Chauhan in India


Chauhan in India

The Hindu Chauhans give special devotion to the goddess Durga, who embodies local gods and demons associated with mountains, plants and fire. Their name comes from a past ruler, and they belong to the Kshatriya caste, just below the high Brahmin priestly caste. They earn their living in farming, business, and banking. Even though they are Kshatriya, they seek upward mobility through marriage, especially the women.

Ministry Obstacles

Ministry obstacles are few, but significant. Because they speak Hindi, they do not stand out; they are truly a "hidden people" whose caste pride, devotion to Durga, and upward mobility leaves no room for Jesus Christ. There are no known Chauhan believers to witness to them.

Outreach Ideas

Outreach should focus on the JESUS Film, radio and television, Scripture distribution, and especially faithful prayer.

Scripture Focus

"Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises."  Psalm 66:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray that today’s people group will loudly sing His praises to other nations.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Hindi-speaking churches in their areas will see these "hidden people" and seek to witness to them until there is a movement to Christ. Pray that God will open their hearts and minds to the gospel, that the JESUS Film will be viewed by many, and that many will read the Scriptures and respond positively. Pray for dreams and visions that will help them to realize that there is no God but Jesus.
