We have a small Bible Institute. Its contact Bible Institute, I mean we conduct classes once in a month.
Around 44 students have been enrolled in these classes. We conduct it one to two days in a month about four sessions that cover the outline of two subjects or topics. Many students are the college-going students, young men and women.

2. SPM Church Ministries
I am happy to tell you about our Church ministries that what our pastors are doing here in Odisha state of India, especially among the tribal, weak, and oppressed people.
I am the director of this “Spiritual Profits Ministries” (SPM) Church, and Pr. Dominic Nayak is the founder and central pastor. We were a total of eleven members in our team, but one person passed away and went to be the glory of God.
Some of them are pastors, and some of them are both pastors and teachers. Pr. Dominic Nayak was called by God and ordained by God’s servants and serving among these people. He has established around ten churches so far, and most of them are home churches.
History and background of SPM Church Ministries
Once, we all were in a Roman Catholic background. A few years back in 1990, my cousin Santa Ranjan Nayak was born, but soon he was found to be affected by polio.
In the same year, a big convention was held in Cuttack in Odisha, the speaker of which was Dr. D.G.S. Dinakaran and Gospel Preacher and a healer from India.
When my uncle Deacon Marsel Nayak heard of that meeting, he took my cousin Santa Ranjan Nayak, there to get healing, he was not healed and still not recovered, but they came with the gospel message.
After my uncle returned home, he shared everything with my father, younger uncle, and family members. Thus we all came to the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and the Lord. Then I was studying in the 6th class.
Development of SPM Church Ministries
Since the year 1990, we grew in the Lord in praying and worshipping Him.
But my father, Pr. Dominic Nayak, had a special calling for the church planting ministries, so God started using him to establish new churches in new places.
So he started working for the Lord, among the other relatives of our family and then other people, especially among the tribal people in our nearby places, and he established 5 to 7 churches here.
In 2001, my father, Pr. Dominic, was ordained as a full-fledged pastor by Pastor Benjamin Behera (Cuttack) and Pastor Mukriraj Nayak (Damonjudi) as God spoke them many times about the ordination of my father.
Since then, we are at the service of God; many people came to Christ; many more churches were added to the Lord. And now we have ten churches and ten pastors and me, we all at His service.
Methods and Approaches of SPM Church Ministries
We use the Pauline methods of evangelism and do the indigenization ways of works. When we plan to start a church, we focus on place and a potential person from that place.
Because when we start the church there, we teach people or new believers how to worship and read the Bible, etc. along with giving some extra training of leadership to that particular person.
Our ultimate motive of doing this is, once that person is ready for the leadership of that church, we ordain him and hand over the responsibilities of that church to him to lead in the Lord.
These methods help us in two ways:
- We no need to give that local pastor house rent or food expenses; he manages all himself because he is from that village.
- He provides the fulltime in his gospel work looking after the believers, conducting services, meetings, etc. from time to time.
And the central pastor visits the churches as per his schedule, convenience, or as needed to encourage them in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Finance and Support of SPM Church Ministries
We are purely independent and self-supported, utterly dependent on God. We work and serve the Lord as Apostle Paul was doing.
We appoint a pastor for a church from that church itself, as I have mentioned above so that we no need to take much burden for our physical needs but concentrate on God’s works.
They work in their field and serve the Lord in their respective villages itself.
Our other needs of the churches met by the tithes and offering of the believers. Every month, we have a pastoral meeting where all the pastors come to that meeting with the tithes and offerings of their particular church.
After the prayer, they discuss the reports and testimonies from the pastors; then, they collect money in one place and distribute it among them.
We do not have any sponsors or supporters from India nor from abroad. We entirely depend on our work and God.
Of course, our pastors have many needs in their families, like school fees of children, current bills, and other expenses.
We are praying to God for any sponsors or supporters to help our pastors financially for particular needs to be met, as mentioned above, so that they may be more tension free to serve the Lord.
I have presented our SPM Church ministries very briefly. Whatever I gave discussed or mentioned are the real experiences of our pastors. Please do pray for us and our ministries.
Thank you very much for patiently reading about our ministries.
