DIRECTORY OF BRETHREN ASSEMBLIES IN INDIA

As per an estimate released at the GFTI Conference (Oct 2016), we have 3,815 Assemblies and 2,434 Commended Workers among 1.25 billion people in India. Many of our Assemblies in the remote and often hostile areas of the North, Central and Eastern parts of India are struggling to make ends meet. The needs are overwhelming.

In order to fulfil our mandate to serve the assemblies, SAI Members and Representatives are requested to approach the Assemblies and compile the State, District-wise data. Assembly leaders are also requested to pass on the relevant information about any new &/or less known Assemblies or Gatherings in their Areas / Regions which might not be known otherwise, so that the proposed Directory will be complete and totally comprehensive in nature. SAI will collect, compile and publish the details in the form of a “Directory of Brethren Assemblies in India”. This resource tool will give us access to vital, relevant information enabling us to provide timely and relevant services to the assemblies.

As you are aware, many of our Assemblies are situated in the remote areas of the North, Central and Eastern parts of India and are struggling to make two ends meet. When we went into the depth of the varied problems faced by some of these Assemblies in these areas, we were startled to realize that we do not possess even a basic information about a large number of these Believers / Evangelists / Gatherings which are in existance in the isolated and backward areas of the country.

In retrospect, the Lord has given us a special burden in this regard with respect to these Rural Assemblies. Hence, we thought it would prove useful to collect necessary data with respect to the totality of all our Assemblies housed all over India and bring out an all exhaustive Directory, as the 1998 SAI Directory has now become almost obsolete.

To go about this task, we have decided to gather information through the Members / Representatives of SAI who are based in the various States/ Regions and publish a new Directory with the Names, Addresses and other details of our Assemblies and Institutions housed in the various States of our Country. Under this statistics, we would like to receive the details of our Assemblies which are gathering in various homes / rental places / own buildings, irrespective of the fact that the Assembly property is registered with SAI or not. After the receipt of the complete authentic information, we would go ahead with the publication of this Directory which will also be quite useful for our travelling brethren and for prayer purposes as well. Such a large scale exercise will only be possible with the whole-hearted help, support and physical assistance of the Believers / Elders / Evangelists of our Assemblies in India.

For the above purpose, the SAI Members / Representatives will approach the Assemblies and compile the data State / Region wise. The leadership of our Assemblies are also requested to pass on the relevant information about any new / less known Assemblies / Gatherings in their Areas / Regions which might not have been known otherwise, so that the proposed Directory will be complete and totally comprehensive in nature.
