India Lockdown

heading icon


RHEMA graduates struggle to feed their own families but find ways to serve others. They have become beacons of hope. We have provided support to many of these graduates. Watch this video to learn more.
India, with a population of 1.3 billion, was required to go under strict lockdown by their government. Without any notice, millions of people living below the poverty line are left without work and way of getting food. Migrant workers had to quickly find shelter or walk hundreds of miles back to their families. Millions of people are now without food. When interviewed, one person says we are more in fear of dying from starvation than from the Corona Virus.
RHEMA Global has been able to step up and support our pastors and graduates living around India. It has always been part of our mission to encourage our student graduates and pastors to support and heal their communities in times of need. "They go where we cannot go." With travel restrictions and lockdown requirements in place, RHEMA Global needed to find a way to reach our pastors and student graduates. We were able to send funds to them to provide food and relief for thousands of people.
It isn't without the support of our partners that we are able to do so. We ask that you please continue to pray for everyone affected by Corona Virus, but especially those in India who are struggling to survive from missing their essential needs - food, water, and shelter.

Just because we can’t go, doesn’t mean we can’t do. Travel bans and the Covid-19 lockdowns are keeping us from conducting our institutes in India and from finishing our institute in Liberia. We have shifted focus to our graduates and are developing online lessons to provide continuing education. Our graduates are ready for new material and our teachers are excited to add new lessons to the core curriculum through online teaching.  In addition to this we are sending as much financial help to these graduates to help them support their families and communities.

25 Years

heading icon
For 25 years we have provided core seminary curriculum to pastors around the world who would not have access to any other Bible training. We send teachers, give them the materials, provide for their food and lodging and pay the expense of their transportation for the 8-10 week short-term Bible College. Through this grass roots strategy we have trained over 10,000 pastors who have gone on to start churches, lead orphanages or lead Christian schools for children. Our graduates Go Where We Can’t and serve unreached people groups in a way no American missionary can reach. RHEMA’s approach to missions is revolutionary and is the most effective and cost-efficient way to share the message of Jesus.
