Bishop V.S.Azariah

Constrained by the love of Christ, a dynamic young man – Vedanyagam Samuel Azariah (who was destined to become the internationally acclaimed BISHOP AZARIAH OF DORNAKAL) shared his vision with like minded colleagues – 20 laymen and 8 clergymen who went on their knees and poured their hearts in prayer. Azaria who was then the Secretary of the YMCA. Palayamkottai attended a Christian youth conference in Jaffna and was very much influenced by the missionary zeal of the Jaffna Christians.Their God given vision opened the doors of an abundant fruitful mission through Indian Missionary Society born on 12th February 1903 at Palayamkottai, Thirunelvelli district, South India. Thus was born the first indigenous missionary organization whose aim is to obey the great commission of our Lord as proclaimed in Mathew 28: 19.
