About the Organization

Tamil Village Gospel Mission was founded in the year 1979 by Bro.P.T.Christopher. It is an inter-denominational mission with a burden to reach people for Christ with majority of the work being done in remote villages. TVGM has been working in different states of India that includes Tamil speaking people in Tamilnadu, Oriya speaking people in Orissa and recently among Gujarathi speaking people in Gujarat. TVGM has done considerable work in Sri Lanka establishing the Sri Lanka Village Gospel Mission (SLVGM) and has taken efforts to start the first Tamil Church in Glascow, Scotland among the Tamil Speaking Sri Lankan Refugees. TVGM uses the Hundred Village Ministry strategy to reach people in villages and has developed the vision to reach at least one non-believer in every village of Tamilnadu or a people group, by constant Gospel distribution, strategic follow-up, discipleship training and church planting. So, TVGM with this vision has conducted nearly 300 “Hundred Village Ministry" programs so far and has covered nearly 30,000 villages in Tamilnadu.

Besides this Mission, TVGM has started two sister organizations; first one being Sri Lanka Village Gospel Mission (SLVGM) in Sri Lanka and second being Orissa Village Gospel Mission (OVGM) in Orissa. Through the years each of these organizations have become self-supporting.
