Church Partner Connect your church to a church overseas

 

Why help?

Your church can have a global impact. Partner with Christian brothers and sisters around the world, stand beside them and pull for them in prayer and in action. Email with leaders and pray with them. Encourage them in their relationship with God. Do church or group fundraisers for special needs faced by these churches and help, because you can. Because it feels good to know you are making a difference in someone’s life for the better. Because God commands us to look out for the less fortunate and will bless you for doing  it. Because you would want someone to help you if you were in a situation of need. Because it’s the right thing to do.

There are 3 main ways you can help:

1) PRAYER. This is a life-changing effort that can be heavily persecuted. Pray for the leaders of the Hope for India Project, as Christians are a persecuted minority in India. All the workers are currently self supporting. About 90% of their evangelistic work is done throughout the Hindu and tribal peoples in rural and urban slum areas. Workers hold regular outreach events and have planted 7 churches so far.

Religion has always been an important part of the India’s culture. The vast majority of Indians associate themselves with at least one religion. Indian census has established that Hinduism accounts for 80% of the population of India. The second largest religion is Islam, at about 13% of the population. About 2% of Indians consider themselves Christians. (Census of India, 2001)

2) CHURCH SPONSORSHIP. Your church can sponsor a church plant in India each month, receive prayer requests, pictures and updates.  You can personally communicate with leaders via email. Sponsorship requires a monthly commitment of $200.00 to a church plant overseas. Contact us  if your group is interested.

3)SPECIAL NEEDS. Connect your small group, church group or bible study with a way of helping around the world. Sponsor a special need of overseas projects – such as providing water filters for the orphanage or Bibles for the churches or HIV/AIDS medicines for the outreaches. Many of these special needs can be met through networking or through fund-raising.

“It has been incredible to see a pure heart of compassion being nurtured in these children.These kids are giving to those they’ve never met before, children across the world…because they’re understanding what Jesus meant when He said to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. It’s the simple gospel being preached by this young generation, not only in words but in action.”
