|DK & Choity Sarkar|
When Diptendra Kumar (D.K) felt God's Call for the ministry he resigned from the State Electricity Board and became a full time evangelist. He leads a team of evangelists who start home groups for Hindus interested in Christianity. D.K. and Choity work among the Bengali people in and around Kolkata, India. They joined EFM in 2003 and brought with them a group of evangelists who supervise house churches and evangelistic cell groups. They serve in the slums and poor island areas as well as in other areas of West Bengal state. This is a growing movement and one with compassionate income-generating projects for the very poor.
Ministry Evangelical Friends Mission Kolkata started working in Kolkata and in its suburbs since 2003. Kolkata is known as the city of slams, there are approximately 3000 slams in and around this metropolis. We initiated our very first task in some of these slams. God blessed us with five slam fellowships. Gradually by his grace, the work multiplied in six different districts. Away from kolkata, these districts stretch over an area over 400 miles. Kolkata used to be known as slums. Now the builders are buying the slams and making building. To some people they give a place to stay in the building but to many they just cheat. Now it is not knows as city of slams.
We have churches and fellowships in seven districts in West Bengal state:
South 24 Parganas
North 24 Parganas
