ISPCK Through the CenturiesISPCK’s travel through three centuries has been an inspiring saga of challenge and change. The story began way back in 1710 when the Germans, Danish Lutherans and British Anglicans got together to establish the SPCK in South India. Since then the SPCK has traversed through a long and rewarding journey of Indianisation and diversification. Moving towards a transformational change from a single mission society to one of India’s largest multi ministry Christian organisation. This spectacular transformation is manifest not only in the strategic expansion of its footprint, in range, scale and scope of ISPCK ministries today. The Society has made a large contribution to the Indian social and spiritual fabric through multi-dimensional efforts in creating spiritual and societal capital.
Leveraging enterprise strengths of over three centuries in terms of deep consumer insights, unwavering focus on quality, innovation, reader led differentiation, product excellence have helped the ISPCK create vibrant brands. This has helped ISPCK gain remarkable market stand. Christian fiction and value education is a new take in the publishing spectrum.
The Super ordinate vision to create enduring value for the entire church and Christian community is manifest in the inclusive and sustainable value publishings that stand alongside and rub shoulders with the most significant names in Christian publishing worldwide.
ISPCK’s new venture of the 10 volume Human Value series produced for national schools is a distinguishing innovation to contribute to the continuous character development for nation building.
ISPCK awards excellence in publishing each year through 3 designated awards: The Henry Devadas Christian Book of the Year, The Rev. A. Lobban for Indigenous Literature and Christian Music Award.
ISPCK’s mission initiatives are oriented at building assets for the future. In recent times, Christian religious leaders have expressed concerns on the slow down in the pace of Mission ventures putting at risk the future of the church in India. It has become all the more important to repose faith in the Gospel and invest in creating leadership in the long term prospects of the Indian Church. ISPCK has charted an investment plan of at least 25% of its annual income for over the next decade to support the development of mission engagement in the Indian Church. At present over seven projects large and small are in various stages of implementation across the country.
- Bible and Bicycle has enrolled over 300 evangelists for mission engagement in the regions of Haryana, Punjab, Uttrakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Nagpur and Ahmednagar.
- Publishing subsidies for liturgy and worship of the Church of North India.
- Book grants each year to over 2000 theological students in first and final year.
- Library development programmes of churches and institutions.
- Pastors gift schemes: Books on issues challenging the church and community are gifted to Clergy and Bishops on an ecumenical basis.
- Indigenous church support.
- Thomas Bray Scholarship for a theological student each year, are a part of ISPCK’s mission agenda.
Capacity enhancement of potential writers is at the heart of Writer’s Workshops, conducted by the ISPCK both nationally and internationally. Hundreds of women, dalits, tribals and indigenous clergy and laity have been trained in writing skills under the “ISPCK’s How to Write Right” writers development programme of over three decades now. Development of content in their context for global impact is the high point of these workshops.
Human potential development of personnel in Christian publishing in the majority world has encouraged the ISPCK to engage in Theme Oriented Publishing training from 1990. Professionals drawn from world class publishing organizations train personnel from the Christian publishing network, honing their skills for optimum performance. Themes vary from publishing, editorial, diffusion, finance, production, quality control to green publishing. Engaging participants from Madagascar, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Phillippines, United Kingdom and Nepal. Scholarships are provided to women and subaltern.
Christian Teachers Training
Free School teachers are provided regular training in skills development to enrich their teaching methodology.
ISPCK’s abiding vision to serve the national church priorities has led to the creation of unique and innovative distribution models. This simultaneously delivers the twin objectives of stake holders value creation and societal capital formation. This is manifest in ISPCK’s conscious strategy to contribute to the regional outreach in the context of its impact through the value chains. Expanding each year through its outlets of bookstores, booktables, retail outlets, through church and theological institutions participation. Spread of Christian literature and creation of sustainable livelihood is at the heart of this strategy.
The internet friendly community can visit the ISPCK website on www.ispck.org.in, or Google us “Print Title-ISPCK” and track us on amazon.com for online ordering or read books on Kindle and download ISPCK songs from Youtube.
In addition, the Society supplies high-quality items for the church i.e., a wide range of candles, vestments, clerical garments, religious gifts and accessories through its bookshops and mail-order service.
