The Lutheran Hour – India is the pioneer Organization in the field of Christian Mass Media Ministry in India. It all started with a humble beginning in the year 1951 in a small room in Triplicane area in the Chennai City, the capital of the Southern State, Tamilnadu. We are the pioneers in the field of Christian Radio Broadcasting and also pioneers to use the local folk arts for proclaiming the ‘Good News’ to reach the un reached people in this great land – India.
