Using Juxtaposition in India to Share Christ


The juxtaposition in India can be quite remarkable. Poor villages can be located right next to a wealthy neighborhood. High rises next to shantytowns. And universities next to slums.

Our Live Global national partner we call Paul has decided to maximize this juxtaposition for God's glory. Paul is a university-educated medical doctor who has set aside this career and taken up another as a missionary to his own people in India.

He noticed the tremendous need for discipleship among university students as well as a huge need to care for the needs (physical and spiritual) of people in the slums. This is how his ministry was born.

Loving People in the Slums

For ten years, Paul and his team have loved and cared for people in the slums through medical camps, education, counseling, clothing distribution, and overall relationships. One specific way has been through an after-school tutoring program.

Hundreds of kids have been helped with their education, and even come to know the Lord, as a result of this program.

But where did he find all of the tutors? At the nearby university of course!

University Students Become Disciples and Tutors

Volunteers at the nearby university have answered the need to go into the slum to tutor students who need it. And at the same time, these volunteers have become friends with, and discipled by, Paul and his ministry team.

Through this unique ministry strategy, Paul has found a way to evangelize and disciple young people in both demographics effectively.

Slum Kids Being Served by their Own

Today Paul and his team are even seeing kids who grew up in the slums become college graduates, lovers of Jesus, and upcoming leaders to take over this tutoring ministry themselves!

What a blessing to see the kids of the slum being served by their own.

This has allowed Paul and his team to move to other slum areas and become a part of God's saving work in other locations in the city.


Paul set aside his medical practice to get involved in developing Bible studies in the Delhi universities. This ministry has expanded into the slums.
