New Life Resource Center

South Asia is home to more than 3,600 least-reached people groups—more than any other region on earth. Over 1.7 billion people there are without access to a church that preaches the gospel in their language and culture. The New Life Resource Center is working to change that! It equips South Asian believers to plant reproducing churches in small villages and trains them so that they’re able to support the ministries of their churches.

Parth* is one of those believers. A former communist extremist, he worked with a rebel organization for many years. But he became disillusioned with the group’s activities and found peace in attending church and reading the Bible. After leaving the extremists behind and accepting Christ, he was trained by the New Life Resource Center in the Word of God. Now he is living and sharing the good news in his native village, working to see a church planted there.

Ministries of the New Life Resource Center include:

  • A two-year church-planting program, which combines classroom learning with field training. Graduates establish new churches in least-reached communities and serve in existing local churches.
  • Weeklong seminars designed to renew and strengthen local pastors, their spouses and lay leaders. Topics include evangelism, spiritual formation, discipleship, pastoral counseling, spiritual gifts, marriage and family issues, developing a missions program and conflict resolution.
  • Two-day seminars for local Christian couples, designed to strengthen the relationships of husbands and wives. These events help to build up marriages, which provide a public representation of the love of Christ and His Church in action.
  • Vocational skills training for local believers, which enables them to help support local pastors and churches and benefit their communities. Participants also receive training in the Bible and life skills, all so that they can become effective witnesses in their communities and contributing members of their churches.
  • Scholarships for children of South Asian pastors, which enable them to pursue higher education and serve God using their gifts.

By giving toward the New Life Resource Center, you help prepare believers to take the gospel to the least-reached in South Asia!

Specific needs:

  • $50 sends a couple to a two-day marriage seminar.
  • $400-$1,000 covers the cost of a scholarship for the son or daughter of a pastor.
  • $2,000 pays for each five-day training seminar for pastors and lay leaders.
  • $5,000 ($250/month) covers the cost of a two-year training program for one couple

Pray for the New Life Resource Center:

  • Political tensions in the region are rising. Pray that God will bring positive changes through the elections.
  • Ask God to bring candidates for the church planter training program. Due to the present situation in South Asia, people are not coming forward to join the program. 
  • Pray that South Asian believers will be effectively equipped to minister in their churches and to plant new fellowships.
  • Ask God to use those who’ve completed training at the New Life Resource Center for His glory.
