“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?” James 2:14

The sub continent of India has a growing population of 1.3 billion people, the majority of which are living in impoverished destitution with poor water quality, bare sustenance diets, lack of education, hygiene and access to any form of medical or dental care. Since our founding in 2000, Building for Him India has been determined to make a lasting impact in the country of India. To that end, Building for Him India has built a children’s home, which currently houses, clothes, educates and cares for the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of 52 children. In addition to our children’s home we currently are building a dental clinic and a community hospital. Building for Him India regularly hosts several other outreaches which serve to meet the various needs of the surrounding community.  As a result of these efforts, children who would have otherwise grown up on the street are instead being raised in a safe environment where they have been given the opportunity to thrive. 17 graduates from our children’s home are now enrolled in universities across India. As it says in Acts 20:35, “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

"Because I rescued the poor who cried for help and the fatherless who none to assist them"

Job 29:12

Our Mission:

A Vision That Brings Healing  to the Most Vulnerable Ones in India 

“I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you.”

John 14:18

When Building for Him India was established we felt a calling to provide food, housing, medical care and spiritual guidance to those living in some of the poorest areas of India. We still feel that calling today. In an effort to increase our sphere of influence and to further our own organic efforts, Building for Him India partners with local pastors and churches in India and around the world to ensure we accomplish the mission. We know we can do more. If you are interested in partnering with us to fulfill our mission in India please reach out through the contact information provided on this site.

Getting Involved with Building for Him India

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”  Proverbs 23:10

At Building for Him India, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in India. We need to finish the hospital, enlarge the children’s home to facilitate the housing of more children, expand our staff to provide more services for the children, begin a scholarship fund to assist our graduates in paying for college and increase our efforts in clothing and feeding the local communities. All of this of course requires funding. Through partnership and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in all these areas. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support by joining us and providing hands on help by making a tax deductible contribution.

The Dream

A Vision That Became a Reality

As a result of a dream that Pastor Joe had in 2005 Building for Him India was founded. In the dream Pastor Joe literally saw a building that was surrounding a white wall with a hole in it. Sitting in the hole were 3 children and behind them there was a group of large eyes looking out at him when he heard a voice say “come help us”. The following day he shared the dream in a church that he had helped plant in CT when an Indian woman who was visiting the congregation came forward to proclaim that he did not have a dream but he had a vision of a real children’s home that her father had established in southern India years prior. Through a series of miraculous events over the following week an opportunity opened up for him to go to India in pursuit of the mission to help the children he saw in the dream. Since its founding, Building for Him India has been established as a nationally recognized and registered Christian Ministry in India. Building for Him: India has been able to expand the children’s home, constructed a church building, and is in the final stages of construction of a regional medical center and dental facility. Today over 300 Indian churches are affiliated with the Building for Him: India network and thousands of Indian men, women and children have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior through various outreaches of this ministry. Building for Him: India continues to provide housing, clothing, education, medical care and spiritual guidance for children being raised in the children’s home in addition to ongoing community outreaches through the provision of meals, clothing, medical and dental care.
