Mission India

Our Vision
Making Disciples to Transform India for Christ.

Our Mission
To assist Indian churches and indigenous mission agencies in planting
reproducing churches in a systematic and measurable way.


Mission India works exclusively in India.

India's 1.2 billion people represent one of the most responsive audiences to the Gospel in recent history. And as India's people embrace new life in Jesus, they are eager to join with us in obeying God's call to "go and make disciples."

Mission India, together with our ministry partners, is radiating the love of Christ to India's invisible and too-often ignored.

Mission India is equipping India's believers.

God is raising up ordinary men and women to serve as dynamic local leaders. They are carrying the Gospel's message of hope into remote jungle villages, impoverished rural communities, and urban slums.

Mission India provides these dedicated believers with essential training and materials to share the Gospel and plant churches through our 3 core programs:

Mission India has 30+ years of experience.

We have over 30 years of experience partnering together with Indian believers. Our ministry partners represent the finest, most respected mission-minded groups throughout India. Our Statement of Faith is based on solid, mainline Christian traditions.

Mission India believes in the importance of accountability to our supporters and our God as we work to fulfill our vision of "India Transformed by Christ."

Meet Your Host, Chris

Your Tour Guide: Chris Michaels

  • 37 years old
  • Pastor in suburban Washington, D.C.
  • Married with an 8-year-old daughter, adopted from the Philippines, and 1-year-old twin daughters!
  • Favorite word: "Fantastic!"

Chris says Hosea 2:23 is the Bible verse that resonates with him about India: "'I will say to those called 'Not my people,' 'You are my people'; and they will say, 'You are my God.'"

"Until recent history, the people of India didn't know the Lord - they were not His people - but now they are the people of God! I am excited to tell the story of the love God has for India and how He is making them His people."

As a dad, Chris is thrilled to be helping families discover God's heart for the children of India.

"God thinks globally and eternally. His love for people goes far outside the borders of our own home, our school, our families, and our country. I tell my daughter that people knowing Jesus is the most important thing in the world."

Chris says God used his experience in India to open his eyes and heart to the people of India in amazing ways.

"Going to India and seeing how God is working there has impacted my life forever. I was able to meet people whose stories and testimonies have honestly changed my life."

"No one had a bigger impact on me than a man named Guna. You'll have to wait until episode 8 to meet him! He is such an incredible example of what happens when you dedicate your life to Christ and seek to visibly impact the Kingdom of God. If Guna can do it, I can do it."

If Chris could bring home one idea from his journey across India to introduce in the U.S., what would it be?

"The amazing hospitality. From people sharing what little food they had to their smiling faces, that's what I think we need more of here."

What Others are Saying

Thousands of families have already taken the journey! Check out what people are saying about their experience with My Passport to India...

Lori in Pennsylvania

"I want to thank you for the wonderful Passport to India videos. My son loves watching them over and over again...I explained to him that many people in India don't know God. He told me that we needed to stop and pray that the people in India know God. And I watched, with tears in my eyes, as my 4-year-old folded his hands and prayed to God that the people of India would come to know Him. I want to thank you for helping me plant these wonderful seeds in my children."

Jennifer in Michigan

"Once again you have opened my children's eyes and hearts to the deep need of others.

I am so thankful for the extra benefit of the videos. My children look forward to them and can't wait to see what Chris and Justin will be doing that day! My four-year-old daughter [pictured at right] asks to watch them over and over and over!

What is even more important is that these videos are bringing life in India to the forefront. My children are seeing destitution, sadness, pain, lost souls, and fear. They are seeing children their ages being bold for Jesus Christ. What an awesome testimony of the love and power of our Savior. It is opening their hearts and minds. And in the process helping them to desire to find ways to give MORE!"

Marie in Florida

"I just wanted to share how thankful I am for this program. I appreciate how easy you have made it for me to teach my children about missions and other countries. I love the links with devotional information and children's stories. I am so glad I signed up for this. It is already a very enriching experience for my entire family and we just started. I almost couldn't finish today's video because I was crying. The videos have given my children the first hand experience I couldn't have provided for them on my own."

Shana in Wisconsin

My daughters did many extra chores and took on a project in order to raise money for this cause. My 7 year old daughter made and sold checkbook covers to friends and family. She gave all proceeds to [Mission India] and elicited a few random donations as well! This has been an inspirational learning opportunity for the whole family. Thank you for the chance to bless others and for lessons my children will never forget.

Misty in Michigan

My girls [Rachael (11), Rebecca (8), Sarah (6), pictured at right with mom Misty and Paityn (1)] filled the suitcase all by themselves, doing extra chores for their grandparents and even giving money from the tooth fairy. We learned a lot about India and had fun!

Christy in Florida

Thank you for sharing about India with our family. We enjoyed going on the trip with Chris and were challenged to be thankful for our overly blessed lives and continue to pray for people in India. Thank you for your excellent job in presenting this.
