Dr. Spiros Zodhiates


spirosRome was not built in a day, nor was AMG India. Seeing the work of Evg. Dr. John David, Dr. Spiros Zodhiates associated himself with his work. Dr. Spiros Zodhiates was born of Greek parents, on the island of Cyprus. After completing his Greek education, he joined American University in Cairo, Egypt. Later, he studied B.Th. Degree from National Bible Institute (now Shelton College) in New York and M.A. from New York University. In 1978 he earned his Doctor of Theology degree from Luther Rice Seminary of Jacksonville, Florida.

He is also the recipient of several honorary doctorates. In 1946, he came to the United States, at the invitation of AMG International, of which he became President in 1966. Under his leadership, AMG International focussed on Newspaper Evangelism, to spread the message of Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, in many countries in the world. In 1968, in a chance meeting with Evg. Dr. John David, Dr. Spiros asked him to start Newspaper Evangelism in India. The cost was to be shared by both AMG International and John David. This was the starting point for starting AMG India International in 1968.
