Bernardshaw in Action: Proclaiming the Word of God with Action Fulfills the Mission

Pastor Sebastian Bernardshaw experienced the power of God’s words through the Bible and was called to share it with people. In 2009, he started the Church of the Word Discipleship Training Centre in Chennai, South India.

Pastor Bernardshaw graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature, Master’s degree in Social Work, Discipleship Training School and School of Worship, and obtained a Masters in Theology and a Ph.D. He is now serving as pastor and principal of Dayspring Theological University.

His missionary work focuses on church planting, pastoral and leadership training, discipleship training, and a Bible college. They actively create ways to share the Gospel through film, sports, and youth ministry.

Part of the mission is to attend to the needs of widows and abandoned children, through free education, medical missions, and clean water projects to tribal communities.

Pastor Bernardshaw and his ministry have been able to send flood relief in 6 places and conducted Gospel meetings and mini crusades in 10 villages. Last November, 13 students graduated from the Bible School who are now helping in fulfilling the mission. Since 2009, they have been able to build churches in 2 villages.

A lot has been accomplished, but Pastor Bernardshaw believes that a lot is still to be done. They are currently seeking donations for the construction of a temporary shelter for the Bible School, assistance for the needs of 5 pastors, transportation and borewell projects to address the need for clean water.
