Ministry History: In 2006, Christo and Sarah obeyed the call of God, moved to Chennai, India and planted Living God Church with just a handful of people. Gathering every Sunday, the small group outgrew the space as Christo shared the Gospel and invited others door to door. As the group of believers and seekers grew, the Church moved to several different facilities and 2 separate campuses to accommodate the growth. In 2014, as both campuses reached capacity for both members and staff, Living God Church moved to a large, 4-storey facility and merged the congregations. Today, there are more than 500 members and many fruitful facets of ministry that powerfully reach the community and see lives transformed!
