Scott Ingram: November Update

November 2014

     This year I celebrated both my 30th birthday and the Thanksgiving holiday with a whirlwind trip to India. For a short trip, with only 9 full days on the ground, HGIM India team member, Dan, and I had the the opportunity to speak in a three-day pastor’s conference, about 17 different churches, and an open-air outreach. During the pastor’s conference, I shared on three core values for Christian leadership: living a life marked by holiness, worship, and humility. It was well received by the 50-60 pastors in attendance.

     In the many churches we visited, Dan and I both shared encouraging, gospel-centered messages as the Lord led, then had the opportunity to lay hands on and pray for every member and visitor in attendance. I shared many messages intended on encouraging the believers to persevere in the face of trials and persecutions, and Dan shared many helpful insights from Jesus’ parables. 

     Though traveling to all the different village churches required many hours in a packed car, it was well worth it. Sharing the word and praying with people are my favorite parts of my job description.


The website and Facebook page for the HGIM Leadership Network are both up and running. 

You can sign up to receive the 

twice-per-month leadership principles here and join in the discussions on the Facebook page


Please help us spread the word to your friends, family, and church congregations. The first leadership principle will roll out the first week of January.

     Finally, on the last night of our trip we took part in an open air outreach organized by some of our churches. There were over 100 people in attendance, and I had the opportunity to preach to gospel over the loudspeakers in the middle of a very Hindu village. Two people came forward to receive Christ, before we again opened the prayer lines for anyone in attendance.

End of Year Giving

     First of all, I want to thank everyone who gave to Heart of God in the #GivingTuesday campaign. Your donations will help keep the HGIM infrastructure running for another year.

     I want to take a moment to remind you that end of year giving season is in full swing, and ask that as you begin looking to get your last minute charitable gifts out this year, would you consider supporting my evangelistic work as a part of your giving? All donations made by December 31 will receive a charitable gift receipt for your 2014 income tax filing. If you are a business owner or know someone who might be interested and would like to talk with me directly to discuss how contributions can be made or how the funds would be spent, I would love to do that as well. 

    Donations can be made online at and you can contact me directly for more information at 1-888-91PSALM (ext. 1) or

Reminder: 2015 Summer Internship

     Don’t forget, I am taking applications for next summer’s 10-weeki nternship in Uganda and South Sudan. The internship will consist of hands-on discipleship and training for an evangelistic lifestyle, and will include ministry opportunities for teaching, preaching, open-air outreaches, door-to-door evangelism, prayer ministry for the sick in village hospitals, prison ministry in rural Sudan, and participation in the Youth Ablaze conference.

     The cost for this internship is $7000 per person which covers all travel, housing, food, and ministry expenses. (Any personal expenses must be taken care of by the participant.) Applications will require a pastoral recommendation as well as three personal references. All applications will be prayerfully considered on a first-come basis. Interns must be at least 18 years old; I will be accepting up to 8 interns for this summer program. For more information, please contact me directly.

  • Pray for my end-of-year fundraising goals and for a successful season of fundraising for the first quarter of 2015. My current level of support is very low, and I have put off catching up for too long.
  • Pray for the successful launch of the HGIM Leadership Network and for the global leaders it may reach.
  • Pray for me as I continue to prepare next summer’s internship.



“Radical obedience to Christ is not easy… It’s not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”
