IREF 2012

Today 3 of our church members set out to serve with IREF in Andhra Pradesh, India. 

One of the things which IREF model well is their eagerness to meet both physical and spiritual need in Jesus’ Name. 

They have already hosted a number of Gospel meetings leading to 51 baptisms so far. Our members are part of the medical team providing free healthcare clinics.

IREF is an indigenous mission, run by Indians- for Indians, and cares for thousands of children from the poorest of backgrounds.

Their mission statement is as follows:

The India Rural Evangelical Fellowship is an indigenous Indian mission dedicated to:
  • Reaching the rural population of Andhra Pradesh, South India, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Mobilising and equipping national workers to carry out evangelism and so fulfill the Great Commission
