Team members include Jerry and Marilyn Hogshead, Rich and Mary Jo Robison with their three children, Tim Brenda, Brian Moore, and Richard Slimbach.

ILE: Mission to Indian Leaders

International Leadership Enterprises (ILE) has been formed through the efforts of Jitendra "Jay" Gupta, an Indian from New Delhi, to bring Christ to Hindu people by reaching the influential leaders, businessmen, and professionals of his native land with the Gospel of Christ.

Gupta points out that most of today's missionary endeavors in India are concentrated on the lower socio economic strata of society. There exists very little outreach to influential leaders and professionals.

ILE will bring Christian businessmen and professionals from North America and India to be involved in seminars and business ministries as well as share the message of new life in Christ.

ILE is formed as a new division of International Students, Inc., and Team Ventures International of Canada.
