Finally, the Mission Network participates in the North America-based Friends of Union Biblical Seminary, a network of agencies and individuals that receive contributions and helps promote the seminary among old and new friends of the school.Several western missions joined together in 1953 to create a new interdenominational seminary for northern India. Initially located in Yeotmal, Maharashtra, the institution moved in 1983 to its current home in Pune, a vibrant city near Mumbai. UBS maintains a reputation as India’s premier evangelical seminary thanks to an abiding focus on mission studies, and expectations that all students and faculty will be involved in active mission outreach.
