The VM&MF was founded in the year 1963 by the Late Bro. B. Devadanam Joseph and the Late Bro. Albert Harper . It was the vision of these two men to establish a missionary society to cater to the spiritual and physical needs of Guntur and Prakasam districts of Andhra Pradesh.
Since then, VM&MF has remained faithful in taking the Gospel to the surrounding villages. And consequently our ministry has been extended to as many as 15 churches in this region so far. And there are about 106 villages including tiny hamlets around our town Vinukonda. It just shows that we have only scratched the surface. Our Primary goal is to plant Biblical churches in this region in obedience to Christ’s teaching. We have always believed that preaching the Gospel is more important than meeting the needs of the body as the Lord Jesus Christ says “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36). If we were to spread the Kingdom of God, it is only possible through planting the Biblical Churches in this region. To get the balance right, the Word of God precedes any help towards the poor and needy. On the other hand, it is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself spoke the parable of Good Samaritan insisting that one should help those who are in need. And we have also believed that offering a free diagnosis and free medicine by way of arranging free medical camps to needy patients can be worth the effort. Realizing the need, we have conducted many free medical camps and we still do. Currently VM&MF is functioning under the leadership of d Pastor B. Sunath Kumar and Pastor Samuel Boppuri. Both the pastors went to the London Theological Seminary, London,UK to do their theological studies. After the completion of their studies, both returned to serve Christ in Vinukonda with VM&MF.
