Please join me in praying for Shalom Faith Ministries in Odisha, India. I recently connected on LinkedIn with Surendra Kimbar, ministry director. Here are their vision and mission as they appear on their website.


Our Vision:

We seek to make followers of Jesus Christ who love God, love people, and change the world.

Love God

Love People

Impact the World

We believe the most important thing in life is to love God with all of who we are and to grow in our relationship with Him. People need to know this. We desire for people everywhere to come to know and love God through the life changing power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then to glorify Him with their lives.

We do have vision to build Bible College where many called and chosen people can come and train for the work of Jesus Christ.

We do have vision to build homes for homeless, destitutes, poor children, Old age and Mentally challenged people.

We do have vision to plant Churches where there are no churches.

Our Mission:

Make Disciples: We seek to Make Disciples by living as Sent Missionaries and Planting the Gospel from here to the ends of the earth. Jesus has given a mission to His church. We believe this is not only the mission of The SFM, but also the mission of every church (Every single saved soul). We are committed to this being the main work for us as a local church. Everything we pursue must support this mission.

Send Missionaries: We are called to live as missionaries to share the message and the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbours, in our community, and beyond our borders.

Plant the Gospel: We are called to plant the Gospel wherever we go as disciples. Our desire is that would happen locally and result in more campuses and churches planted in our area; and globally and result in churches planted to the ends of the earth.

At The Shalom Faith Ministries we desire to help people become followers of Jesus.

Two specific needs expressed by Surendra:

  • a new roof
  • construction of church multipurpose hall
