The India Mission

Welcome

 

The work in India has produced over 2,000,000 baptisms, has built schools, clinics, and church buildings, preachers' training, publications and bibles, Lectures and Studies, Women's programs and Foster homes, even Gospel Films to be used in Conversion.

Jerris has been involved with the team that worked to produced all of this. Jerris first teamed up with Ron Clayton in 1987. The autonomous Team meets in Hydrabad to discuss shared goals. They discuss the statistics that are kept on the India Church of Christ and work on common goals.

Jerris has been a preacher, evangelist, and missionary for many years. Originally from Snyder, Texas Jerris N. Bullard graduated from Lubbock Christian University, Abilene Christian University, and Sunset School of Preaching. He has preached in Texas, Pennsylvania, and spent 11 years in Great Falls, Virginia. In 1985, he became a full-time missionary to India under the oversight of the Elders at the Manassas, Virginia Church of Christ. Jerris is married to Juanita, who is originally from Baltimore. They have both completed numerous mission journeys to India; by 2008 Jerris had made 51 and Juanita 20 mission trips to India.

    Two million baptisms reveal India as 'greatest restoration movement of our time'

    These numbers are possible because India is a huge country with more than 1 billion people. Today one of every six people in the world lives in India

    Whom shall we send

    KAKINADA, INDIA - India’s missionaries train here.

    They come to the Kakinada School of Preaching from across India — including Bihar and Orissa states, where Christians routinely suffer persecution. Some bear the light skin and Asian features of Mainipur state in India’s far east. A few are from Myanmar, a nation in Southeast Asia where religious gatherings often are restricted or prohibited.

  • The Dharoor Experience

    dharoor

    Every year for the past 85 years or so, the Methodists from Hyderabad and surrounding districts have conducted a huge camp meeting near Dharoor (a small village in Ranga Reddy District of Andhra Pradesh). This camp meeting is always in November, and is held in a big open field. It has grown from 10,000 in the inaugural year to about 10 lakhs today (1 lakh=100,000). [This is one million people in attendance.] I went this year to see what was going on. I will tell you why.

How many church members in India?

Counting

Counting isn't easy

A trip to Chennai, in southeastern India, changed everything Dyron Daughrity knew about carpooling. The native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, saw five people decide to put on Christ in baptism after a Sunday service in early February. Many more wanted to accompany them to the water.

INDIAN SPICE

Indiaspice350

To everything there is a season” (Eccl 3:1-8). “A time to be born—a time to die,a time to  plant—a time to pluck what is planted,a time to gain—a time to lose…a time to keep silence—a  time to speak.”God made every thing beautiful in its TIME. A multi-national company in the USA works during the day & at night turns over its work to India. In this way the company is working around the clock. God gave 24 hours each day for everyone—& if you don’t do the important things while you have the time, you may live to regret it.

Report - January 2009

img 1281581876 965 lgThe old year has passed away, and the New Year 2009 has come. The old was filled with great challenges. Among those were unrelenting economic losses and, since August to the present time, widespread and intense persecution of our brethren in India.
With all the troubles before us many have asked, "Do you plan to return to India?" We have consulted with numerous brethren, both in India and here at home, to help us reach an answer to the question. Elders from a host of congregations—especially our Overseers in Manassas—have advised us and made prayer to God in search of an answer. The risk factor has increased, but it is felt we are likely to fare well if we should choose to return as scheduled on January 22nd. The decision has been made. We choose to return to India as scheduled with the blessings of our Elders.
 

Report -December 2010

Dear Brethren,

The sand, it seems, pours faster through the glass now than I remember.  I once had a wall plaque that humorously said, "The hurrier I go; the behinder I get."  I must content myself with plodding, but I can plod about as well as anyone I know. 

Juanita and I had wanted to see all of our supporters this Fall, but we were unable to reach everyone.  In fact, we missed several...mostly in Texas and Oklahoma...a few in Indiana and Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, one in Florida, one in Arkansas, and three in Tennessee.  We look forward to seeing all of you as quickly as we can following our Winter-Spring mission to India.  Please accept our apologies...know how much we love you...and how we long to see each one of you.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
