In 1974, Pastor Abraham was a 21 year old chemist who had a top paying job and could have had a car (a big deal in his native country of India): his life felt secure. Then God spoke to him and said, “Son, I have called you for a very specific purpose. I want you to resign your job, get out of your home, and go and preach the gospel to your people.” Pastor Abraham obeyed God’s call to preach even though he had no experience.
Within a few months he was broke, homeless, and hungry. “Having something to eat was the biggest miracle in my life in those days,” he said. After two years of prayer and patience, Pastor Abraham and Pastor V.A. Thampy joined forces in 1976 and founded New India Church of God (NICOG). For the next four years, Pastor Abraham worked hard to expand the ministry in South India. In 1980 he felt the Lord tell him to expand the ministry to North India. With the prayers of Pastor Thampy and friends, Pastor Abraham began his journey for the next chapter of his ministry.
Today, his ministry is actively preaching the gospel, church planting, and training native missionaries and pastors.
