Pastor Sampath Raja was the first born Son to Mrs & Apostle M. Rajendran. Apostle M. Rajendran is one of the great and powerful church leaders in India, founder and President of Good News Mission and the senior pastor of one of the large churches in India.
Pastor Sampath grew up in the fear of the Lord with 4 brothers and two sisters. Pastor Sampath’s parents had dedicated all their children for God’s ministry and the call of the Lord was made clear to Pastor Sampath when he was 18 years old by a dramatic and supernatural encounter with the Lord.
He then went to Southern Asia Bible College, India and completed his Bachelor of Theology (B.Th). When he was in his last year of B.Th, the Lord specifically called him to reach out to the young people in India.
