Delhi, India, where Delhi is located, has the greatest number of unreached unengaged people groups anywhere in the world. One out of every 12 people in the world live in North India. Delhi is a huge mega-city of more than 15 million people. It is a city of contrasts with rich and poor, or every religion in every state of the country. New Delhi, a part within Delhi, is the capital of the country, so Delhi as a whole has a significant role in the leadership and governing of the country. Historically, whoever has ruled Delhi has ruled the country, and therefore, we believe Delhi to be strategic for all of India.
 

Now in our third year of the partnership: SC Baptists A Witness to the World, many churches have begun their own partnerships in Delhi and North India. Your church can join with one of these or you can take your own group. Contact the Missions Mobilization Group at 803-765-0030 ext. 4800 or email Tim Rice at timrice@scbaptist.org for more information.

 

Embrace ASAP201 is a 10 day missions experience in India that will train and equip your church to work among the UUPGs. The dates for these trainings are as follows:

Embrace ASAP 201 - New Delhi: 2015 (dates coming soon)

During the trip you will:

  • Learn from the strategies of your IMB field workers and begin to team with them.
  • Be inspired as you meet national partners whom God is raising up to take His truth to unreached/unengaged peoples.
  • Learn from these national brothers and sisters, assist in training many in strategic church planting strategies, and pray for them.
  • Make friends with South Asian people: drink their tea, talk with them in English and through translators, and touch people’s lives by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Imagine being the first to share Christ with people who have literally never heard the name JESUS! Your love for Him will shine into their lives.
  • Begin to use the tools you’ve been learning. Go into new areas, pray strategically, look for the man of peace, research, map communities, follow the Spirit’s leading…As people respond, gather them for worship and begin to train them to reach their oikos.
  • Return to your church family with a vision and prayer strategy that will strategically involve your church to engage your South Asian UUPG. You will be amazed at the opportunities! You will be changed by the experience!
