Bania (Oriya) People Group

Bania (Oriya) People Group

THE BANIA (ORIYA) PEOPLE GROUP HAS A POPULATION OF ABOUT 263,000. They live in East India, within the state of Odisha. Their primary religion is Hinduism, and the majority of them have never heard the message of the gospel. Our team has begun raising up new disciples among them. We have trained 6 new believers from the Bania, and with your help and the power of the Holy Spirit, those 6 can multiply exponentially! They are eager to spread the gospel among the rest of their people group, and our team is eager to come alongside them as they work towards raising up disciples, churches, and Christian leaders until there are worshiping groups in all the villages, communities, and localities of the Bania (Oriya) people.

Plan of Action


A team enters into their community to share the gospel. those who accept Jesus are trained on how to share the gospel themselves, disciple others, and start churches. From this, a team of local leaders is formed.


A training team is sent again to the community to teach the Biblical principles and the foundation behind the gospel-sharing, disciple-making, and church-planting skills.


A training team is sent a third time to help the local leaders develop coaching and problem-solving skills, Biblical studying skills, and sound doctrine that altogether lead to healthy churches. The continued practice and spreading of these skills and Biblical principles leads to complete local ownership of evangelism among the Bania (Oriya) people group.
