New Nation Church: India

In May of 2014, Pastor Kanna Babu Mothe emailed New Nation Church International, expressing interest in being affiliated with NNCI. Since our founding, we have received many contacts every week from people, churches, and ministries expressing interest in some type of affiliation with us. Very, very few people complete the questionnaire and the required documents for us to review and prayerfully consider this; those few who do rarely show much grounding in Jesus Christ or the Bible. Pastor Kanna stood out in his clear understanding of and ability to clearly communicate Biblical Christianity. After a good number of live video interviews and conversations, Pastor Kanna and Apostle Todd developed a warm friendship, and it was time for Apostle Todd to go in person to meet Pastor Kanna and witness the ministry that he and his family had already established in India. In the spring of 2015, Apostle Todd, later joined by his wife Ruth, were easily able to confirm that Pastor Kanna and the ministry that he lead in the Telangana State of India would be a welcome addition to the New Nation Church International family. Working together, the ministry has grown and New Nation Church of India now has 15 congregations in the Rural Khammam District of Telangana State and the bordering Andra Pradesh State.

The National Director for New Nation Church of India is Evangelist & Pastor Kanna Babu Mothe who is married to wife Keerthi. They have two beautiful children: daughter Ruth and a newly born son who will be named when he reaches 6 months old as is their tradition. Pastor Kanna’s parents, brother Ajay and the rest of his family engage in the life of the ministry quite actively along with the other pastors, elders, and deacons/deaconesses of our congregations in India.

New Nation Church of India is headquartered at the original congregation in Tallada (also spelled Thallada), is a mandal with some 73,000 people in the Rural Khammam District of the Telangana State of India. The primary village is also called Tallada with a population of about 15,000. The main language spoken there is Telugu. The region’s economy is primarily based on agriculture.

New Nation CHurch,

among the forest people tribe

New Nation Church in a Forest People Village is a congregation amongst an unnamed tribal people who live in the forests of Telangana State to the northeast of Tallada. The people are sometimes called ‘the nameless ones’ due to the fact that the oppressive caste system of India considers these gentle people to be so low that they are too low to be in a caste and therefore not worthy of a name or identity. Many Hindu people do not even consider them to be human beings, but we are blessed to call these people brothers and sisters in Christ. A majority of the people in this village worship as part of New Nation Church International.
