Samuel StephensSamuel Stephens graduated from the Madras Christian College with a Bachelor’s degree in Arts (B.A.) from the Madras University in 1973. He did his post-graduate theological studies with a major in Missions at the Union Biblical Seminary in Central India and graduated in 1977 from the Serampore University with a degree in Divinity. He graduated in April 2017 with a Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Global Perspectives from George Fox University.

Following his seminary education, he joined India Gospel League (IGL) and has served God through the organization for more than 35 years. The story of IGL begins with the conversion of Sam’s great-grandfather to the Christian faith through faithful missionaries. From there a vision was born to carry the gospel out to the least-reached and least-loved. Sam has provided leadership in different capacities for its various ministries and has been deeply involved with work at the grass roots level including church planting, rural and community development, child care and administration. When his father died in 1988, he became the President and third generation leader of IGL, standing firm to the original vision and calling to bring the gospel and love of Jesus Christ to unreached peoples. It is under Sam’s leadership and by God’s grace that there has been unprecedented and substantial growth with over 90,000 new churches planted since 1992.
