Zarephath Bible Seminary
The institute shifted to Rawalpindi in 1998. As a result of this
relocation, ZBI was able to offer leadership education classes to both
morning and evening students. Rawalpindi also offered a great variety
of opportunities for the students to engage in fieldwork. The new
urban location made it easier for faculty to commute to the Institute.
A new curriculum was implemented in 2000. This curriculum is revised after 3 years. By 2022 over 471 graduates were serving the Lord Jesus Christ in a wide
variety of ministries.
ZBS is registered under the regulations of the government of
Pakistan. The Institute is run by a board consisting of members from
partner evangelical churches and organizations within Pakistan.
At present ZBS operates at a rented facility at 127 Murree Road, Rawalpindi and residential campus owned by ZBS is located near Fatajang Interchange.
