GKPI, Church for the Radiation of the Gospel


The Church for the Radiation of the Gospel (GKPI) is composed mainly of members of the Dayak ethnic group. The partnership with the Basel Mission (today Mission 21) began in 1964. Most of the approximately 20,000 church members live in rural areas and have a very modest income. They are cared for by more than 50 pastors. The church employees receive only a low salary and cultivate their own fields for self-sufficiency. The communities, which are geographically far apart, can sometimes only be reached by boats and small planes, but the farming population is dependent on solidarity and support. With its holistic approach, the GKPI supports the population in the areas of education, health, agriculture, livelihood security and women's empowerment, in addition to pastoral care. With the support of Mission 21, projects such as income generation for women, educational scholarships for poor youth from remote villages, awareness-raising on the issue of domestic violence and organizational development are made possible.
