Rev. John Thomas is the president of this organization. It has a strong emphasis on theological scholarship. It currently has the only Pentecostal accredited seminary (Faith Theological Seminary, Manakkala, Adoor) that offers post-graduate degrees.
The reputation of the “Sharon” name came with two revival meetings that were documented in a reputed Indian newspaper and the opening of the Bible College at the Sharon compound in 1953. During a period of unrest in the Pentecostal churches in India, Pastor P.J. Thomas remained neutral and the Sharon compound was often used as a place of mediation. The church began to truly grow in the 1960’s and the mission oriented vision gives emphasis on theological scholarship as well as pioneer ministry.
- Sharon Fellowship Church, truly a church distinguished by separatism and energized by revivalism.
