About Word & Power Ministries:
Word & Power Ministries (WAP) started in the year 2010 in a small room in a coffee shop in Annanagar, Chennai by A.V. Samson Sugunakumar and his team consisting of Rajiv R G, Prisca Charles and Boaz Athisayaraj. The ministries started when the Spirit of God led Samson to preach the Gospel of Grace and Love to the people of the world. Thus the fellowship grew to form the Word & Power Ministries.
