The scriptures proclaim, There is way that seems right to man, But in the end it leads to death (Proverbs 14:12). “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to tell them?”  (Romans 10:13-14)

India’s population of 1.4 billion has only 25 million Christians and there are more than 500,000 villages where no evangelist/church planter has ever stepped.

In response, Equip India has conducted 5,000 evangelism workshops since July of 1999, equipping believers–thousands of pastors and lay people representing 30,000+  churches in how to share the “good news of Jesus Christ” and how to return to their churches and train their whole congregation to share their faith; including instructing each member in how to reach out and share the Gospel within their network of relationships.

We pivoted in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic to remain a Beacon of Christ’s Light in India!

We have recently made fundraising changes that will financially benefit the impact of your donation. One step we took was to create the “1999 Founders Club,” made up of a committed group of board members, partners and several foundations. This Club has agreed to fund 100% of our U.S. Operating Expenses allowing 100% of your donation to be wired to partners in South Asia where the costs of operating the ministry are 75-90% less than in the U.S. Our cost structure remains low and our efficiency remains high. Our indigenous partners conduct meetings for only $250 and each consists of an average of:

  • 40 church members and a pastor trained as life-time witnesses with 3 nearby pastors trained as teachers.
  • 20 professions of faith at each workshop during the on-the-job training.
  • A reach to 420 unbelievers (10 per each participant)

When everyone is struggling and desperately in need of hope, we can help! BUT we need help to get to our goal. We need YOUR help! Please prayerfully consider what you can do to help. Thank you!
