At the age of 22, the founder of the GOSPEL INDIA MISSION, Santhosh Chellappan, had a confrontation with Jesus when he was actively working as a leader of Communist Party. Communist Party never believe in the existence of any God. The motto of Communist Party is “achieve freedom through WAR”.
In spite of threat for his life from the political party for which he worked for several years, he kept his new faith in Christ growing . Born in a family that was fully committed to follow the Communist Marxist Party, he had to face rejection from his family too.
By the guidance of the Holy Spirit, he came to north part of India and there he found Christianity is less than 1 %. The burden for the lost souls inspired him to reach these poor people with the love of Christ.
Later, he, along with his co-workers and friends started going to various parts of India to preach and teach from the word of God.
God has blessed his life with a dedicated and God called woman, Ajitha as his wife. She is a teacher by profession, but left the job and serving the Lord together with her husband. God has blessed them with two children, Sancia and Sharon.
One of the greatest work they are doing is among children. Every year thousands of children are deing in India due to malnutrition, improper care and lack of proper medication, food etc.
Gospel India Mission is working among needy by helping them find their study, stay and fooding. With two orphanages, one in Maharashtra and another in Kerala, GIM is taking care of 21 children, who are either single parented or orphan or from literally poor back ground.
Making disciples for Christ according to the Great Commission given by our Lord, GIM is reaching to various parts of India with their dedicated co-workers and planting churches and prayer fellowships.
Working in the villages and slums are one of the main targets of GIM, as they are rejected by all means and living without any hope for a better future. More than 600000 villages are still need to be evangelized in India. Gospel India Mission is also serving the people of India by taking care of Orphans, Old Aged People, Aids patient Children, Society Developments etc through different ministries.
In order to achieve our targets, we need the supports of the children of God through prayers and sacrificial financial contribution. We also welcome anyone who is willing to visit our ministry field churches/Orphanages for teaching the word of God. We also would like to partner with any ministries to reach the millions of lost souls with Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In reaching the lost,
Santhosh & Ajitha
