buildchurchThe average cost of a simply constructed church building that reflects the local culture, seats 100+ people, and also includes a small shelter for its pastor is $3,500. This sounds more than reasonable to us, but for many of these young churches on the Indian subcontinent, it is a huge amount that goes far beyond their ability to raise on their own.

However, there is a solution to this problem, which our churches embrace with enthusiasm and eagerness: the believers willingly donate materials and labor, and go as far as they possibly can with the construction of their church home. At the same time, they eagerly pray and believe that God will provide the funds for the land and the building’s completion.
