Meet a Church Planter: W. J. Subash in Dallas
W.J. Subash was in Dallas solely to pursue a Ph.D at Dallas Theological Seminary. But God had different plans. After several months at DTS, he realized a great need.
Acts 29: What happened? What was the need?
Subash: I realized that there were a huge number of unreached people groups from south Asia and the churches in DFW are not able to reach them with the Gospel. In March 2001, my wife Alice and I decided to start Bible study groups and invite Asian Indians for the study. God blessed this effort. Within a few months, we ended up conducting Bible studies in five different places. Our church is a result of our Bible study movement that started in March 2001.
Acts 29: What is your philosophy of evangelism in your church and what does that look like practically?
Subash: It is found in our mission statement: exalt, edify, and evangelize. In other words, when we exalt the Triune God corporately and edify one another intentionally, evangelism must take place on its own. I emphasize in our church that what we do during the weekend is the climax of what we do during the week.
Acts 29: How can we pray for you?
Subash: Please pray that we will be able to reach the south Asians who are predominantly Hindus.
