Kumhar (Sikh traditions) in India

If you ever buy anything made from ceramics in India, you will probably be buying from someone from the Kumhar community who can be either Hindu or Sikh. The Sikhs among them live primarily in Punjab, where there is a Sikh majority. Many still work in their traditional occupation of creating and producing pottery and ceramics. They are faithful to the Sikh code of conduct, established by the teaching of ten Sikh gurus. This includes recognizing that there is one divine light that is manifest in all things, mediating, reading or reciting daily prayers as written in their holy book known as the Guru Granth. They give to those in need.

Ministry Obstacles

Kumhars, like other Sikhs, are devoted to their spiritual way of life and community. The majority do not desire to change. They are resistant to Christians and Muslims as they believe they have the knowledge of the true light of god.

Outreach Ideas

Followers of Christ are needed to pray and prepare themselves to know how to communicate the gospel in a way that will cause the Kumhar people to desire to experience the light only found in Jesus Christ.

Scripture Focus

"Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."  1 Peter 2:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord would to extend His mercy to this people group and that many of them become God’s children.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Sikh Kumhars would be touched by God's word. Pray for many to come to Christ among the Sikh Kumhars in the 2020s.
