Ipe Mathai, a rebellious runaway youth lived on the street struggling to continue a life without hope and belonging. Unaware of his purpose and the love God had for him, he began to realize the potential of God’s love and the assurance of His provision through first hand experiences with God. His confrontation with God, the Healer,began which a miraculous healing of his blinded eye and deliverance from many physical ailments. This was the start of his personal relationship with Jesus Christ and he was able to witness many miracles and healings in the lives of others as well as his own. His professional career of caring for the sick and suffering developed the reality of what life entailed. It brought a deeper understanding of God’s unlimited power in both spiritual and physical aspects of life. As a strong and faithful Christian he supported local churches as well as shouldering the gospel work in many parts of the world. In 1993, Ipe received a personal calling from God to go back to his people. Already established in his professional and business career, Ipe sought further guidance in this calling from God. In response, he made several missionary trips to India and other countries in support of many ministries in these areas. In 1996 at a Pastors and Leaders Conference hosted by the late Pastor John Osteen of Lakewood Church, Ipe’s passion for mission and outreach work was ignited as his calling was confirmed to reach out to those in need of hope. He was convinced that the ultimate answer to one’s life could only be found in Jesus Christ. The following year in 1997, Mathai Outreach Ministries, Inc. was registered, as a charitable organization with a passionate desire to share the abounding love and grace of Jesus Christ to the unsaved.

After traveling to many city, it was in his hometown of Pandalam, India that the ministry was established. In the following years, God’s promise was fulfilled through the number of believers touched with the message of Christ, the number of baptisms, and the establishment of several churches in various part of India. Today our ministry is actively involved in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra. Ipe his wife, Susie, continue to travel to various countries with an ever passion to share the message of Jesus Christ.
