About LCMI

LCMI Mission: Life Change Ministries International exists to help children See, Know, and Experience the Lord Jesus Christ.

LCMI Vision: To reach children with God’s Word, which could lead them to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, through Christian camping.

Based in Denver, Pennsylvania, Life Change Ministries International works to bring the good news of the Gospel to children and families in India and Asia through Christian camping ministry. We conduct camps and seminars throughout the year in rural and tribal areas for children, families, people with special needs, and pastors.

The power of the Gospel that is experienced through one week of Christian camping ministry can have a more significant and immediate impact on a young person’s walk with Christ than a year of attending Sunday school.

About LCMI’s Founders

Born and raised in India, Sanjay moved to the United States for his Masters. Keren joined him there after their marriage. Sanjay was visiting India to teach in a pastor's conference in 2003. While he was driving to the conference, the Lord opened Sanjay's eyes to the hopelessness in children’s lives in India and laid a burden on the hearts of both Sanjay and Keren to pray about reaching the children of this land.

Guided by the Lord after more than a year of praying, seeking God's will for their lives, and seeking godly counsel, Sanjay and Keren formed Life Change Ministries International in 2004 with a vision to share the message of Christ's love and His gospel with the children and teenagers of India through Christian camping. The organization has been growing steadily for almost 20 years and is currently serving not only children but families and pastors in India and Asia. Sanjay and Keren live in Pennsylvania and are blessed with three children.

  • Sanjay is a Sanskrit word that means victory, specifically a victory in a military battle or an internal battle over judging oneself.
  • Keren is a Hebrew name that has several meanings, including “ray of light.” It is a shortened version of Kerenhappuch, one of Job’s daughters.

Message from the Board

"Jesus cared and loved those who were oppressed and living in darkness both in a spiritual and physical sense and He loved children as an advocate and caring father. At LCMI, the heart of our ministry is to bring light to places of darkness by providing a safe environment for children to come, learn, be loved and cared for as family. We, the board, believe that introducing Jesus through camping changes the lives of children, reaches families, and impacts neighborhoods and communities as the light of Jesus shines forth in changed lives!"
