Kêrygma is a non – profit, founded by Jacob & Sheela Isaac in August 1997. The ministry was born out of a vision that Jacob and Sheela Isaac received to communicate God’s love to today’s urban populace, particularly the youth. The very evening Jacob and Sheela lost their second baby John, another ‘John’, a young musician came visiting the Isaacs. Through this simple encounter, God spoke to Jacob & Sheela – ‘John’ became the metaphor for several needy young people. Since that time, many young people have come, stayed and moved on – refreshed, nourished and impacted by God’s love. Kerygma thus is a story of hope that continues to change the lives of many.
In Obedience to God’s call, they offered their “five loaves and two fish” the space above their home to start the “Coffee house” a hangout for young people in the city for several years.. Roof top acoustics, box guitars, unrehearsed DJ and hot coffee was the feel of the place. Coffee House became a place where young people could unwind and just talk about life.
Salt of the New Generation.
“To permeate the urban society with the Gospel of Christ using media and creative arts, and to provide an environment for spiritual growth and personal vision.”

Staff and volunteers passionate to reach youth inspire one another to give their time, money and talents to impact young lives.
They lead in the music ministry, in leadership building, in theatre productions, logistics for events, counseling or mentoring according to their strengths.
Even our board members have volunteered to train youth workers.
Our volunteers give us the bandwidth to reach wider into schools, churches and organisations and together we are able to reach many more young lives.
