Immediate Need: $250 to train 3 missionaries
About this Mission Project
India is diverse in culture and tradition. There are many young people in the Baptist Churches of Northeast India who are interested in being missionaries. Many have been sent both within and outside India, but have little impact because they are not prepared for cross-cultural mission work. This results in opposition to the Gospel and persecution of the missionaries.
While many churches in India are interested in sponsoring missionaries, missionary training isn’t available. The Council of Baptist Churches of Northeast India (CBCNEI) seeks to train missionaries in a “Holistic Approach to Mission.” This will give them basic skills in development and how to incorporate that approach into mission and evangelism. The training will help missionaries be accepted into diverse cultures and thus able to share the Gospel more effectively.
- A gift of $100 will train one missionary
- $250 will train three missionaries
- $500 will train six missionaries
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $ 5,000 every year for the training of dozens of missionaries within and outside of India. The purpose of this project is to provide them with cross-cultural training that will make them more effective witnesses of the Gospel and better able to nurture new believers. This project will be managed by Rev. Dr. Jolly Rimai and the Mission Board of the Council of Baptist Churches in North East India (CBCNEI). It is anticipated that the project will result in more people accepting Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and an increase in the number of churches.
