GLOBAL MISSION STATEMENT

Going forth dependent on the Holy Spirit, gathering with all nations for the Father's glory,

and growing in the love of the Son with our global neighbors. 

WHY INDIA?

Just before re-starting Rose City Church, Pastor Dan felt called to mission in India. Hearing the stories of persecuted Christians in India deeply touched his heart. After praying for India for four years, the Lord opened the door in 2016 for a small team to go and witness God's ministry there to families, widows, orphans, and persecuted Christians in both villages and cities. The time we spent there revealed the crucial need to pray for, stand alongside and support those who have truly given everything for the Gospel.

Rose City Church is called to be a neighborhood church. In our day and age of globalization that means we are connected to both local and global neighbors. On this trip we met amazing people who were fully devoted to following Jesus and expanding God's kingdom. We were beyond blessed by what we witnessed and by the friendships we formed. This vision trip prepared us to partner with our new friends and global neighbors in India. 

We look forward to many more trips ahead to help care for our neighbors in India. 

We hope you will consider partnering with us in supporting missions in India.

 

handloom project in Miraj

The Handloom Project was founded by the Dayanand Foundation to provide a livelihood for women affected by leprosy in the city of Miraj. The women hand craft messenger bags, placements, bookmarks, and much more. The sale of these beautifully weaved items restores the lives of women who once were outcast.  


DAY CARE Centre in Mumbai

The Western India Conference of the Free Methodist Church operates a day care for children in the slums of Mumbai. Since 1991, the poorest children of Mumbai have been given a place to learn about Jesus and the importance of education for their future. With your support, these children will find schools to attend and be given an opportunity for empowerment and growth.


AGAPE CENTre in Hyderabad

First formed under Christian Outreach Uplifting New Tribes (COUNT) and then later with the Agape Conference of the FMC, the Agape Centre provides holistic care for tribal children, orphans, students, day workers, and church planters.

Western India Conference in Mumbai
