RIMI’s mission is to help in nation-building through transformational community development programs in South Asia and around the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, especially the poor and marginalized.
The three key program areas are: (1) Evangelism and Church Planting, (2) Leadership Development, and (3) Compassion Ministries. These programs are primarily delivered through Mission India, a non-profit organization based in Nagpur, India, that was also established by Dr. Lukos. Mission India operates Mission India Theological Seminary (MITS) and oversees a network of over 1,500 indigenous missionaries, 30 Bible schools, and cares for over 1,000 children.
We are involved in improving health awareness through various medical training seminars and a hospital in Nagpur. Our dream for the hospital is a 100-bed facility with in-patient and out-patient services and a nursing school. We are also establishing village English medium schools, providing employment opportunities through economic empowerment, and providing vocational training for poor and marginalized people. The goal of these programs is to transform communities and to give hope for all people.
This year about 600 students will be trained to become tomorrow’s influential leaders for transforming South Asia and Beyond.
