Extension Centres


Samanvaya Theology College, Patel Nagar, Bhopal 462021, M.P.

Samanvayais an extension centre of Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram, offering courses leading to the BTh degree. Samanvaya (literally meaning ‘Integration’) envisions atheological training programme focusing on the Church’s evangelizing mission in the northern parts of India.  The signs of the times challenge us to delineate a new vision and approach in the formation of today’s missionaries.  The theological training imparted should correspond to the complex reality of Indian life in all dimensions – social, economic, political, religious,cultural, etc. In the theologizing task greater identification with the people and participation in their movements for total liberation are required, so thatthe challenge of the divine call may be answered fully and integrally. Thetheological formation envisaged by Samanvaya is a process “from below” rather than “from above.” The courses and the lived experiences are arranged in thetribal-rural context of Jagadalpur and the religio-cultural context of Rishikesh, Bangalore, and Bhopal.
