“Let us rise up and build.” Then they set their hands to do this good work. Nehemiah 2:18
Greeting to you in the matchless name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Keeping the town Arakkonam ( nearly 70 km from Chennai ) in Ranipet district as our base we have been doing the Lords work under the name of “ Lord of Peace Ministries” over the last 42 years. By the grace of God we have established about 20 branches in the neighboring villages.
1) Since the year 1991, the church at arakkonam was meeting at a place called Krishnampet. It was a thatched roofed building of size 80 ft length and 25 ft width, constructed on a place which we had taken for floor rent. Sadly, in the year 2002, this facility was section fire by some anti-social elements. Since then our worship service are being held at place given to us rent free by one our believer for temporary use.
2) Our vision is to rise a new generation of leaders, and to train them in spiritual life with biblical and theological knowledge to be zealous ministers of God. Right now we have 2500 sq ft building finished up to roof (metal sheet). Interior works, infrastructure, sanitary, students residence, staff’s residents are to be constructed.
Lord of Peace ministry was started in the year 1976 and doing gospel service in 155 villages surrounded by Arakkonam Town and other younger villages to bring people from darkness into the light for life of better understanding of God for the last 42 years. We meet people like ignorant and innocent of divinity, unaware of Godliness in them and are leading rural, rustic lives, including in all sorts of unsocial and inhuman activities. We meet the people going door to door, assemble in groups under shady trees, and instill in their minds gospel truths, peaceful living and spiritual living helps them to lead a happy life. Very many people have, after our ministry work on gospel truths, and training the youths/ women folk/ ignorant people/ poor people they have become evangelist/ pastors and live the basis of biblical teachings. It is a great achievement and a boon to these people.
As we urgently need a proper place from other place to worship the Lord in freedom we are sharing this need with much burden in our hearts.
- We have our own land of 1.5 Acre, in which we are in need of worship center which can hold 1000 members.
- Infrastructure, sanitary and others facilities are required.
Theological College and Seminary:
- Right now we have 2500 sq ft building finished up to roof (metal sheet). Interior works, infrastructure, sanitary, students residence, staff’s residents are to be constructed.
- We have very small chapel in the same campus and it required Electrical connection, since we are now operating this church by renting power supply.
Kindly uphold us in your prayers. We invite you to partner with us. As Lord leads you support us generously in this church building project. Thank you.
We assure you of our prayers. We are also specifically praying both morning and evening, for those who contribute towards this project, with their names written in our prayer register. Surely the Lord will bless them His due reward Glory to God.
