As our ministry is growing rapidly all over India and abroad, we need several individuals and organizations to be our ministry partners in one of the following ways.
By serving as our representative in your city, state or country.
By serving as consultant, as and when we need your services.
By sending a financial contribution towards our ministry regularly or occasionally.
By contributing any material or equipment that could be used in the ministry.

TGTSM is dedicated to the glory of God and to the Service of mankind. We pray and hope that you will have the same experience.

Those who have completed/obtained a (any) degree award from TGTSM can also take up another course and get degrees from GTOU.

I congratulate all the Degree awardees and express my gratefulness to the Chief Guest and Guest of Honorís for gracing this occasion and all the staff for their efforts.

Kindly pray and support this ministry by extending your cooperation.
