MANGAL GRAM YOJANA
Nation Building Through the Church
God’s Commission to God’s People
“Seek the peace and prosperity of the ‘place’ to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7
What is Mangal Gram Yojana?
The MGY Project is about envisioning, training, equipping and mobilizing local churches to get involved in the work of Nation Building at the level of villages and communities where the local churches are located. We intend to reach out to the churches in each of 36 Districts consisting of 358 Talukas of the State with our training programs and encourage these churches in to activities of social and moral transformation of people. So that they contribute in creating clean environment, personal and family hygiene and harmonious relationships among communities.
How it Functions?
Under the direction of the State Coordinator 7 Regional Coordinators oversee the work in their respective regions that are made of five districts each. Regional Coordinators work in close association with the 36 District Leaders, mainly the District Leaders of their respective regions. And the District Leaders closely work in association with the Taluka Leaders of their respective Maha Harvest Network Project: ‘Mangal Gram Yojana’ 2 Districts. Through this infrastructure we reach every church in every district and taluka with the training programs of Mangal Gram Yojana.
MGY Training Conferences
Mangal Gram Yojana Project operates at various levels, first of all every two years we conduct envisioning conferences at State level primarily to envision the leaders of the churches
Secondly the same conferences are repeated in every region
Thirdly, the same conference is again repeated at the District levels where the focus is on Church members,
Thus every local church is trained, equipped, and mobilized to implement the Mangal Gram Yojana Project in their respective village.
