U.S. Churches Helping Plant Churches in India through Mission India

Churches in the United States are helping plant churches in India! And it’s all because of Mission India’s Church Planter Training.

Indian believers in the Church Planter Training program are learning how to establish strong and growing faith communities. Mission India’s US-based church partners help make this happen with funds. And lots of prayer.

Erik Morsehead at Mission India says, “With Mission India’s model of really helping enable Christians in India live out what God has called them to do, we are helping raise funds and support…to go then train Christians in India to plant churches. For over 40 years, that’s what we’ve been doing!”

Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church in Tennessee is one congregation that has partnered with Mission India to support Church Planter Training for over 10 years.

“They chose to get involved with India specifically because it’s really, in part, a numbers issue in India,” Morsehead says. “India is home to almost 1.4 billion people and so many of them have never actually had the chance to hear the Gospel.

“That broke Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church’s heart. They wanted to find a way and partner with someone that is working towards being able to share the Gospel and the love of Jesus [in India.] So they chose to partner with us!”
