In 2015, we were contacted by a close friend of ICC with a request to consider supporting a “dear brother” from India, Christudas Earla. He believed he was one of God’s anointed leaders for the future of the church planting movement in India with some of the most unreached people in the world. Once we met him, we immediately fell in love with his vision, strategy, and work. He had been praying for a church to partner with him, and we had been praying for more partnership opportunities among the unreached. It was clear that God answered our prayers, and our India partnership began.
Christudas, along with his partner organization, GAP Ministries, seeks to equip, encourage, and support church planting efforts in the unreached areas of India. Their work consists of pastoral and discipleship training, as well as going to unreached tribal, rural, and urban areas to host children’s clubs, feed orphans, and help widows and the persecuted.
