Central India Christian Mission
Ajai and Indu Lall, third-generation Christians from India, established Central India Christian Mission (CICM) in December 1982. It was their vision and goal to establish a Mission center in their homeland with the focus of evangelism, church planting and leadership training. CICM has now grown to a team of over 550 full-time coworkers. The focus of CICM continues to be evangelism, church planting and leadership training. The CICM evangelists have planted almost 600 churches where more than 160,000 baptized believers regularly worship and serve. Through Central India Biblical Academy the Mission trains at least 50 new evangelists each year.
The Literature and Publications ministry directly supports the evangelistic ministries of the Mission by providing New Testaments, Bibles, gospel tracts, and other Christian literature and books in the Hindi language.
CICM offers medical care through the 35-bed Mission hospital, mother and childcare center and dental clinic in Damoh. The 15-bed Kansa village clinic serves an area reaching about 50 villages and is located about one hour from the Mission center in Damoh. Medical camps are held in other areas on a regular basis. Each month the medical team provides compassionate care to about 4,000 patients, offering hope and healing for their medical problems as well as sharing the story of Jesus, who offers spiritual healing and eternal life.
River Oaks Christian Church partners with Central India Christian Mission by supporting two local evangelists, Brothers Bispo Namro and R.N. Banjare.
