India_(orthographic_projection).svgCountry Overview:2
India has the second largest population in the world, second only to China. While India’s religious landscape is heavily dominated by Hinduism, western India has considerable Muslim influence. The Indian evangelical church is known for their focus on prayer, evangelism, and church planting which has led to a growth of the evangelical population at 2.5x the rate of the general population. In spite of such positive statistics, many evangelical churches lack biblical preaching and the true gospel. Nominalism and cults have influence as well. As in all places, training preachers to read God’s Word and preach it faithfully with power is desperately needed to strengthen the Indian church and make disciples.

Training Opportunity:
Our work in India is spread across three different locations in different stages of development.

  • In Northeast India, we will continue to invest in key men we have trained (Mentor Trainers) who are now expanding our training in and around one of India’s fastest growing metropolitan areas. Three of these men have been appointed by denominational leaders to head up ongoing training using TNT for pastors, church planters, and missionaries in their denominations (Churches of Northern India, First Evangelical Church Association of India, and Asian Outreach Ministry). Training has already expanded outside of India into a creative-access country.
  • In Northwest India, we will start a training group in October 2016, drawing from five potential states. Pray for this group to have God’s Word grip their hearts and fuel a desire for Word-driven preaching, training, and discipleship.
  • In North Central India, we have begun discussions with leaders about training. Pray for fruitful discussions, a desire for training, and a logistical ability to see it happen.
