About the Region

India is the second most populated country in the world with over 1.2 billion people. It’s a pluralistic society, meaning there’s tolerance for diversity among religious cultures and traditions. This makes sense, as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism originated here. According to a 2011 census, nearly 80% of the population practices Hinduism, with Islam being the second most widely practiced religion in the country at 14%.

A multilingual, multiethnic society, India has one of the fastest growing economies in the world with a rising, young working class. However, 2013 data shows the average annual per capita income is $1,250 (US). Overcrowding in urban areas creates a wide variety of social challenges including availability of appropriate housing, sanitation, food and clean drinking water. 

About the Ministry

Established in 2005, Partners India International is an indigenous-led, Christian missions agency committed to strategically proclaim the Gospel to the most unreached and unengaged people groups. It offers leadership development by equipping Bible students for their call to ministry. It also offers compassion services in which the love and hope of Jesus are demonstrated through medical camps, literacy and development programs, AIDS awareness and skilled-labor training programs.   

Team Projects

Our short-term team will support Partners India International as it reaches into villages outside of two large northern cities. These missions involve ministering to village children, distributing health and hygiene kits, providing medical support (when teams include qualified medical personnel), mentoring pastors and students, teaching English at local schools, offering basic computer training, engaging in question-and-answer sessions with college students, speaking to teenagers about God’s love, distributing food, and more.  

PAC-Supported Missionaries

While each short-term team raises the expenses related to the work of the team, contributions to the Global Ministry Fund help support the ongoing ministry needs of our missionary partners in India. The safety of all of our missionaries is critical to us. Some serve in parts of the world that require additional sensitivity. If you would like to know more about our missionaries in India, please contact the PAC Global Outreach Ministry at 609.799.9000 x20.
