India – Transformed from Within
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. Luke 4:18-19
A Land of Contrasts
India, the world’s second largest nation is characterised by contrast and contradiction. India’s rich are getting richer, while her poor are sinking deeper into a seemingly unbreakable cycle of poverty and deprivation. While privileged and educated people are discovering a world of opportunity, centuries-old traditions of segregation and oppression continue. For the low caste and Dalit-Bahujan people (untouchables) there seems no hope of a better life.
Training and Equipping
OM India Ministries is committed to ending this type of oppression on all levels and emphasizing education, economics, human development, social justice and spiritual transformation. Our ministries are focused on the Dalit-Bahujan people.
OM has inspired a rapidly growing church movement committed to partnering and working within society and not outside it. OM India Ministries is dedicated to training and equipping national Indian Christian workers as instruments of culturally sensitive, innovative methods of transformation.
Almost 2,000 Indian men and women are devoted to serving Christ in their nation with OM India Ministries. These national workers serve in Good Shepherd Community Churches, Dalit Education, Advocacy and Human Rights, Theological Education and Personnel Development and Women’s Ministry and Empowerment.
