“And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” Ephesians: 4:11, 12.
Gethsemane Gospel Mission was first started in the name, Gethsemane Prayer Team, a group of young men started to pray every day in the sea shores. If there is prayer God will definitely pour his burden, as the result of continues prayer and fellowship God filled those young men with a bigger burden and God poured his heart to them to carry gospel to the Unreached people groups. Later, Gethsemane Prayer Team turned to become Gethsemane Gospel Prayer team and started to preach the Gospel to the villages in Tamil Nadu. God by His grace helped those young men to find places where there are no churches, and to evangelize the village and build churches. First church of GGM was established on 2, October 1994 at Ammayapanallur which is in Kanchipuram District. Later, God blessed His ministry by multiplying His church and helping in establishing new churches in many villages around Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry.
In the year 2000, according to the verse Matthew 13:12 “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”, As a part of God’s own wish, God helped us to send missionaries to Himachal Pradesh and to various parts of North India. Later that same year Gethsemane Gospel Prayer team was named as “Gethsemane Gospel Mission”.
In the year 2004, God spoke with Pr. Paul Moses and encouraged him to start a Church in his home town, Palavakkam; Chennai, South India: to support the missionaries in prayer and by giving. As a mission based organization it is very much necessary to have a strong prayer background. With this clear vision from God the church was first started with a small gathering of less than 50 people above his home. The church grew and multiplied, God miraculously moved us to a bigger place.
