History

DOON BIBLE COLLEGE began,as a short term course for evangelists in Agra in 1943.The founder,the late Pastor Harry Liddle, sensed the need for an instituition which would cater for the training of young men who had a real call to be Christian ministers but,due to poor educational back grounds, were barred from entering the Bible Colleges.

In 1945, the established Bible School moved to Dehra Dun.Later as the instituition developed, it was decided to extend its courses and change its name to Doon Bible College.

From the beginning DBC has worked in close fellowship with the local Church Masihi Mandli of Dehra Dun as well as other Pentecostal Churches in India.The students have come from all over India.The students have come from all over India and Abroad.Many of them are now known as successful evangelists and pastors in different parts of our land.Others are serving as Church leaders and teachers.A recent survey indicated that about 83% of the graduates are in full time ministry.

Location

Doon Bible College is situated in the city of Dehradun,250 kms north of Delhi,at the foot hills of the himalayas.It is the capital of newly build state of Uttarakhand with very good communications,easily reached by rail,road and air.

The campus is well developed,with adequate facilities.The hostel provides accommodation for 60 men,and limited places for women.As recently as 1997 we welcomed women into our training programme,with an intention to increase numbers in the near future.

Although in the heart of the city,DBC is isolated from the bustling and noisy urban life.It is surrounded by the ancient Shiwalik range and other border mountains of the Himalayas with the mussoorie hill station in full view.Dehra Dun has attracted a large number of educational instituitions which are well known throughout India.Some of them are:The Indian Military Academy,Forest Research Institute,Survey of India,ONGC,Indian Institute of Petroleum,the Doon School,and many other government institutes.

Due to its strategic location,the Doon Valley experiences moderate summer and sever winter.The average annual rainfall is about three times higher than in the plains.