Based on the dictum “Investing in a child is investing in your future”. The ISPCK teaming up with World Literacy Free Schools Programme, Canada took on board the Free Schools Programme for the 4-14 window. Over 5000 children from backgrounds as diverse as bonded labour, rag picking communities, migrant groups, sex workers and street kids have been invested into from 1998 in over six centers managed by the ISPCK Free Schools. These centers of learning provide education and values to children upto primary level preparing them to join secondary education in neighbourhood schools. ISPCK’s child centric development creates a generation of educated and socially aware front liners for a rapidly developing and changing India.
The Ghaziabad Free School is being constructed to cater to various training programmes for the teachers by resource persons from academic communities in India and overseas.
Around 11,000 Burmese Refugees living in the vicinity of Uttam Nagar, New Delhi have over 750 school going children under the primary level. These children have a handicap of the Hindi language. They are being taught by the volunteers from the Burmese communities. Despite support from the United Nations and other organizations these centers are in regular need of infrastructure, textbooks, uniforms, drinking water, better wages for their teachers. The ISPCK underwrites considerable expenses each year for the forementioned things.
The lack of legal status in India and proper education and unfamiliarity with both Hindi and English make it rather difficult for them to fit in socially and to find jobs. Besides, a majority of employers in Delhi are not comfortable with the idea of hiring refugees. Most of the Burmese-Chin and Matu refugees in Delhi live in overcrowded rooms not knowing how to make a living in an alien country and are often discriminated, abused and harassed by the locals.
Life Skills Development
From 1998 more than 5000 women have benefitted by ISPCK’s globally acknowledged Women’s Empowerment Programme.
‘Disha’ one of the most celebrated women’s empowerment initiative has helped raise rural incomes by energizing village communities into vibrant economic organizations. Producing clergy shirts which are being sold in the Diocese of Derby and at several ISPCK outlets, transforming rural lives and landscapes through this economic independence. Women’s training programme helps in inculcating sustainable livelihood practices for women in over six villages spread across Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Punjab and Maharashtra.
Women’s Empowerment Programme—a literacy and vocational skills training for women at the grass-roots level is an instrument for transforming lives of women victims of human trafficking, climate change, migrant labour, widows or former sex workers. Educated and informed women become game changers in their family and community development.Rev. Dr. Ashish Amos

The first activity in association with the Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Convention was the establishment of a Church in Tundla, a town 25 kms. away from Agra, in 1949. In 1950 a school for children from the economically weaker section was started in Meerut. The Mission shifted its focus to New Delhi in the mid 1950s as a prayer fellowship in a rented house in Daryaganj. Later a leprosy colony was established by the Government in Shahdra, East Delhi in 1960, named Anandgram. A Chapel and a clinic were built there by the then Superintendent Dr Abner Nelson and his wife Dr Mrs Ivy Frey Nelson. The Indian Mission was registered as a Society in November 1962 with the building at Daryaganj, New Delhi as its Headquarters. A chapel was built on the premises in 1967 which was dedicated to the Glory of God by late Rev. Dr. W C Somerville, the then Secretary/Treasurer of the Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Convention, USA.
The Mission has three pastors who look after Churches in Daryaganj, Anandgram and Karnal. Outreach work is being done in Gannaur, Haryana where it is proposed to build a suitable Church for the small congregation.
At present the geographic areas being served are the States of Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh in North India. The Mission expanded its medical work in leprosy colonies to cover Karnal, Panipat and Faridabad. Clinics are also held in slum areas in Delhi and Faridabad.
As far as Education is concerned at a time when girls education was rather neglected, a school for girls was opened in 1968 in Daryaganj, New Delhi. Further schools going upto Senior Secondary level were opened in East Delhi, Noida and Greater Noida. A fourth school is under construction in Noida. Three charitable schools are run in Meerut, West Delhi and Faridabad. These cater to children of the economically weaker section and orthopedically handicapped children.
In recent years the Mission has taken up work in the area of HIV/AIDS with a Care & Support Home with 7 beds and full supporting staff functioning in West Delhi and doing excellent work. Assistance is extended to deserving cases in the areas of education and health.Area of Operation – India Objectives of LCBMI- working among the Leprosy patients by providing medical relief, training them for various jobs and providing education to their children.
