Equipping Nationals

Empowering nationals to reach their own people!


 

We believe one of the most effective and efficient ways to share the gospel around the world is by equipping National Ministers to reach out to their own people. In many remote places around the world, there are trustworthy men and women of God who have a passion for reaching the lost; our vision is to support and equip these ministers for full-time missions and evangelism.

“And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." (2 Timothy 2:2)


Currently Gospel Projects International has five National Ministers who work with us on a full-time basis. These ministers hold multiple outreach programs in remote villages every month, along with serving as pastors for local churches. Also, our National Ministers oversee Aasha Children’s Home and teach classes at our Bible school.

Because the standard of living is usually much lower in developing countries, the cost for sponsoring a full-time National Minister is very low (usually only about $100-$300 per month), but this support GREATLY increases their influence. In the area where our National Ministers are located in S.E. India, only a few percent of the population are Christian and most of these believers are women who have little or no control over their family’s finances. This makes it extremely difficult for an Indian pastor or evangelist to have the support they need to focus full-time on ministry.

Gummileru Bible Institute

Another way GPI works to equip National Ministers is by providing Biblical training for village pastors. In 2011 we started our first International Bible School in India called “Gummileru Bible Institute” (Gummileru is the name of the village where the school is located). The primary purpose for GPI's International Bible Schools is to provide Biblical training for village pastors. It's exciting for us to help train new Christian leaders around the world! Currently GPI has two Bible schools in S.E. India.
