Our Congregations

The Gampala families serve several congregations in the East Godavari District in Andrha Pradesh.  Each small village they serve shepherds the brethren whom The Father has called to Jesus Christ.  Being a Christian in India is very difficult, and ministry for the Gampala family is a 24/7 affair.

The House of God – Rajupalem A.P.

The House of God is the main congregation in the small village of Rajupalem A.P. India and is the center of the ministry of the Gampala family.  The church sits on top of Pastor John’s home and serves over 80 brethren and their families in the “kingly village” which is relegated to a slum village for the Adhi Andrha/poor and low castes.  The church was built after Hindu leaders in the village kicked the congregation out of the tiny building John and Chitti’s father  built in the early 1970sand forbid the congregation to meet there on pain of death.  A generous donation from the Scharpen Foundation enabled the new church to be constructed in 2009.  The church was opened and dedicated in March of 2010.

Continuing Growth and Expansion

We heartily follow Our Lord and Savior’s Command that we must “Go and Preach the Gospel” (Matthew 28:19-20), and we are always working to go out from beyond our villages and boundaries to reach a desperately lost people with the message of Salvation and Hope.  To do so costs us beyond our own ability to provide.  As low caste Christians, we are very, very poor and the congregations in India that are part of our spiritual family, the church often must provide sustenance for them.  We are always in need of your prayers and also any assistance you can provide to enable us to do the Great Commission.  We much welcome any love and support to help us.  You can contact Kardias Ministries for information on how to help us directly.  Their ministry ensures that 100% of all donations are sent directly to us to be used as our donors direct.  We love and appreciate our Brothers and Sisters in Yeshua, the Christ in the USA and around the world.
