Between India’s second COVID-19 surge and growing hostility towards Christians, Gospel ministries in India need all hands on deck. That includes local believers, mission organizations, and international church partners!
To get more church partners involved with what God is doing in India, Mission India just hired a new Director of Church Engagement, David Chakranarayan!
He says, “There’s a tremendous opportunity to partner with Mission India to go and invest where not many people are going among the most unreached people groups in the world. So my basic role is just reaching out to churches and connecting them with the work that’s happening in India.”
Chakranarayan formerly served as a church planter in Ohio for 16 years before coming on board with Mission India. For him, the mission to share Jesus in India is personal.
“I’ve always had a passion for reaching India because I grew up overseas,” Chakranarayan says. “I was born in Dubai, lived in Mumbai, India, lived in Abu Dhabi, and then my family moved to the US in 1991. But generations ago, my family in India was saved as a result of missionary movement in India. So I’m the beneficiary of that spiritual legacy. I’ve always wanted to give back what God has blessed me with.”
