Thank you ~ for taking time to visit our web site
and for learning more about our work within rural villages of south India. India Village Care Ministries (IVCM) is a Christian organisation (registered non profitable charitable trust) with a real heart & vision to reach rural villages with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide practical care and social works.

Around 73% of people in India live in villages and as a result many of these places contain millions of people that are unreached with the Gospel and are often forgotten about. Many are living below the poverty line without proper food, accommodation, clothes and do not have access to education and medical facilities. In addition there are many thousands of orphans and semi orphans or abandoned street children.

IVCM is a relatively new organisation that is committed to holistic Christian mission and is concerned about people, including their spiritual, physical, mental, social well being, in light of the great commission of Jesus Christ and the biblical mandate given. Our primary work at this point of time is village evangelism and our secondary work is providing a vital level of social service and also working and encouraging other independent rural village pastors.


We are experiencing much blessing and seeing rapid growth in the districts we are currently working in as a result of being committed to the Lord's ministry in these areas, but as we enlarge our hearts towards this new work we realise how important it is that we seek the help and outside support of likeminded people who want to share in accomplishing these important tasks! We need to sustain the evangelism and social works we have begun in a variety of ways and so if you feel you are able to help and take seriously the task of praying and encouraging please read on and discover more about what God is doing through our ministries.

Please consider how you could participate and become involved in these exciting opportunities that we have been given at this time. We at IVCM are passionate about serving the Lord in this new mission opportunity and we need his help through his people to pursue and explore ways of coordinating our efforts as we seek mission partners.

“ This service you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you.”
…….. 2 Cor 9:12–14  


Praise ~

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples."

(1 Chronicles 16:8)

We have been blessed with 5 new pastors since October 2011, each one reaching out to a previously unreached village.


The Lord has blessed us with his abundant provision: we have purchased our own van and the orphanage is in the final phase of being built!



Projects ~

Following a successful trip in January 2013, Rod and Kym (two of our international trustees) together with Layla (one of our UK trustees) and Mike are delighted to announce that they will be heading out to India again in May 2013. 


The Lord has spoken to us powerfully about the upcoming trip, and we need your support, so please pray for the team and for the IVCM pastors during this time of planning.  Please also pray for the provision of funds for the mission trip, safety in travel (both spiritually and physically), and that the Lord would be going ahead and preparing the hearts of those we will minister to.


Following a further generous donation, we are in the process of building a small orphanage which we hope will be completed within the next few months.



Prayer ~

We have seen the Lord work in mighty ways as a result of this ministry being soaked in prayer. Please continue to pray for more sponsors and supporters for this work to continue and expand into many more needy villages. Pray for opportunities to share this ministry with other churches, and that hearts will be open to receive this message and support the work. Pray for the many poor people especially widows and orphans who need encouragement in their faith as they face regular daily struggles. Pray for our pastors as they provide pastoral care to those around them.
