TRINITY MAR THOMA CHURCH

5810 ALMEDA GENOA ROAD, HOUSTON, TEXAS 77048

EDAVAKA MISSION

 

The Voluntary Evangelists Association was founded in 1924. The believers felt the need for a spiritual renewal in the church, which created a yearning to present the Gospel to others. It was realized that this could not be fully achieved by the services of a few full time evangelists. On the other hand, every member of the church should be a missionary, filled with such joy and assurance of salvation as to be Christ's witness to those who come into contact with him/her, irrespective of one's work or profession, in secular life. Such people have the opportunity to come into contact with others in ordinary human situations and to communicate the Gospel message in a natural setting.

The organization has a 7 point program and they are as follows: 1. Intercessory Prayer 2. Bible Study 3. Sharing of experiences 4. House visit 5. Serving the sick and needy 6. Conducting prayer meetings 7. Gospel work among the people of other faith. The motto of the organization is "Every Marthomite is an Evangelist".

In 1986, the late Most Rev. Dr. Alexander Mar Thoma Metropolitan visited our parish and during the public meeting after the service, Thirumeni officially announced the formation of the Edavaka Mission at Trinity Mar Thoma Church. Past 35 years God blessed the organization to grow and become fruitful for the kingdom of God.  Our parish mission is a registered organization with the Head office at Thiruvalla.
