Pastor Juxy (Mathew N. Thomas), President of Maranatha Full Gospel Church (MFGC), hails from an evangelic family in Thiruvalla and came to the U.A.E. more than 30 years ago. In 1985, while he and his wife Sr. Mercy were going through a cauldron of problems, Pr. Juxy came to know the true God through his more spiritually inclined wife.
Pr. Juxy answered God’s call on his life through his work of teaching and ministering in a small interdenominational prayer group. Many came to the Lord through these meetings and in time expressed the need to form a church to further their spiritual growth. After much prayer and seeking of the Lord’s direction, MFGC was formed with a vision to convert believers into true disciples of Christ - John.8:31, 32. What started as a three member Bible study in 1990 is now a full fledged church, serving the Lord through its many ministries, seeking to reach the lost and then establish them in faith.
Pr. Juxy serves as an exemplary leader, Spirit filled and focused and is the guiding light behind MFGC that has its presence all across Kerala, Middle East and USA. A gifted teacher who disciples his congregation to spiritual maturity, his positive energy, optimism and faith in Almighty God, is contagious and radiates to the members of the congregation.
