20 Years of getting Comfortable & Intentional about Including Internationals

Having gone to India over 50 times, Pastor Kevin, of Global Hope India shares insights that God has showed him and how it is applicable to reach any people group. Get to know the heart and vision that God gave Pastor Kevin over 20 years ago.

Living the Dream is based off of Revelation 7:9-12. That’s the dream we are working toward. To help the local church reach every tribe, nation, and tongue with the Gospel.

Get to Know Pastor Kevin: Kevin shares the experience of his first mission’s trip where he learned that God had taken him to India to change his life.

21 years ago, if you wanted to reach internationals you would have to pack your bags, get a passport, and fly across the world. Now God has moved millions of internationals into our neighborhoods and communities.

Know your numbers:

  • Indians are quickly becoming one of the largest communities in the Triangle area.
  • The Triangle cricket association has over 100 teams involving more than 1500 players.
  • The Triangle area of North Carolina, Houston, New York, New Jersey, San Francisco has a large population of Indians
  • Our heart is not just for the people of India but all internationals

Our nation has a lot of racial tension and tension about immigration. Whichever side of the debate you are on the call has been given to the local Church to reach it’s community.

We discuss future episodes and themes we will cover in this podcast.
