Mission India

Westend CRC has a long relationship with Mission India, beginning in 1971 when Rev. John DeVries was called to reach India with the story of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Mission India is not a “sending” organization but an “equipping” one. We work with over 1,200 ministry partners, training them to transform India through the love of Christ. Four out of five people in India have never met a Christian. And yet, people’s hearts are open to the Good News like never before! God loves India. He has called us to bring hope, to bring freedom from fear, to shine His Light in dark places—all the while establishing churches for ongoing discipleship.

We do this through three ministries:

  • Church Planter Training: We train Church Planters to reach their own people with the Good News.
  • Adult Literacy Classes: We provide literacy through Bible-based lessons to the 70% of people in India that are illiterate.
  • Children’s Bibles Clubs: Much like our VBS, these Clubs bring children and their parents to a belief in Jesus Christ through Scripture and songs.

Mission India understands that the first work of missions is prayer.

Mission India is focused on one thing: making disciples and planting churches in the nation of India.

Mission India is a ministry which measures and reports how God is using all of us in the field.

Mission India does not create ongoing dependency, but teaches ministries to depend on God and create their own sustainability.

The Holy Spirit continues to work through the staff, partners, and many volunteers in India to bring men, women, and children to Christ and see true transformation take place in their lives.

Prayer Requests:
  • Pray for those who are being persecuted for their faith, that they will have the courage and strength to continue to witness to others.
  • Pray for the persecutors so their hearts and minds will be changed to follow the one true God.
  • Pray for the thousands of people in India that we are unable to train through our programs due to funding limitations.
  • Pray that all the people who hear of Jesus for the first ıme will believe in Him and will become transformed.
  • Pray that India will become a Chrisıan nation.
