Christian Mission of South India

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

– Matthew 6:25-27

Mission Trips


Lydia Abbott, CMSI’s Mission Representative, has made multiple trips to India, usually in late January. Several Board Members, Robert Abbott, Fred Banta, and Danny Bowen have also made separate trips to the field to evaluate ministries, encourage the people and preacher families performing the ministries, and determine the most pressing needs of the organization. If you are interested in travelling to India with a CMSI representative, please contact Forwarding Agent Danny Bowen at drbowen@barthelectric.com. Lydia Abbott, an accomplished gospel music singer in both Spanish and English may be able to put on a musical concert at your church to help you raise funds.
