The Mission

1.2 Billion   -   2.3%   -   2008

There’s a disturbing story around these numbers.

The population of India is 1.2 billion of which only 2.3% are Christians. Those numbers are even smaller for Northern India where in 2008 there was horrific violence committed against Christians. These violent acts included arson, rioting and the torching of houses, attributing to about a hundred deaths and the displacement of more than 50,000 people. It is considered the worst single outbreak of anti-Christian violence in the history of post-independence India.

 What this means is that India continues to be one of the most difficult countries to reach with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

So imagine if you could support the preaching of the Gospel in one of the most persecuted and dangerous areas of India? 

Imagine if your support allowed persecuted pastors to focus full time on preaching and pastoring instead of working in the fields 8-10 hours a day?

Finally imagine if while supporting this incredible work you could also experience a half day workshop focused on increasing sales through effective sales messaging?

YOU CAN, by attending a Messaging with a Mission workshop.



The Messaging

David Kurkjian is the principal for a consulting/training business called MasterMessaging. He has worked with companies like Polycom, Oracle and EMC in training sales professionals how to get their prospects to take action through sales conversations that are simple, unique and memorable. 

David is also passionate about missions. He had an opportunity to help equip and train 200 pastors in northeastern India a little over a year ago. He and several members from NorthGate Church of Atlanta have been invited back in March of 2013 to host another pastor’s conference. As you can imagine there is significant expense associated with travel, food, lodging for over 150 pastors.

His idea was to make his half-day workshop available in exchange for a donation that would all go directly to supporting the conference.


  • Learn how to provoke your prospects to take action.
  • Experience how to create and deliver stories that sell.
  • Discover how to use pictures to deliver your sales message in a way that your prospects can remember and retell.
  • Practice techniques designed to keep your prospects engaged throughout your entire sales conversation.
  • Apply one of the most powerful tools for overcoming objections.



NorthGate Church has partnered with and supports Iris India lead by Jonathan and Shampa Rice. As missionaries in India they lead hundreds of pastors, oversee a school for needy children and help rescue children sold into slavery. All donations will be made through NorthGate Church and sent directly to Iris India to support the pastors and their conference.

The goal is to raise $25,000 that will cover the conference, NorthGate team member’s airfare and enough money to pay 20 of the lead pastors a monthly salary for a full year so that they can devote their full time to the ministry.

The suggested beginning donation is $120, or one ticket. Each ticket, or $120, will sponsor 3 pastors for the conference. Multiple tickets can be purchased depending on the number of pastors you'll like to sponsor. Once we’ve raised enough to cover all 150 pastors for the conference, any additional tickets purchased will provide monthly wages for 3 pastors so that they can come out of the fields and focus on their churches.

*The workshops will be held from 8 am to 12 pm and we will host another on February 8th, 2013. Go here to register.

**Intradiem, formerly Knowlagent, has graciously offered to host the event.
