North East India House Church Movement
About this Mission Project
ASSAM in North East India borders Bangladesh and Bhutan, two nations unreached for Christ. There are 80 house churches along those borders, and their members are working among some of the most challenging communities.
Despite great personal risk, 50 volunteer leaders are engaged in evangelism and church planting through Neighborhood Ministries, and dozens of new believers prepare for baptism each month. The leaders need training and Bibles. The coordinator and 10 community workers under him need support for their travel and ministry expenses to baptize and teach new believers.
- $10 provides four Bibles.
- $50 covers monthly expenses for one community worker.
- $100 covers the coordinator’s travel for a month.
- $200 pays the coordinator’s monthly salary.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $15,000 annually to provide support for the important work of evangelistic outreach in North East India. The purpose of this project is to enable Neighborhood Ministries to establish house churches on the borders with Bangladesh and Bhutan, provide Bibles to new believers and train volunteer leaders.
This project will be managed by International Ministries Development Workers in North East India Katie and Taku Longkumer. They will work with the leaders to impart training encouragement and guidance.
It is anticipated that this project will increase the number of house churches, strengthen new believers and equip them to reach out to their neighbors.

These men and women are believers in Christ from the Ishmaelite community. Like many houses churches, theirs is made up of 10 to 15 believers who gather every Friday and Sunday to worship in their own languages and use their own local customs. They study the word of God, pray and extend Jesus’ love to their neighbors in order to see God transform lives.
