Biography: Shalom Church of Bhubaneswar and Bless India Movement are located in the city of Bhubaneswar, which means "the dwelling place of god", and is home to more than 500 temples. The church was started in 2003 with five people - Prabas Kumar, Anupama and their three children. The small fellowship began growing daily, as did their burden to win lost souls to Christ. Today their numbers are around 100 members who enjoy close fellowship and the warm presence of God. The church vision is to plant churches in other parts of the city and eventually beyond.
The ministry has cell groups, as well as teams from the church to go weekly into an area to conduct prayer meetings. They have a children's ministry, as well as a youth ministry which meets every Saturday to spend time in praise and worship, meditating on the Word and in prayer. They also practice songs to share on Sunday morning.
