Need and Opportunity
India needs far more cross-cultural workers than the Indian churches can realistically provide. India receives only 6% of the world’s full-time Christian workers. It is imperative that national missionaries are trained and sent out as they are better suited to reach their communities and fulfill the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. About 400 million people in India have never heard the name of Jesus; hearts are open to the Good News like never before. The harvest is plenty and laborers are few.
How it works
The vision for Southern Asia Leadership Institute is to see a generation of leaders with character, integrity, and a heart for worship, serving Jesus Christ in their own communities throughout India. The Institute established in South India, endeavors to prepare new leaders for Kingdom work and to equip them to minister to the unreached people groups in India by offering degrees and diplomas in theological and leadership studies. The Institute offers a three year degree program in theological and leadership studies and a two-year diploma in theological studies. The students, many of whom are new in their faith, stay on campus for the duration of their study.
