Pastor Sam Daniel was born in India and has been planting and pastoring churches in
India, Saudi Arabia and Canada for the last 25 years. While ministering in Saudi Arabia
for a period of 21 years, he was arrested twice by the Saudi government together with
Religious Police(Muttawas) and then deported in 2005 for the cause of the Gospel. As
Paul says in Galatians 6:16 “for I bear in my body the marks of Jesus Christ”, Pastor Sam considers it a privilege and opportunity to serve the Lord.
Pastor Sam is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. The rapidly growing Raleigh-Durham area with its Universities and Technology companies offer us the unique opportunity and privilege to reach out to a large section of our young generation with the Gospel. Pastor Sam moved to the Raleigh area in 2011 and the Lord has laid a burden in his heart to reach out to the unreached in the Cary-Morrisville area. Prior to moving to North Carolina he was the senior Pastor at Zion Gospel Assembly in Toronto, Canada. As Romans 8:31 says “If God be for us, who can be against us?” . There is no greater assurance and comfort we need than to know that God is with us. That is how the prophet Isaiah described God in the old testament - “Immanuel” meaning “God With Us”. Pastor Sam and his wife Ammu are currently settled in Oxford, North Carolina and are passionate about reaching out to the unreached with the love and message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
