About Soura Leader Development
After decades of relative isolation, the Soura people reached out to Live Global through a relationship with a national partner. Early in the 20th century, the gospel came to this people group of India by way of a Canadian missionary. Before the 21st century arrived, a full Bible translation was completed. During that time period, faith in Christ spread to small congregations across the hill country. In this predominantly Hindu region, approximately 40 pastors each lead many churches. Generally isolated from outside resources, leaders have come together in an organized way, though without opportunity for training and development to advance the multiplication of churches and growth of disciples. The leaders of the Soura churches have reached out to partner with Live Global to resource and develop the ministry of the Gospel as a light in this dark region of South Asia. Training will take place in areas such as God's design for the family, theology, expository preaching, ministry to children, women's ministry, and leadership.
