Clay Cups

Clay Cups is a Christian non-profit that works with the untouchables of India.  We partner with Untouchable pastors of small villages to bring the hope of Jesus to a dry and thirsting land.  We equip, empower, and resource these Indian pastors as they reach the Hindu nation of India.

You can make a difference.

Join us in bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the least of these in India.

About Us

Who we are and What we do

For over a thousand years, India has been underneath a caste system.  Caste is essentially the class you are born into.  There are a few people that are high caste, while the majority of India are low caste.  Underneath them are the animals.  Underneath the animals are the people known as the Untouchables.  Over 300 million people have been told their whole lives that they are hated by the gods.  Because of their bad karma, they are born untouchable.

We bring a different message.  The Untouchables are not hated by the gods. There is one God, who loves them so much that He gave His only Son to reach out and touch them.  We bring a message of hope to a people who are hungry for it.

When the untouchables drink out in public, they would drink out of clay cups.  And when they finished their meal, they would break the clay cup on the ground.   The reason; so that no one of a higher caste would drink after them and be made unclean.  We have chosen the clay cup to represent the struggle of the DALIT.  For God can redeem what man has broken.

The work of Clay Cups is to come alongside Untouchable pastors as they endeavor to bring the hope of Jesus to the Dalits of India.  These pastors are telling thousands they they are not hated by the gods.  No.  They can be loved by the God of heaven.  Jesus has come to set the captives free.  This message of hope can bring joy in the midst of sorrow.  Hope in the midst of desperation.  And peace in the midst of turmoil.

We plant churches, provide Bibles to new believers, train pastors, and take care of the many widows and orphans of our villages.  For those who wish to come alongside, know that 95% of your gifts go directly to the work of India.  Your kindness bring hope around the world.  Thank you for caring for the Untouchables.
