Who Is Ebenezer Samuel? Meet Serve India’s director.
In 2006, Samuel and a team of like-minded individuals founded Serve India in answer to a call: to equip 20,000 national pastors in India for evangelism and church planting. Samuel is widely known simply as “Ebey.”
From his early days as a young missionary in North India to his work as General Director for a major missions organization, Ebey has more than 30 years of experience serving the Lord in India:
A burning passion for transformation: By Ebenezer Samuel
I remember the day a postcard arrived in the mail from a man who described himself as a professional murderer. Now I’m getting mail from assassins? I was a young missionary in North India with my wife and baby girl in those days.
“I heard about Jesus Christ for the first time through your radio program,” the man wrote. “He has changed my life. Now I want to change my profession.”
When I read those words, I literally jumped up and down for joy. In that moment, something deeply significant happened in my heart as I made a lifelong commitment to bring the name of Jesus—no matter the cost—to the people of India.
Throughout my years of serving the Lord, this commitment has become a burning passion.
Today, India stands at the crossroads as more than 600 million people seek a way out of oppressive socio-economic and religious structures. Where will they turn? In the words of Isaiah the prophet, they are the poor, the imprisoned, the blind, and the oppressed. They are the harvest ready to be gathered into the storehouse of God.
I invite you to join hands with us to see India won for Christ and her people, like that assassin, transformed by the saving power of Jesus. Whether you sponsor, pray, or volunteer, you can help us equip 20,000 national workers to reach 100,000 villages with the message of salvation before the Lord’s return.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory … throughout all generations, forever….” (Ephesians 3:20-21, NIV).
On behalf of India’s unreached villages,
