Our Pastor - Rev. Abraham Thomas

Rev. Abraham Thomas, Cheenkayil

Rev. Abraham Thomas is our current pastor, and he is the founder of our church. He was born and brought up in a faithful ‘Marthoma’ Christian family (believed to be descendants of Christians converted through the work of the Apostle Thomas in India). After his college education, he moved to the Middle East to find work. Although he understood and practiced Christianity well, it was during his time in the Middle east that he actually had the opportunity, to develop a personal relationship with Christ. This happened through the miraculous healing of his elder son Shawn. Since then, he has devoted himself to teaching, preaching and practicing the Christian life. In order to prepare himself for church ministry, he registered for and completed a bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministry (DTE), from Bethel Bible College, Punalur, India.

Rev. Thomas is also a talented Christian musician and has composed and produced over 100 Malayalam worship songs which have been compiled into several albums. These songs have been posted on youtube as well as on www.indiachristian.com

Rev. Thomas is married to Valsa Abraham a hospital nurse who supports him wholeheartedly in his ministry, and also leads the women’s fellowship ministry. He has two sons Shawn and Sam Abraham and has three grand daughters Rebecca, Johanna & Joelle.

His younger son Sam Abraham is the youth Pastor and the worship leader of the church.
