Ishvani Kendra is a National Institute of Missiology and Communications. Fr. Engelbert Zeitler SVD, a missionary and visionary, founded this Institute at Pune in 1976. According to him, it was to serve as the nerve centre of revolutionary thinking in the field of Missiology and Evangelization. Even today, Ishvani Kendra attempts to keep alive the vision and legacy of the founding generation by conducting renewal courses, research seminars, media education and audio-video productions.
