Who we are
We live for the restoration of the Church. In India, Germany and worldwide. Because Jesus is worth it – because the world needs it.
For this reason we are committed to outreach and prayer, to training people and to planting and restoring churches.
We support a large Federation of Churches in India (donations) – run social and missionary projects for children, as well as women and girls (sponsorships) – help persecuted Christians (campaigns) – support missions to and from India (outreach projects) – build the Kingdom of God through prayer and worship (prayer days and prayer houses) – train people for “Church and Missions” (discipleship) – invest in existing churches and plant new churches in India, Germany and worldwide (church)
We would be very pleased to visit your church and to report on our work in person, or via Zoom. Regardless of whether it is a church service, home group, prayer group, teenagers’ group or scouts, we want to excite this generation and to motivate them to carry out the great commission which Jesus gave us – to make disciples of all nations.
Food packages against hunger
Hunger is omnipresent in India in the midst of the pandemic and no longer affects only the lower class.
With a donation of 20 euros, a family of five can get a food parcel that will ensure them at least one hot meal a day for a month.
The daily food distribution in Trichy, which had been carried out for several weeks, unfortunately had to be stopped at the end of June due to the rapid spread of virus mutants. We want to help the people, but at the same time not expose them to an increased risk of infection.
That is why we want to focus on distributing food parcels again in the coming weeks. Due to job loss, loss of earnings and inability to pay, more and more people from the middle class are slipping below the poverty line, and hunger is becoming a constant companion for them as well.
We plan to distribute 1000 food packets each in the states of Tamilnadu, Maharashtra, Bihar and Odisha this month. Due to rising oil and food prices, the cost of such a package has increased from 15 to 20 Euros.
Help defeat hunger!

Surviving in the pandemic
During the pandemic countless people have lost their job and their source of income. 30% of the population are now living beneath the poverty line. Each act of aid helps to reduce the bitter need of the poorest of the poor in India.
We are writing this blog to draw attention to the current desperate plight of those in need in India – and to show how we can help them.
Cultural training for Germany and abroad, mission school and preparation weeks, outreach to Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Nepal), internships and Profilers programme, open seminars around church and mission as well as prayer are the offers of the CIfI centre. There are also public appointments and open prayer meetings.
On request, ourstaff is happy to visit Christian churches to organise services and events, to preach or report. There is also the option of qualified cultural training in churches.
