Ever wondered what a strategic discipleship ministry among the grassroots of western-central and northern India entails?
If so, the ministry of Rev. Shirish together with TAFTEE is probably a good place to start. Amongst the many ministry endeavours of The Association For Theological Education by Extension, Rev. Shirish and the team have been embarking on a most commendable effort: to equip and disciple village church pastors, evangelists, and missionaries for church planting and growth.
Rev. Jim Paul is a chaplain at Christian Medical College and Hospital (CMC) in Tamil Nadu, India.
His ministry of pastoral care to terminally ill patients also extends to that of their family members who suffer with them:
It was exciting to see the thirst of many to study the Bible in depth and be equipped to share the gospel in different parts of Maharashtra and north India.
In July, we were actively involved with Kolhapur Church Council, primarily focusing on equipping village church pastors, evangelists and missionaries for church planting and growth. We enrolled 50 leaders in this region through TAFTEE certificate level based on the life of Jesus Christ – a course on Christian discipleship and ministry.

After over a year of background work, Peacemakers’ project for women prisoners, their children and families has begun. These are some of the most neglected people, and we desire for them to experience hope and transformation in their lives.
Joginder sharing his testimony
Six students from various north Indian states successfully completed the “Following Jesus Christ” course on Sept 13, 2014 while 30 nursing students in Satbharwa, Jharkhand state, have enrolled for it. One of the students who graduated, Joginder Masih, has testified that the course has enabled him to know Jesus intimately. Joginder, who hails from a Hindu family, is now motivated to share the Gospel in his home state of Haryana, one of the least evangelised states in India.
Let’s continue to pray for the spirit of God to move in unfamiliar territories, so that the 30 nursing students would progress well in training until they have completed all the six modules. Please uphold the newly enrolled Punjab native evangelists in prayers too.
