(Gujarat Outreach Support by Planting churches, Economic change and Literacy training) is a GROW sub-Committee that raises short-term support for indigenous evangelists who are planting churches in India. GOSPEL was set up primarily for CRCA congregations and individuals to partner with the emerging and growing church in the Central West of India. That region of India was selected because it seemed that there God opened a door for the Gospel in a land where a huge number of unbelieving image bearers live in difficult circumstances.
GOSPEL officially began in mid 2002 with a team of 10 evangelists who would aim to plant two house churches in a two year time frame. Now there are some 40 evangelists hard at work spreading the good news. As well as church planting, we are also involved in children literacy programmes and hope to get started also with health and economic development programmes.
