River of Destiny Ministries

Chennai, India

Supported since 2022

Every person counts.  We are an “out of the box” charismatic, evangelistic, missional church: more of a “go and be” rather than a “come and see” sort of church. You’d find us just an ordinary bunch of people, raring to go places for God; broken vessels whom God uses.  Like our homes, our lives are also open and transparent.  We consider every individual who walks into our church or home as God-sent. This gives us an opportunity to instil intrinsic value in them which could have been stolen during childhood, stormy circumstances or broken relationships.

Prayer Requests:

  • Growth ,maturity in leaders.
  • Physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of leaders.
  • Strengthening, equipping of leaders and their wives.
  • Finances to enable an increase in the ministry impact.
  • To always seek to be effective in reaching non-Christians through missional and Gospel presentations.

       Slavery is illegal almost everywhere. But millions of men, women and children are trapped in modern-day slavery around the world. In India, entire families are enslaved in labor trafficking in brick kilns, rice mills, and garment factories working up to 20 hours a day. In the Dominican Republic, women and children are lured into sex trafficking with promises of school or a good-paying job. In the Philippines, children as young as two are sexually abused live for anyone in the world to watch through online sexual exploitation of children.  We work tireless to end trafficking and slavery.
