Rev. P.J. Thomas & Aleyamma Thomas

Founders of Sharon Fellowship Church

Hello & Welcome

     Sharon Fellowship Church was originally founded by Rev. P.J. Thomas in Kerala, India in the early 1950s. While teaching Comparative Religion at Wheaton College, he felt the calling to return home to India. He settled in Thiruvilla, Kerala, India after purchasing a property that would eventually become the Sharon compound. Over the years, members who had immigrated to the United States desired a more formal organization and fellowship.

    SFCNA had its beginning in the heart of a few believers at the 1995 Pentecostal Conference of North American Keralites (PCNAK) in Dallas. They prayed and decided to start Sharon Fellowship Churches in various cities in North America for the glory of God. The mission of SFCNA is to fulfill the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20) by engaging in evangelism, church planting, missionary work, and the promotion of charitable and educational activities both in the United States and abroad. Currently, there are SFCNA affiliated churches throughout the United States.

    After the passing of Rev. P.J Thomas, Rev. Dr. T.G. Koshy took over as President and continued the growth and expansion of the Sharon Fellowship organization for seventeen years.  Now, the organization is overseen by the Rev. P.J. Thomas’s son, Rev. John Thomas. SFCNA (Sharon Fellowship Churches of North America) is overseen by Rev. Dr. Tinku Thompson (President) and his team.
