An Indian national strategy coordinator sitting in an Acts 29 Strategy Coordinator training workshop heard the words of II Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” This message pierced his heart and he set out to apply the principles he learned in Acts 29 to see a Church Planting Movement. The results were a phenomenal outpouring of God’s Spirit that resulted in more than 1700 churches and more than 42,000 new believers among one of India’s most intractable people groups.
One of the many examples you will read about in this CPM profile is of a new believer in the faith less than five years with very little education who started 9 new churches. You will find out much more about the amazing things that are happening in this Church Planting Movement.

Despite these challenges lay leaders are conducting worship with simple obedience based Bible studies and building theologically sound disciples in Christ. View the rest of this profile here.
