Financial Support

There are opportunities to financially assist in the construction of a church building in one of India’s villages. Such a simple building provides stability, respectability, and opportunity for growth in the entire region under the influence of this church. It also provides opportunity for the growing fellowships in surrounding villages to hold special events, like weddings and Christmas celebrations. The building ends up being a combination of a worship place for the local church and a training center for pastors in that entire region. The effect of such an investment lasts for several generations.

South East Asia has the largest number of un-reached people groups on the planet earth. Hundreds of people groups still have not heard about the Savior and tens of thousands of villages & towns are still without a Christian witness. In these lands the harvest is truly plenteous but “laborers are few.”

How will they hear, unless someone goes? How will someone go, unless we send? How will we send someone to be effective, unless they are trained?

It is critical to establish bible schools that will continuously raise up church planters and church planting leaders to reach the unreached. IET has several regional Bible schools, named the Beersheba Bible Institutes, which train church planters within their unique regional language. Each school offers training to a unique unreached region and language group.
