MTN

TOGETHER FOR A BETTER CITY

Since 2003, many Christian churches, leaders, denominations, groups, and organizations in Mumbai have been working increasingly closely together.​

Overcoming differences and developing a new shared vision for Mumbai has led to the formation of MTN - a movement open and friendly to all.​

Today MTN connects churches, leaders, and denominations to one another through prayer, zones, streams, and events.

OUR STORY

Since the 1970s-80s, several leaders in the church in Mumbai had made attempts to work at much-needed unity among us all. This was a deeply felt need, if not a desperate cry from many leaders from many different backgrounds. It was as though God was moving our hearts to come together. (Eph 4:4-6)

Something amazing happened in 2003, that saw many different parts of the body of Christ come together by the power of the Holy Spirit at a Prayer Summit, like never before. MTN was forged out of that momentous time with God; and 17 years later it continues to openly and warmly welcome more and more leaders who seek Christ-centered unity for Mumbai's churches.


MUMBAI TRANSFORMATION NETWORK is a rare partnership of Christian leaders from across denominations representing hundreds of local churches working together since 2003. We are a close-knit relational network of kingdom-minded pastors and leaders of independent church networks, Christian business leaders, and NGO leaders, praying and working together for a unified movement in the city of Mumbai.

AND IT'S NOT JUST AN IDEA. WE REALLY BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL USE THIS MOVEMENT TO MAKE OUR CITY BETTER FOR EVERYONE.

MTN is helping churches have a real positive impact in improving all areas of life in our neighborhoods (via ZONES) and deep impact in specific spheres of society in our city (via STREAMS). MTN doesn’t believe it has all the answers on how, but wishes to create an open platform where we can work together to discover those answers.
