Job Description

RIMI is an international, interdenominational evangelical Christian organization established in 1993. Our vision is to glorify Christ by training indigenous leaders who establish vibrant Christ-centered communities in South Asia and beyond in order to transform lives spiritually, socially and economically. This is implemented by the partnership of God’s people everywhere.

RIMI’s core passion is Evangelism and Church Planting. To help support those efforts, we are also involved in Leadership Development and Community Development Programs. RIMI partially supports 1,600 missionaries with over 12,000 house churches across India. RIMI also has 31 Bible Colleges and a major seminary at the heart of India (, which together train about 1,000 graduates per year. Additionally, RIMI has many community engagement programs, such as orphanages, schools, prevention to keep children from being used for sex trafficking, microfinance loans, healthcare, sanitation and clean water projects.

We operate from Lindenhurst, IL. Our bold vision is to raise up 100,000 Christ-like leaders, and plant 50,000 house churches across India, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
