Churches in Punjab

In 2011, Evangelist Ipe connected with Thomas Cherian who was at that time a Bible School teacher in the Doon Bible School located in Dehradun in Uttarakhand in North India. Thomas Cherian was interested to partner with Ipe to teach the Pastors under the ministry. Thomas Cherian also took Ipe to meet with his parents who live in the Northern Himalayan state of Jammu & Kashmir. Thomas Cherian’s Parents run a Church in Jammu town. While Ministering in Jammu, Evangelist Ipe met with Gill who was in the army. Gill is from Fatehgarh Churian, Gurdaspur district in Punjab, and his son, Pastor Rajesh Gill and his wife, Evangelist Katherine Gill run an evangelical ministry in Gurdaspur and Amritsar areas close to the India-Pakistan border.

This meeting established a new connection for Evangelist Ipe and Sister Susie to visit Punjab and minister there. Thus started a new relationship with the state of Punjab where Mathai Outreach Ministries setup the New Hope Churches of India in Punjab under the leadership of Reverend Pastor Rajesh and Katherine Gill. They are supported by their children Nancy Masih her husband Vijay Masih, Blesson Gill and Gresson Gill besides further support from the Gill family home Church in Fatehgarh Churian. They have established over 30 stations in the region so far and the Church in Punjab has multiplied and prospered over the years with outreaches in neighboring districts.
