 100,000 Churches for India

A few weeks ago I met this amazing man, Pastor Joshua Vijayakumar.  God has given him the vision to plant 100,000 churches in India.  Currently 2,500 churches have already started.  Listening to his story and how these churches are coming about really stirred my heart.  It only takes $60 a month to support a pastor, and all of his needs, for a month.
So for my next marathon I want to be a part of this amazing movement happening in India.  I want to raise funds to support at least one (or maybe 5) pastor(s) for an entire year.  Can you help me reach this goal?

I will be running the Columbia Gorge Marathon in October, in honor of Pastor Vijayakumar’s ministry, Evangelical Church Growth Mission in Madurai, Tamilnadu, India.  If you would like to support this effort you can do so by clicking the donation button below.  Please understand, this is a ministry not based in the U.S. so you will not be able to claim it on your taxes.  Pastor Joshua also has very limited ways of receiving the money from the U.S. so donations will be made into a paypal account and then the total raised by October 15, 2013 will be sent (wired) to him.  I know this is not the traditional way I usually fundraise, and their seem to be many obstacles getting the money there, but I hope this will not stop you for supporting this great ministry.

Other ways you can support this ministry is to go to India and teach in their seminary or to pray for them.  Please pray how God would want to use you.
