The 2018 India team is full! If you would like to be on the interest list for the 2019 team use our contact form and we will keep you updated on next year’s plans. Want to support the 2018 team? Take a look at some of their fundraising needs on the Mission Market site.

Team Activities

Though Indian Christians form a tiny minority (2.3%) in the second most populous country in the world, many of them are dedicated, passionate believers, willing to sacrifice everything to share the gospel with other Indians. They have a daunting task! Hinduism and Islam are not friendly toward Christianity and the country faces massive social problems, such as widespread poverty and sexual exploitation. The team has an opportunity to encourage Indian believes and work alongside them to share Jesus with children and teens. The team will focus on VBS and camp-style programs. More details coming soon.

Safety

The primary safety concerns in India include religious violence and the situations that arise from living in a developing country (pick-pocketing, no enforcement of traffic laws, etc.). We choose our ministry locations carefully to avoid current religious hotspots. Because foreigners are not generally targeted and we work closely with Indian Christians who know local conditions, we feel that the risk is limited. You should pray about this and decide if you are comfortable with the security situation before applying for the team.

Contact us to let us that know you are interested and we will keep you updated on the details.
