As a youth Sam submitted his life to the Lord and decided to serve Him, even through his career. This desire became a reality when he joined AFC India in 2001 as a maintenance staff. Now he is the Manager (Administration) heading the administrative staff in the AFC India head office at Bangalore. In the 16 years that Sam has been with AFC India, he has poured out his talents and time to learn new things and work sincerely with the team. Having worked with three different National Directors, Sam got trained in the different segments of Administrative Ministry.
He also developed an interest in reviving AFC’s relationship with donors, some of whom have been contributing since almost the inception of AFC India. Several times he has travelled to meet and spend time with them out of his own passion. He has always come back with motivating stories of how AFC India has touched their lives and they have been convicted to support our ministry.
Sam lives in Bangalore with wife Lydia and their two daughters.
Jacob has been actively involved in full-time ministry for almost two decades now. At the young age of eighteen, when he had given up on his life, the Savior met him. In the subsequent years from being a youth with no aim Jacob became a man passionate for those being lost. Sharing the same mission of reaching the lost through the church, Jacob became a part of AFC India.
Today he is the Director for Gujarat state. AFC India has become a household name to many Christians in Gujarat due to him. He has developed active partnerships with many churches, through which youngsters, families, church leaders, individuals, all have been reached out. He frequently travels to different places in Gujarat teaching and preaching in many different churches of various denominations.
He has also come up with the very unique concept of Daily Devotions in Gujarati language, which he sends out through his mobile every single morning to thousands of Guajarati speaking people across the globe. People are being blessed by his ministry and revert back with amazing testimonies of how the Lord used these ‘DDs’ to speak to them in their times of need. Recently he also came up with the monthly printed edition of the DD which so many are using for their morning quiet time. The go-getter that he is, he continuously thinks of achieving more for our Lord. Jacob also recently earned his Master in Divinity degree from Union Biblical Seminary, Pune.
Jacob is married to Stella who also is also active in AFCI’s ministry. They live in Ahmedabad, Gujarat with their two daughters.
