I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. - Phl 1:3-5 ESV

Our Mission

In keeping with the apostle Paul’s sentiment expressed in Phil. 1:5, Partners in the Gospel was a program created to raise financial support for Biblically sound Gospel preachers in India and on the African continent.  Partners in the Gospel was set up as a non-profit by Dennis Gray, Neil Vines, and Danny Spain under the oversight of the Carrollton church of Christ elders.

These three men maintain a dedicated financial account, and the funds contributed to this work are used solely for the financial support of the men who have been vetted as sound, faithful Gospel Preachers in India and on the African continent. 
The men who qualify for this support will have been determined to have a character of integrity and a willingness to work for the advancement of the Gospel of Christ by making disciples through the preaching of the Gospel and contributing to the spiritual growth of those converted to Christ through the preaching of sound doctrine.

If you want to know more about Partners in the Gospel, please complete our contact form.

Currently, the best way to support this work is by sending contributions via check to:

Partners in the Gospel
c/o Carrollton church of Christ

PO Box 31, Carrollton, GA 30012

Any contribution by an individual member of the body of Christ or by a congregation of the Lord’s Church, no matter how small, will be used to support these faithful men and their families.

Our Missionaries

Praveen Varada - Andhra Pradesh, India
Praveen Varada is a young man who is a third-generation Gospel preacher with excellent references.  He is very faithful, sound, and active in teaching and preaching the Gospel in India and has already converted many to Christ through preaching the Gospel.  He lives and preaches in Annavaram in the State of Andhra Pradesh.

Praveen visited the United States in 2023 to visit several congregations, speak to the brothers and sisters, and raise additional support for the church in Annavaram.


Boyaj Parichha was trained by a school supported by the Piedmont Road church of Christ in Atlanta, GA.  For many years the only consistent monthly monetary support he was receiving came from brother Ken Perkins of the Piedmont Road congregation. Since Brother Perkins' passing, he has not received support from America with the exception of a few small sporadic contributions to his work which have barely provided him with enough to feed his family let alone carry on the good work that he has been doing for 25 plus years. He teaches and preaches in Paralakhemundi and surrounding hill villages in the State of Odisha.

Boyaj Parichha - Odisha, India
