The Union Biblical Seminary Alumni Association is an association of all the graduates, graduating students, present academic and administrative staff of the Union Biblical Seminary, Pune. It was founded with a humble aspiration of fostering mutual fellowship and cooperation among members and extending support to the seminary.

The history of the UBSAA could be traced back to the ever first graduates of the seminary. The very first ever graduates of the seminary was the class of 1956, at G.Th. level. This was followed by the first graduates at the B.D. level in 1958. Ten years later, there were graduates from five different courses: Bachelor of Divinity (B.D.), Bachelor of Religious Education (B.R.E.), Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.), Graduate in Theology (G.Th.) and four year diploma for non-matriculates.

These include pastoral ministry, teaching, missionary, administration and the likes. Among those who are in pastoral ministry in particular, some are holding key positions as bishops, presidents and chairpersons of synods and conferences.

Principal’s Greetings

Warm greetings from Union Biblical Seminary, Pune! UBS emphasizes on Biblio-centric teaching that is evangelical in theology. We believe that our world today needs scholar saints and servant leaders who would transform the world by presenting the gospel that is socially and culturally relevant.

Our graduates have been serving the Church universally and in India in various capacities both in rural and urban settings. They have contributed greatly in the ministry and mission of the Church especially in the area of evangelism and mission. We emphasize on a holistic mission of the Church that liberates people and enables them to transform the society and thus contribute towards nation building.

At UBS students are challenged and motivated for doing mission in a broken world. They go out of UBS as pastors, missionaries, evangelists, counsellors, social workers and teachers who integrate society, the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of our graduates have pioneered new missions and organisations which work among the unreached poor, oppressed and the people who live in the most hostile circumstances.

The UBS family reflects the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of India. Our students come from 28 different states of India with the goal of learning the word of God and making it intelligible for our contemporary world. We provide a conducive environment for academic excellence and spiritual growth in UBS. Come and join us in our ongoing pursuit of excellence in the mission and ministry of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We invite you to join our residential programmes BD, MTh and DTh (Senate of Serampore). Our BD programme is unique because we provide mentored growth and ministerial opportunity along with academic pursuit and excellence. Our mentored ministry department sends 52 teams consisting of our students and faculty to different churches and Christian institutions in the city. The members of these teams minister in these churches and institutions during weekends by leading in worship, bible studies, cell group gatherings, Sunday school and youth meetings.

We also offer MDiv by distance learning (ATA) in Hindi, Marathi and English. Many key Christian leaders have been benefitted by this programme which offers quality theological education.  At UBS we train, equip and nurture men and women who are called by God to do the mission of God by adopting a Christ like lifestyle. May the Lord continue to Bless you and make you a great Blessing.
