India is a diversely beautiful country full of life, energy and culture. It is the second largest country in the world with more than 1.2 billion inhabitants. It had the world’s fastest growing economy at the end of 2016. It is also one of the most religious countries in the world with their most popular religion being Hinduism. Christianity is growing in India, but more than 400 million people have still never heard the name of Jesus.
Because India is closed to foreign missionaries, it poses a unique and difficult challenge to carrying out the great commission. We want to help those Christians living in India who have taken up the challenge and are working to spread the message of salvation to their own people. Equipping the Christian leaders of India with theological knowledge will help them impact their own neighborhoods and societies – nationals reaching nationals. The goal of One Fair Chance and Good News Bible College and Seminary is to get the gospel to all corners of the Indian nation.

Billy & Saritha
Billy was brought up in a God-fearing family. Both of Billy’s great grandfathers served as missionaries to Myanmar (Burma). From a young age, Billy was active in his father’s ministry, although he didn’t repent of his sins, put faith in Christ, and get baptized until the age of 16. In India Billy earned an MBA in Finance and a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. Most recently he earned a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry at Shepherds Theological Seminary in Cary, NC.
Saritha was born into a Christian family. Although she attended Sunday school and youth events, her life was not transformed by the gospel until she started personally exploring the purpose of life. As a result of her grandmother’s godly influence and her own study of the Bible, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized in her teens.
Billy and Saritha have two daughters named Bernice and Keren.
