Since 1982, through God’s will and hand of provision CICM has planted over 1,600 churches where on any given Sunday, over 360,000 people gather to worship. CICM has a growing team of dedicated church planters who regularly start new ministries in unreached regions. Many of CICM’s church planters were trained at CICM’s Bible Academies. Others earned ministry and theology degrees from colleges and seminaries in India and come to be a part of the work God is doing through CICM.
Most church planters serve more than one congregation. Throughout the week they share the Gospel and help provide for the needs of the people in the villages and areas they serve. These church planters also help identify children who may need to be rescued or enter CICM’s sponsorship program.
There are many ways you can send out a church planter. Just $250/month or $3,000/year supports a church planter full-time. As a result of each of their efforts, we are seeing hundreds of people per year immersed into Christ.
What to multiply a church planter's efforts? Church planters who have a bicycle or motorbike are able to reach more areas with the Gospel. Consider giving $75 for a bicycle or $1,200 for a church planter to have a motorcycle. As congregation becomes established, helping to build a church building is $25,000.
