The Chapel is rooted in the belief that Christ called us not only to believe, but to go and tell our story to others—even if the “others” live halfway around the globe.
We want to share what Christ has done in our lives with every nation and people group, and we support a large family of missionaries in dozens of countries around the world who are working to see this happen. In fact, more than one-quarter of our annual budget is directed to overseas missions.
Our partners at the Dalit Freedom Network have announced a new matching grant for this spring to assist unsponsored children in their schools in India. Their Fresh Start Matching Challenge will last until the $175,000 donated by an anonymous donor has been matched. Any funds that you donate will be doubled dollar for dollar. A $10 gift becomes $20, a $50 gift becomes $100 and so forth.
Did you know that there are 12,000 unsponsored children in Dalit Education Centers that DFN has started throughout India?
This number includes many children in the five schools The Chapel has helped to start in northwest India. Any funds donated through The Chapel over the next 30 days will be targeted to help unsponsored children in those five schools where we are concentrating our efforts.
Prayerfully consider donating above and beyond your regular offering to help these children. Please mark your donation envelope: “DFN Fresh Start Challenge Grant” and place it in the offering basket or mail it to the Finance Dept. at The Chapel. Thank you!
Unreached People Groups
We are most focused on reaching unreached people groups. Although all people are equally lost, not all people are equally unreached. Those living in unreached areas of the world have little or no opportunity to find the good news.
Our highest priority, then, should be the nearly two billion people of the world who have never had anyone share the gospel with them.

Fresh Passion: Mozambique and India
Besides prioritizing unreached people groups, we are currently making extra-special efforts in two specific areas as part of a project called Fresh Passion.
Fresh Passion includes our work with the “untouchable” Dalit people of India and the AIDS-stricken country of Mozambique, Africa.
