About Chip & Jean

Over three decades, Bangalore, India has been home for Dr. Rev. Chip and Jean Kingery, where their three children were born. In 1986, they began the ministry of proVISION ASIA, dedicated to the empowerment and advocacy of people affected by disabilities. While focusing on the spiritual needs of these marginalized people, proVISION ASIA also addresses medical needs, job placement, education and socioeconomic needs of this community. Ten percent of India’s 1.3 billion population are comprised of people with various disabilities.

For over a decade, Chip brought to GTN a passion for transformation among the global disability community, training in disability ministry and the theology of suffering. Chip and Jean were always on the cutting edge of ministry, working alongside indigenous and committed staff. The first app was created, MPOWER, which reaches out to Indian churches helping them navigate the Luke 14 Mandate.

Chip and Jean both worked for Joni and Friends in Agoura Hills, California. The vast experiences they encountered helped strengthen their call ‘back to India’ eight years ago. Their eldest daughter and her husband, Keturah and Danny Gray, joined the ministry six years ago bringing new ideas and partnership. 

With heightened government scrutiny, Chip and Jean left India December 2017, to pursue their ‘Third Calling’. On September 10, 2018 Chip’s soul was ushered into heaven after a brief fight with an aggressive kidney cancer. Memorial services were held in Simi Valley and Bangalore.

Jean is continuing the legacy they began together solo. She is pursuing a minister’s license with the Missionary Church. Jean plans to train pastors and church leaders in the US to help Majority World churches embrace disability ministry… multiplying the Luke 14 ministry model. 

The Indian staff of proVISION ASIA are deeply grateful for the opportunity to be part of the GTN family.
