River has partnered with Mission India to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in 3 specific ways.

#1 - Church Planters...  Church planters are funded for a two year period ($2500 total cost) as they learn in class room settings and supervised field work to start their own churches.  Nearly all church planters have started 2 church in this two year period and after 5 years have established 5 churches.

#2 - Children's Bible school...  Bible schools last for 10 days in which children learn songs, games, Bible stories, prayer and discipleship.  This is also a humintarian effort since the misnistry also teaches children how to bath, wash hands before meal preparation, etc...

#3 - Adult Literacy Program... 2 hours per night, 5 nights a week for one year provides students wtih a 5th grade equivalent education in reading, writing and math.  One of the programs great successes is to teach women who in turn teach their villages.  There are well over 300 million illiterate adults in India.

River raises funds two ways... individual giving and Leadership Training days for churches.

Stats for River thus far...

#1 - Church Planters - 4 (all have started 2 churches each - we anticipate more in the future)

#2 - Children's Bible school - 4000+

#3 - Adult Literacy Program - 65 women

All individual contributions go directly to India for ministry... over 50% of all Training Days go to India for ministry.
