Dr. Narayan Nair
In the mid ’60s, after hearing God’s call to ministry, Narayan Nair, his wife Savita, and two young children traveled to Australia so he could attend AFCI’s Illawarra Bible College. Narayan, who converted from Hinduism to Christianity, had a longtime dream to establish a similar college in his homeland of Fiji. This dream was conceived from a heartfelt desire to train and equip others to spread the Gospel throughout the thousands of South-Pacific islands. His dream came true in 1974 when The Fiji College of Theology and Evangelism (FCTE) opened. This fully accredited seminary has grown steadily each year. Today, Narayan’s original dream has provided training for more than 10,000 men and women in the name of the Lord. The outflow of FCTE students and their commitment to spread the Gospel in their homelands continue to impact large portions of this region.
Thanking God for His constant care and protection upon their lives, Premend and his family have been in the U.S. for three years now. They moved from Fiji so that Premend can attend Seminary. Adjusting to the Californian lifestyle had been quite challenging and it seems that they are still adjusting. By God’s grace Premend has finished two years of graduate studies at The Masters Seminary. Apart from the rigorous academic training, the seminary puts careful attention into the cultivation of Christian character qualities and living skills. Premend believes this is preparing him for godly living, for leadership in ministry, and for effective involvement in serving others. The Choys are planning to return to Fiji after completing this training.
