Stories from the Field
The church is experiencing explosive growth. Two million new believers and 15,000 new churches in one year. One church leader stated, “Rapid leadership development is critical for India.” Another commented, “In the front door, out the back.” People are falling through the cracks because of a lack of trained pastors.
