ndia being a rural country has 60-70 % of its population still living in villages. City of Madurai is surrounded by hundreds of villages within 5-15 kms reach and people living there are mostly poor, illiterate and not knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. Since the time our Pastor started his ministry at Usilampatti, he has preached the gospel in remote unreached villages going by walk or cycle. His burning desire to spread the light of the Gospel in interior villages has resulted in forming a village ministry team with committed members of the church. To begin with, the team visited villages every second Saturday of the month from 10am to 5 pm. As an outcome 15-20 village congregations gather for worship on Sundays and children for Sunday class. Presently there are 3 teams with more than 100 members under the leadership of 6 elders of the church namely, Bros. Tennis Thomas, Baskar Xavier, Paulos, Jothilal, Stephen & Shanmugavel, covering 3 different areas (Arumpanur, Alagar Koil and Natham) around Madurai. Every Sunday afternoon the 3 teams reach these villages in Vans/ their own vehicles and meet the villagers, visit some of their homes, pray for their needs and conduct prayer meetings and Sunday class for children.Anyone interested to join the village ministry team may contact the Pastor or one of the elders to know more details. Please uphold this ministry in your prayers.
