Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ - Luke 10:9
Gaining access to communities through needs-based programs is the key to finding men and women of peace that will help plant the seed of the Gospel in an unreached community. We operate over 15 different programs that directly meet the needs in communities located in North India. We call these various programs 10:NINE Projects.
These programs are facilitated through Community Learning Centers (CLCs). Community Learning Centers (CLC) are the embodiment of the holistic ministry approach described in Luke 10:1-9. The goals of each CLC are to access the community, discover the man of peace (Luke 10:5), provide resources, implement service ministry opportunities that are locally relevant, and meet the needs of people where they live. When needs are being met, the gospel of the Kingdom finds fertile soil, and the CLC leaders can begin the process of disciple making and multiplication. By meeting the needs in these communities and solving local problems, the CLC leaders acquire a respectable position in the community, always with the objective to advance the Kingdom.
Using this holistic and community access approach, the gospel has been planted in places that were heretofore barren ground.
