President Brenneman in India

From April 1-10, President Brenneman was privileged to preach twice and represent BST and the American Baptist Churches USA at the 125th Anniversary Celebration of the Tangkhul Baptist Churches Association, a gathering of over 20,000 people in Manipur, India. The northeast region of India is home to 1.5M Baptists and some 8500 churches, a source of many BST students, graduates and affiliate faculty over the years. President Brenneman was part of the unveiling of a new monument in honor of Rev. William Pettigrew, the earliest American Baptist missionary to visit Manipur and establish the first public school among the Tangkhul tribal groups, planting churches, and penning the first translation of several biblical books and hymns in the Tangkhul language.
