SVS came to exist in the year June 2001 as the partial fulfillment of the vision in the heart of Rev. Gnanadas Danam which was birthed in 1994. While he was studying at SABC, he got a burden and concern for the holistic development of people of India in all aspects of their lives. As a result of this, a charitable trust was registered in 15th May 2001 under the name "Global Socio Educational and Charitable Trust" and a training center was started, by the name 'Sathya Veda Seminary', to equip and send people for the work of community and social development of India and South Asia. SVS started functioning in a hired building at Trivandrum, with seven students. The first graduation was done in 2004, and afterwards every year new graduates are sent out to different parts of India, especially to the North of India.
This training work started to grow and the graduates started doing great works. As people came to know of the good work being done by our graduates and also because of the high quality of training we started getting support from far and wide. Through patronage of various people we were able to buy land in 2010, where Satya Veda Seminary is now functioning.
A three storied building with a roof top has been constructed with all the required facilities of Library, class rooms, office, dormitory etc. A team of well qualified and experienced teachers under the leadership of Rev. GnanadasDanam the Director, and Rev. L. Salim Raj the Principal, work with dedication to train up the students along with a team of dedicated faculty.
The institution has gained a good reputation in the regions wherever it was functioning earlier and is functioning now.The student community represents almost all states of India with a roll of 80 students at present. The courses offered are Certificate in Theology, Diploma in Theology, Bachelor of Theology and Master of Divinity. The graduates are into various spheres of life getting on to become better Teachers, Agriculturists, Businessmen, Social Workers, Community workers etc.Our former students have been the primary means for us to get new students.
