Trusting God for Giant Things - Building Expansion
In the beginning, Pastor Anvit remembers, “Our church building was dwarf size trying to cater to the giant things that God was intending to do.”
Fifteen years later after starting in a home with just five people, the ministry has moved from one rented facility to another. They reach out into a region home to over 14 million people. They provide training programs that impact over 2,000 churches in North India. Out of this, the India Church Network ministers to orphans, victims of trafficking, unreached people, developing churches and the suffering. At least 200,000 people are included in these congregations. God is doing “giant things.”
“Today we look back in awe at what the Lord has done.”
Visionary leaders “waited many years for the right building to be used for maximum impact for the Gospel.” After completing a facility in 2019, they looked to the adjoining empty lot and saw potential for a multi-faceted ministry center. With few urban churches in a city of millions, the property is located where multiple medical facilities create a population of nurses, doctors, and patients.
The expansion supports engagement in two main ways:
- training national missionaries for outreach
- providing a church in this sector of the city
The expansion will provide two levels to:
- house church services
- host trainings and events
- provide larger kitchen capacity
- support leaders with office space
- resource believers for gatherings
The multi-faceted center expansion will:
- serve as an outreach base to reach people
- include a congregation of professionals to support center use
- provide additional revenue from event space when not in use
- receive oversight by the KCF ministries team for operations
- A budget of $150-200K covers: site acquisition and development, building construction, and internal fixtures and furnishings.
When the India Church Network leaders look back to the congregation of five in a home, they remember trusting God for “giant things.”
One again, KCF is trusting the Lord to do giant things.
In partnership with Live Global, we believe God can provide for this project to be accomplished in His timing, despite the challenges of COVID-19. We’re praying for North American partners to join in bringing this Gospel vision to life for “giant things” in Kolkata. We would love to include you.
