An important aspect of REAP’s strategy is to align social missions with church plants, which goes hand-in-hand.
“We have found that this approach accelerates church growth”, comments Dr. Jay. “For example our South India Medical Missions program was setup in 2003 when the allied church plant was just 20 members. By 2010, it’s a self-supporting, vibrant church with over 100 members. Praise the LORD.”
Social missions programs include; Medical, Education, Disaster Relief and Homes for Abandoned Children. Here’s a sample of REAP social missions: The children at REAP’s Springbud’s home in NE India are loved, educated and have hope of a better tomorrow.
