International Sanctuary Ministries, Inc. 

(AKA Sanctuary Home for Children), or just "Sanctuary Ministries," as we generally call it, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to show God's love in southern India.  


Through our leadership team in India, we work with more than a hundred congregations of Christians who are deemed as low in caste by Indian society, but who we see as our brothers and sisters in Christ.  At our core, we help orphans and widows, spread the gospel and the love of Christ to those who are lost, and help support the congregations of Christians. This mission is manifest in various ways, but the overriding objective is to bring glory to God, as He shows us how. and as He gives us opportunity.

You can help!  We would be extremely honored and blessed if you would. You can partner with us as we help orphans, widows, people with leprosy, support local evangelists and ministers, and as we help congregations in need. You can join us as we teach and feed children in the slum, as we provide fresh water to poor villages.  You can extend the blessings that God has given to you, passing them on to many less fortunate, but equally our Christian family.

Our overhead costs are minimal. Nobody in the US draws a salary or gets paid, because we want as much of the money we raise as possible to go directly to the work in India. If you give to a specific cause, 100% of what we receive will go to India for that purpose.

New Way to Support Ministers in India!

If you have wanted to support spreading the gospel in India, but $200 a month to sponsor an evangelist is not feasible, we have a new option.  Give any amount (one-time or monthly), and your donation will be used to support local Indian ministers in their efforts.

Money collected will be allocated to ministers with the greatest need, as evaluated by our trusted team in India.

Local ministers give so much to their congregations, while still having to work menial jobs such as laboring in the fields to support their families. These ministers help widows, feed children, and try to meet other needs of their congregations while reaching out to their communities with the life-changing message of the gospel. Many of these ministers are struggling more than we know, but they continue steadfastly in their devotion to the Lord's work.
