Welcome to the Bethel Women Development Center



The Bethel Faith Spark Bible College was first established in 1978 as the first ever exclusive Bible College for women with 35 students. This was the brain child of Late Mother Ruth Gnanaprakasam, the founder of this Bible College and was first started in a rented building at NGGO Colony. She had a heart of sulphur for the young women to be trained to be salt and light to their generation. More than 1000 women have graduated since then and a few of them have returned back as Alumini to serve God by raising such young dynamic women.

Later in 1981, a building was constructed at TVS Nagar, which has now become the Women’s Center Campus with a lot of activities buzzing around just for the women.
