The goal of this project is to see a movement of disciples, leaders and churches that are sustainable and use business to extend the reach of the gospel. One of the people we trained in September 2019 to become a facilitator for Pioneer Business Planting started a project in India. Right away in October 2019, she conducted a Pioneer Business Planting consultation with 20 participants. 

Right now the work has expanded to multiple places in India where we helped church planters start a trolley business and a rice and cotton farm. 

Ashish became a believer when he was 18 yrs old, at the same time as his older brother. Their father had accepted a job as a church cleaner and he had the cleaning work done by his 2 sons. They had the habit of resting after their work on the back of the church. One day they heard the pastor speak about the forgiveness of sins. At that very moment, both brothers were convicted of their sins and their need for repentance. When they received forgiveness, both brothers experienced tremendous peace.

Their family was very poor. The father worked as a day laborer on a farm but earned very little. At first they were the only believers in the family but shortly after that their family members came to faith.

Once Ashish had a heavy pain attack. In the heat of the moment he promised God to serve Him for the rest of his life if he would survive the situation. A little later he read Matthew 28:18-20. It was as if Jesus spoke directly to him, giving him a burden for the people around him. Together with his brother he started sharing the gospel in surrounding villages. At some point, God provided the two brothers with a motorcycle that increased their reach.

Network of house churches

Ashish, his brother and their team have planted 42 churches in 3 states of India. They have the vision to make 2000 disciples planting house churches that will reach 200,000 people with the gospel. They founded an officially registered NGO.

Agriculture business

Ashish started an agriculture business of 7 acres of land on which he grows rice and cotton. The area in which he lives, is India’s largest wheat producer because of its land fertility and good irrigation systems. In India, agriculture is an important source of employment, national income and export earnings. Ashish and his family are well-experienced laborers in agriculture. They know how to farm very well.

Trolley business

The brother of Ashish started a trolley business. They rent out the trolley to farmers who will drive different goods to the market.
