caleb invited him to come and see first-hand the Gospel needs of Nepal. Since that meeting, Pastors’ Roe and Caleb have made numerous trips to Nepal. The aim has been to meet and build up sound leadership for the Nepali churches that are springing up across the land. Through Pastor Caleb’s many contacts with Christian leaders, meetings are arranged in central and western Nepal for Christian leadership conferences. Pastor Roe leads the conferences setting forth a Biblical foundation on the knowledge of God. Missionary at Large Pastor Howard Sloan works with Pastor Roe in conducting training classes with the Nepali leaders via Zoom each week.
