Why This Experience?

Why? With well over 1.2 billion people, India is among the largest, poorest, neediest, and most undeveloped countries in the world.

We believe 2021 to be the year of CONNECTION. It’s our mission at GHI to provide more access to the gospel in India. We also believe God is going to use technology to allow individuals who couldn’t go on GHI trips to be able to participate like never before!

Why? Because everyone deserves access to the Gospel and there are a LOT of people (over 1 billion) in India who haven’t heard it!

Sample Team Schedule

The time difference between USA and India means the ideal program time in India falls between 11pm EST and 10am EST therefore most virtual mission teams are for 3 days and include a long break in the middle of the night to rest. Final schedules are set by YOU, your team, and the Indian partner so decide what works for you and we will work to accommodate your schedule. Here’s a sample schedule:

Sample Team Schedule

$3,000 Team Budget

Makes a significant investment for the Indian partner for example: 650 Bibles, Church Construction, Water Projects, Christmas Outreach, VBS Outreach, Medical Supplies, Pastor Support, etc

  • 3 members give/collect $1,000 each
  • 6 members give/collect $500 each
  • 10 members give/collect $300 each
  • 30 members give/collect $100 each
  • You get the picture

What you Should Expect

Team members must be able to join a secured video call on Zoom using their smart phone or computer.

Pray:  Now, during, and after for your team, your Indian partner, the internet to be stable, and for success of your virtual mission event in India.

Give:  God your time, talents, and treasures and work together to give/collect the team budget which makes a significant investment for the Indian partner.

Go:  Commit to go to India virtually. You can’t walk literally through the gates of the partner’s ministry, but you can and should go to India in your mind, heart, and soul. Learn all you can about India. Ask God to bond you together as forever friends with the people of India.

Please note, India (IST) is 9.5 hours head of America’s East Coast (EST). You should expect to be up early or late, depending on when the virtual event is scheduled to take place. You’ll know ahead of time and it will totally be worth adjusting your sleep schedule!

Types of Programs

Programs consist of anything and everything that can be done on Zoom! Programs are set by YOU, your team, and the Indian partner so let us know your willingness and you have to offer and we will work to match that with the needs of one of our partners in India. Here’s a few ideas in alpha order:
