LCMI Mission: Life Change Ministries International exists to help children See, Know, and Experience the Lord Jesus Christ.
LCMI Vision: To reach children with God’s Word, which could lead them to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, through Christian camping.
Based in Denver Pennsylvania, Life Change Ministries International works to bring the good news of the Gospel to children and teenagers in India through Christian camping. We operate a variety of different camps throughout the year in both metropolitan and rural tribal locations for children and teens with and without special needs.
The work at LCMI is highly rewarding, and our goal is to be the hands and feet of Christ to children and families in India, reaching many more young people in India, and expanding our work across Southeast Asia.
It has been noted that one week of Christian camping can have a more powerful impact on a young person’s walk with Christ than a year of attending Sunday school.
About LCMI’s Founders
Born and reared in India, Sanjay* and Keren* both later moved to the United States. Sanjay took a job with a Christian organization and was on a visit back to India teaching in a pastor's conference in 2003. While he was driving to the conference, the Lord opened Sanjay's eyes to the hopelessness in children’s lives in India and laid a burden on the hearts of both Sanjay and Keren to pray about reaching the children of this land.
Guided by the Lord, after more than a year of praying and seeking God's will for their lives, Sanjay and Keren formed Life Change Ministries Intl. in 2004 with a vision to share the message of Christ's love and His gospel with the children and teenagers of India through Christian camping. The organization has been growing steadily for more than a decade and is currently serving not only children, but also whole families in India, Nepal, and God willing, in South Asia in the near future. Sanjay and Keren live in Pennsylvania and are blessed with three children.
- Sanjay is a Sanskrit word that means victory, specifically a victory in a military battle or an internal battle over judging oneself.
- Keren is a Hebrew name that has several meanings, including “ray of light.” It is a shortened version of Kerenhappuch, one of Job’s daughters.
