Future Plans

Recording Studio:
We confidently dream to install a recording studio for the future audio-video ministries where we will have unlimited access to the latest technology and perform more vigorously for our Lord. Let us sing, sing and sing and let it reach to the souls of many.

Income Generating Activity for the needy:
This is one of the future plan which will be effectively implemented shortly. The poor people in and around Madurai require assistance to start up something and find a lively hood. " We are opening their eyes and it is our duty to show them a way to to find their livelihood and Lord will take care of the rest"
