The Lord has guided the Nandas to establish the ministry of SERVE India, which serves pastors of churches in mostly rural and tribal areas and through those churches sustains impoverished widows, children, and those suffering with the effects of leprosy. They also operate a training center near the city of Visakhapatnam.
Their pastors’ training program helps them develop healthy, growing, fruitful churches that multiply themselves into villages never before reached with the Gospel. Their churches are given support with projects such as buildings, wells, bicycles, etc.
Their vocational training program serves as an avenue for outreach to the numerous villages that surround the training center. It offers courses in teacher training, learning English, computers, agriculture, sewing, etc.
Through the local churches, the ministry also supports several children’s homes and 2 leprosy colonies. Each year medical camps are offered to treat the health needs of nearby communities.
