Dr. Spurgeon’s Bio

Dr. D. S. Spurgeon was born on October 29, 1932, into a Christian family and brought up in the fear of the Lord. His father was a great man of God who served as a pastor for many years and later as an evangelist. Dr. Spurgeon had a personal experience of salvation when he was sixteen years old. From that time, he has faithfully followed the Lord.

Receiving his Masters Degree in Mathematics, he began in 1956 teaching at Christian colleges in South India and continued for the next eighteen years.

Since that time, he has been ministering as an evangelist throughout India and abroad.
