Our Latest Events
1. Ministry Among The Migrated – In the last year God had burdened us and the Ministries of Echo of His call to do ministry among the migrated. This primarily envisions ministry among the Odisha and Bihari language speaking people who work in the construction industry and other labour oriented industries in the metropolis of Chennai city. These migrants were often at the receiving end of society for they are victimized and abused by people. Most of them live in hapless and hopeless conditions bereft of the warmth of their community and solidarity of the people. Echo of His Call Ministries in particular remember these homeless and hopeless people in their prayers and seek ways and means to transform the lives of these people with the love and grace of Lord Jesus Christ. We meet them personally and help them understand the Love of Jesus Christ by small initiatives of prayer and support in terms of food and clothes. The prayer cells thus initiated with them slowly percolates into churches once they accept the Lord Jesus Christ and are initiated into the body of Jesus Christ. Echo of His Call Ministries not only serves the migrants but seeks to reach out to these marginalized communities back in Odisha and Bihar by taking initiatives of Church planting in these states. At the moment the Residential College trains young boys who are willing to serve the Lord in the hinterlands of Odisha and Bihar and help see the States transformed with the Love of Jesus Christ.
