LOVE OF CHRIST CHURCH INDIA
In 1997, God gave us a vision to adopt one of the 1,700 unreached people groups.* As we prayed for which group to adopt, God led us to Punjab, India, a region straddling Pakistan to the West and northern India to the East. Our vision was to concentrate energy and resources from our local church to make a significant impact on these people.
That same year, we participated in an outdoor crusade and saw thousands come to Christ, confirming our call to adopt these people. After the crusade, we began to support native pastors and evangelists to do ministry outreaches in small villages surrounding the crusade site. Love of Christ Church India was born. Several years later, we partnered with Canaan Bible College to help train native pastors. Each year we graduate nearly a dozen pastors and help support those qualified and ready to begin church planting.
Through our giving efforts, LOCC India has purchased land, built churches, conducted evangelistic outreaches and provided pastors with bicycles and other needed vehicles. As a result, more churches are planted and more lives are rescued from darkness into God’s glorious Light!
