As the Adventist Church continues to grow in India, the church supporting ministry Maranatha is working to make sure new members have education opportunities and places to worship.
The Seventh-day Adventist church is growing rapidly in India.
Over the last ten years, membership has grown from just over 100,000 to more than 1.5 million. This immense growth has created a great need for new places to worship. Adventist church leadership in India has requested the help of Maranatha Volunteers International in responding to this need.
Since 1998, Maranatha has had a continuous presence in India bringing churches and schools to the vast country. During this time, more than 1,500 churches and nine school campuses have been built all over India.
Now, the One-Day Church program is helping Maranatha continue to respond to this immense need. In a short time, 115 One-Day Churches have been built in India and an additional 125 are planned for construction in 2012.
New church members want a quality, Christian education for their children. Each day, thousands of children learn about the world around them and about the God that loves them in schools Maranatha Volunteers International have built.
In 2012, volunteers built two One-Day School campuses in the southern part of the country. Maranatha is currently organizing two additional volunteer teams to build 16 One-Day School classrooms on an existing but over-crowded campus.
