Thank you for partnering with the ministry of Transformation 1040. Funds received via General Giving will be used where most needed to support the ministry and transform lives and villages.
Educate a Child ($20 per child per month)
Bihar’s poor villages teem with needy, illiterate children. Without proper education or guidance, children often end up victims of child labor, or worse, sex trafficking. You can transform the life of a child by giving them an opportunity to attend school and hope for the future. Transformation 1040 also also provides spiritual training to the child’s family through special programming. For $20 a month, you can send a child to school with a uniform, backpack and books. Together, let’s send 200 children to school this year.
GOAL: Educate 200 children.
Water Well ($900 per well)
Transformation 1040 provides drinking water to villagers who have little to no access to clean water. Most of the diseases in Bihar are carried through contaminated water from shallow, open wells. For $900 you can provide a fresh-water well to an impoverished village. Each well is dedicated to the village, giving a church planter the opportunity to tell villagers about Jesus, the Living Water.
GOAL: Provide 30 water wells.
Women Empowerment ($225 per woman)
The majority of women in Bihar have little education and possess few marketable skills. Transformation 1040 trains and equips women to start their own micro-enterprise business, in the context of Christ-centered training. Your support of $225 provides one woman six months of training in the Bridge of Hope Sewing School and her very own pedal-powered sewing machine. Women graduate from the program not only prepared to help support their families but with a new understanding of Jesus. Approximately 40% of students enter into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus.
GOAL: Provide sewing instruction and a sewing machine to 240 women.
Transform a Village ($2,800 per village)
You can help plant a church and transform one of 45,103 villages in Bihar by partnering with us to provide holistic community development to an entire village. When you give $2,800, Transformation 1040 will equip a village with a fresh water well, literacy training for children, a bicycle for the church planter, Bibles and hymnals and a Vacation Bible School (VBS) for villagers.
GOAL: Transform 25 new villages.
Theological School Education ($150 per person)
The vision of New Theological School is to train pastors who lack theological training and church planters who are called to launch new ministries. The majority of pastors and church planters in northern India lack a bachelor's or seminary level education. Churches are growing and multiplying, but pastors lack adequate education. Theological education will aid in the founding of new churches and the growth of the churches through seminary graduates discipling others.
Our long-term goal is to send church planters to unreached people groups in North India. To see that vision fulfilled, and to better equip the pastors and church planters in theological and biblical understanding, God has already graciously provided a facility in Kerala.
Our immediate focus is to train 50 church planters and pastors who have no theological education. To cover all living and educational expenses, an annual expenditure of $100,000 is required. The initial educational effort will take approximately three years. Additional two years of support will be required as each new church planter begins a new ministry.
If you are able to mail a personal or business check to Transformation 1040, P.O. Box 951, Wheaton, IL 60187 (memo Theological school), one hundred percent of the funds will toward the project. Thank you for your partnership in this life-changing ministry in North India.
