A film ministry looks at the future of outreach in India.

By December 3, 2003

India (MNN)—India’s people are responding heartily to a message of hope. That, in spite of anti-conversion laws sprouting up across the country. The shift means outreaches have to think about the next step.

The teams seek to tell that story of Jesus and his love in a culturally relevant way because every culture is God’s and is unique and significant.

Dayspring International’s John Gilman says their ministry doesn’t stop with the showing of their all-Indian acted film on the life of Christ. The next question is, “what’s next?” “They often ask us, ‘What can we do to be His disciple?’, and there are many opportunities there to bring someone in to teach them and show them the Scriptures and open up God’s word to them so they can have a better understanding of the power of Christ in their life to meet all of their needs.”

Gilman says their work requires the indigenous church to be ready. “Discipleship becomes a component of our ministry that is key and fundamental. We want to see Christ groups established in every village where possible.”

During the last two decades, their all-Indian acted life of Christ motion picture has been viewed by more than 70 million who live in India’s sprawling villages.
