Church Planter, Konkani of Goa, India

The Call

AS/IK-02 and AS/IK-03 Church Planter – Workers needed: Two units are needed to start a church planting movement among the Konkani speakers of Goa. The approach used in cultivating friendships and making disciples will depend on the gifts and talents of the individuals God is calling, and may involve some level of work in the health care field, in a tourist related area, or in graphic arts and promotions.

The People

By nature the people of Goa are warm, easygoing, and large-hearted. They live life in style and at a leisurely pace. The majority of the population is Hindu (65%), then Catholic (30%), then the remaining 5% other religions.

The Project

Currently the Adventist church has two English middle schools associated with two churches in the English language and two churches in other Indian languages in Goa; but there is no church in Konkani, the mother tongue of the people of this state. Missionaries are needed to plant the seeds for this much-needed church and utilize their various talents to reach the community. To learn more, view the project page for Goans of India
