Origin

Long back the Rt. Rev. A.G.Jebaraj, the first Indian Bishop of the erstwhile undivided Tirunelveli Diocese declared his God given vision in the words, “It is nor right for the Tirunelveli Diocese to rejoice and be satisfied seeing the growth of IMS(Indian Missionary Society) alone”, quoting the verse, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes” (Isa. 54:2) towards an intensive venture for Evangelization. Accepting the challenge of the bishop, each Pastorate and each Church Council came forward to establish a Mission Field in the unreached northen parts of the then Diocese and northern Tamilnadu respectively. In that context on behalf the South Tirunelveli Church Council the missionary work at Pennagaram, Dharmapuri district was started in 1972.

When the structure of the Tirunelveli Diocese was revised in 1975, the South Tirunelveli Church Council was divided into three Council namely South-east, East, and South. These three Councils together with the names “SE.E.S” carried on the Pennagaram mission work.

On the formation of the new Thoothukudi-Diocese, it was decided that all the congregations of our Diocese would join together in carrying on the Mission Work. Within the vision to move on to an intensive venture for Global Evangelization GLOBAL MISSIONARY SOCIETY was born on 28th June, 2005.
