India Church Planting Ministry

India Church Growth Mission (ICGM) was founded in 1978 by Jawahar Gnaniah to train and equip church planters in the villages of India, beginning in his home state of Tamil Nadu.  Currently there are nearly 300 staff working in mission fields, villages, and office and administration.  ICGM has trained many church planters and evangelists, who have seen more than 8,000 people become followers of Jesus, mostly from Hindu backgrounds.

Jawahar remains involved through regular visits to India, mentoring of leaders in the ministry and other support offered through Global Friends Network.
