Joseph and Leela


Joseph and Leela Joseph have been with IGM since May 13, 2008. Joseph and Leela have been teaching and equipping young people for the Lord’s work in different Bible Colleges for over 35 years. Joseph served as the principal of two Bible Colleges in India. His students have  become church planters, pastors, Bible Institute teachers, evangelists, missionaries, and Christian school teachers located all over India as well  as the United States and Canada. Romans 10:14, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” has been the motivating force for the Bible training they offer. Joseph started Baptist Preachers Institute to train pastors who never had any systematic Bible training. There are thousands of pastors who are laboring in village churches all over India and have never received any Bible College training. Joseph started offering short-term courses in different places in Orissa, India. They often receive requests from all over India for training programs for pastors who are already in service. Courses are conducted as the Lord provides funds. The Josephs are also helping Bible Colleges that are in need of teachers. Joseph also finds time to  preach in Gospel campaigns and Bible conferences.
