The Devanahally Mission was divided as three separate units: (a) Devanahally Mission (b) Beerasandra Mission (c) Chikbalapur Mission. Each of these mission centres were led by a missionary along with a number of evangelists.

Devanahally

The financial year 2009 – 10 was a year of blessing in every aspect of the Mission activity.

God has been gracious to provide all the wants that are needed day by day for the Mission’s ongoing developments. Apart from evangelistic work which is the motto of the Mission, we have different participatory projects like Marriage Aid, Education Aid etc. Along with evangelism the empowerment of the believers through efforts such as self – employment are being encouraged.

The Medical Aid, Housing Aid and Marriage Aid are given as and when is necessary and in accordance with availability of the funds. Many of our believers were helped through the Navathy Housing Aid Scheme. This year we could even raise the financial resource for promotion of the land for landless, two families were benefited through this scheme. The Mission was blessed with the service of the evangelists M/s Thomas George, John Kumar P. S., Beena John, N. V. Wilson  and Joseph L.. Rev. Joby Varghese serves as the missionary.
