As a Church we, the St. Thomas Evangelical Church of India, have entered the 50th year of our history on 26 January 2010. The honourable Sabha Council, in its meeting on December 18, 2009, has decided to celebrate this year (26/01/2010-26/01/2011) as our Golden Jubilee Year; to mark the occasion the Council has come up with following projects for the glory of God and for the all round spiritual and physical growth of our Church.

50 young ones dedicated for ministry

During this year we wish to encourage, identify and dedicate 50 young lives for full-time ministry. We pray and want to see that 50 boys and girls receive God’s call for ministry in our church and dedicate themselves for the services of the Lord and His church. Such lives, called by God and set apart for His ministry, will be a great asset to our church in the years to come. We need a band of committed, fully surrendered capable young people come for the service of the church.

50 Full Time Workers

During this year we wish to see 50 workers (achens, evangelists, sevinis, missionaries etc) from different language groups enter into active full time ministry. High Range/Malabar Mission (North Kerala Mission) We desire to give special focus to the outreach ministry to the High Range and Malabar regions in Kerala, which is our ‘Jerusalem.’
