About Us

Missions in India

Silver Trumpet Ministries is a 501C3 non-profit started under the direction of Dr. Cindy Essex-Walker for the express purpose of starting Bible Institutes in third world countries to provide solid Bible Teaching to believers. Our mission is the "Great Commission" as found in Matthew 28:19,20 and our theme verse is II Timothy 2:2.

Why the name "Silver Trumpet?" In Numbers 10:2 the Lord spake unto Moses saying, "Make thee two silver trumpets that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly and for the journeying of the camps."

Our goal in the Silver Trumpet Bible Institutes is clear: 1. The calling of the assembly, to recruit and train leaders. 2. The journeying of the camp, that the trained students in our Bible Institutes will take what they have learned and go make disciples. Trumpets in the Bible were always used to rally God's people at times of great celebrations and when they went out to war against the enemy. We are in a battle as we fight the enemy Satan delivering souls from spiritual darkness but we are having times of great celebration with victories being won and many Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims being saved!

Our target countries are Bangalore, India; Kathmandu, Nepal; and Malawi, Zimbabwe and South Africa.   We presently have two Institutes in India training 40 students. Our former students have spread the gospel in 18 service villages, started 5 new training centers for converts and witnessed 458 souls saved! In Nepal we have 30 students studying now. The church there has grown from 38 to over 250 as a result of the witness of former students. In Malawi, Africa we currently have 4 Bible Institutes with 75 students and have seen 27,090 souls saved! Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

Our mission remains the same: to equip believers, to evangelize non-believers and to continue to enlist new students that will become future missionaries. In Nepal, we have started New Frontier missions to go to each of Nepal's 14 states with the good news of salvation. A missionary there can be supported for 30.00 U.S dollars a month. In India we are training twenty 17,18,and 19 year olds as futures native missionaries to win the Hindus and Buddhists of India. In West Bengal, a new Silver Trumpet Bible Institute has been opened.  In Malawi, the Silver Trumpet evangelistic teams are out each week in villages on bicycles that can be purchased for $110.00 per bike, distributing Chechewa Bibles that can be purchased by Americans for $8.50 each. Many muslims have been converted. Six new churches have been started this year in Malawi.  Two new schools are opening in Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Silver Trumpet Ministries continues to minister the Word, make disciples and multiply churches through discipleship training courses and personal evangelism classes. Please pray for this endeavor as we train students to proclaim the gospel, do the work of the ministry and make disciples of all nations. Please pray for our 195 students and our 8 Instructors and 4 National Directors in India, Nepal,Malawi, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Thank-you for your prayers.
