Vision Spotlight: Disciple Maker School

Over the last month or so, we’ve been highlighting the different components of the 10-year plan the Lord gave our partner.* Today, we’ll zero in on the Disciple Maker School (DMS) he created to train and equip young adults to serve as ch*rch planters, pastors and other strong leaders for the Kingdom. The majority of the workers needed to accomplish the vision of No Village Left – to plant a ch*rch in every village of Northern India by 2033 – will be trained at this school.

“I established the DMS because God transformed my life when I was in B*ble school many years ago,” said our partner. “He taught me to live with purpose and vision. I want to teach this next generation how to lead God’s Kingdom in India, to give them a purpose.”

The inaugural class of 52 male and female students graduated from a six-month residential course in Mission Study in January 2023. They examined topics such as the New Testament, Old Testament and life of Jesus, as well as studied ch*rch planting manuals, computers and spoken English. Thirty seven of the 52 have already started their own ch*rches! Here are two students’ inspiring stories:

Sanjay* is the first believer in his family. He originally came to the school to learn English and computers – not to study the B*ble. Sanjay said he grew up worshiping the 33 million Hindu gods, but not one of them had ever said he was the way, the truth and the life. After completing this B*ble course, Sanjay realized that he had found the right God, the real one. He said, “I know that Jesus is the one, true God.” And now, he has dedicated his life to serving the Lord and telling others.

Divya* was raised in a Hindu family in West B*ngal. One day, a ch*rch planter visited her village looking for a person of peace – someone who would be welcoming to believers and the Good News. Well, he found Divya’s mother, who shared that she was suffering from a lot of health issues. The ch*rch planter told her about Jesus, prayed, and invited her and the family to his house ch*rch. Jesus healed the mom and the whole family became followers of Christ.

But, that’s not the end of the story! The ch*rch planter encouraged Divya to go to the Disciple Maker School and learn more about Jesus. At the time, she couldn’t speak English or even write in Hindi. Now, she wants to become a servant of God and help spread His Kingdom in one of the darkest places in the world. Hallelujah!

Thanks to God’s faithfulness and the generosity of a ch*rch in the Bay Area, 100 more students like Sanjay and Divya will enroll in the next six-month course this June. Are you interested in supporting more Disciple Maker School students and expanding the program?

Plan for 10 Years

Train Ch*rch Planters 15,000

Build Disciple Maker Schools 10

To train one student in the residential DMS for six months is $300, for a total of $4.5 million in 10 years. We want to build a DMS building in 10 regional training centers in Northern India at $200,000 each, for a total of $2 million.
