The India Ministry conducted by CTO is a year-round effort to better equip and encourage pastors in India who have minimal opportunities to receive pastoral and biblical training and on their own. We also provide financial support to assist pastors in need, as well as help with health and building needs when possible.
Our Marriage and Family Ministries at CTO consist of mentoring, training, and providing educational materials. We have a yearly weekend retreat for couples. We also speak at other marriage retreats when invited. Many individuals, families, teens and marriages receive support as part of our ministry. We provide free education through a book on marriage, many articles, and blogs. Articles focus on marriage, men’s issues, women’s struggles, raising children and teens, emotional and sexual issues and others. Free training is available through email or in person. Our website includes many articles and much information is available.
We approach this from a Biblical, evangelical perspective. We have a prayer ministry for those who send in requests and a referral list for those who want to contact someone who lives in their area. We provide free education about spiritual warfare through books, articles, and regular blogs. Our website provides much information for those who want to learn more about this important subject.
This ministry centers around a week-long Bible conference for teens and college students interested in learning to better understand, defend and share their faith. There are group teaching sessions, separate group sessions for boys and girls, advanced and beginner classes. The week is filled with worship, fellowship, and group and individual relationship-building activities.
