The Opening of Kalvapalli Church

Kavlapalli Church was born out of a family’s desire to reach a neighboring village with the Gospel.

As we shared last February, Pastor Madhu Naik lived in a neighboring town with his wife and two young children when he felt called by God to go to a nearby village called Kalvapalli. He began sharing the Good News with villagers, and in a short amount of time dozens of people confessed that Jesus is Lord. A church quickly grew around this confession, and before long there were more than 40 people worshipping Jesus every Sunday, all of them first generation Christians.

When it became clear that the congregation would need its own building, Madhu approached us and asked for financial assistance so that he could begin building a church in the village. Moved by his story and his faithfulness, we quickly gave Madhu’s project the green light, and today a church is now standing in a community that was previously unreached.

Help us build churches in India.

The growth of our church planting ministry has created an extraordinary opportunity to give towards the building of new churches. Typically, the pastor oversees construction of the building, and the congregation makes a small but sacrificial contribution towards the project. We are then able to provide a generous grant so that building materials can be purchased and construction can commence. With dozens of churches waiting to be built, your tax-deductible donation to the Church Building Support fund can make a tremendous difference on the ground.


Since 1992 Vision Nationals has been planting churches, training nationals, and caring for India’s most vulnerable. Donations to support our work are greatly appreciated. All gifts are tax-deductible and can be designated to the ministry, fund, or project of your choice.
