Pastor Suma started attending FGAG Children’s Church in 2000 as an eleven year old child and literally grew spiritually in FGAG. In 2001 at a special meeting held in FGAG, when Suma was only 12 years, while Rev. Dudley Thangiah was preaching to the young people, Suma distinctly heard the voice of God calling her to full-time ministry. In 2004 she started teaching in the Children’s Church.
Having finished her Bachelor of Commerce and with a keen desire to grow more in the Word of God she went to Southern Asia Bible College in 2010 and completed her Master of Divinity. On her graduation in 2013 she joined the staff of FGAG and helped in various ministries. The very next year God took her back to the Children’s Church as Pastor. At present Suma along with Pastor Rachel serve as Pastors of the Children’s Church.
Suma spends most of her time on her knees seeking the face of God. She believes her area of gifting is in the teaching ministry.
Suma’s burden is to reach out to kids and she considers it is a great joy to minister to them. Seeing the lives of little children being changed for the glory of God leaves her with utmost satisfaction.
Pastor Suma’s adoring parents, Panju and Leelavathy are very supportive of her. She has a sister, Uma who is married and has two children. She also has a brother, Kiran who serves the Lord in FGAG.
