Central India Christian Mission
Ajai Lall grew up in a Christian home where his parents served the Lord faithfully in full time Christian Ministry. He and his wife, Indu, began Central India Christian Mission in December 1982. The mission has grown from two to over 780 full time workers and has planted over 1100 churches in Central and Northern India and the countries of Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan. The primary focus of CICM is Evangelism, Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Medical Ministry, Disaster relief, Vocational Training and Church Planting. In 2014 their ministers report that they have planted over 152 new churches, had over 51,000 decisions, trained 350 Christian leaders, cared for over 5,000 children in the Children’s ministry, including operating 5 children’s homes and helping support over 500 widows. In addition the medical center treated over 60,000 patients/year in the medical ministry. Our own minister, Creighton, visited there 2 years ago on a 2 week mission trip and had a great opportunity to preach and share the gospel with our brothers and sisters in Christ in India.
