During May 2012, Duke Jeyaraj and Evangelin Duke were invited by Pastor Terry Pragasam and Pastor John Pragasam of Bethel IPA Church Coimbatore to minister in the youth camp of the English section of their church. A vibrant bunch of youth travelled to a Bible College perched beside gorgeous hills just outside the city of Coimbatore looking forward to an intimate meeting with God! And as both Duke and Evan brought relevant messages on topics such as preparing to receive from God, overcoming temptations, Holy Spirit, etc., there was a mighty move of God. Many youth gave their lives back to Jesus. Some spoke in tongues for the first time. There were tears shed in the altar. The questions of the youth were answered in a clear manner by the pastors and the guest speakers. So much about the youth camp which was for the Google Generation youth. There was another camp for the Google Generation couples in a beach resort in the outskirts of Chennai that Duke and Evan were part of this August. Daniel Pravin and his wife, Ruby, warmly invited Duke and Evan to minister in this couples’ camp. Duke preached messages to the couples from different churches who gathered on topics such as “The Cause and Cure for Curses!”, “Why and How of the Family Altar!”, etc. Evan addressed the grown children who had also come to this camp on topics close to their heart.  Duke and Evan combined to conduct fun games such as “Blind Volleyball” and entertaining quizzes (which also edified!).  In short, the couples and families had a whale of a time studying the Word, strolling across to the beach, etc! “We are still continuing to have the regular family prayer we started the day the camp ended!” was one testimony that Duke and Evan received from one of the campers months after the camp got over!



Pastors of different local churches across India were kind to invite, Duke Jeyaraj, “the Google Generation Bible Truth presenter”,   in the recent months to share God’s Word during their respective church’s Sunday morning services. In the month of May, Duke shared the  message in the Bethel IPA Church, one of the largest churches in Coimbatore. His message, “Bible Truth From Magic IPL-5 Moments!” was different and daring. In the month of July, Duke shared God’s Word in the New Life AG Church in Secunderabad – a church of over 4000 people. This church also happens to be the Duke family’s local church. Duke’s message from the book of Malachi, “Marks of a Backslidden Believer!” brought conviction and challenge to the congregation. The church media team referred to this message as ‘the slap of love’ in their Facebook post. In the month of September, Duke preached God’s Word in the St. John’s Evangelical Church in Gunadala, Vijayawada, of the Metropolitan Mission. Duke’s message from the book of Hebrews titled, “Let us…” was god-sent to the believers who gathered. “I still can’t forget the message you preached the last time you preached here – in 2010. And this morning you have preached another unforgettable message!” – this is what one church elder told Duke following the church service. In the month of October, Duke preached in the Living Springs English Church just off the IT Highway in Chennai. His message from the book of Esther, “Two cousins in Multinational Company Service” stirred the hearts of the students from the African Continent and the modern young working professionals who gathered there.

Duke’s wife, Evangelin, was invited to speak by a group of single women, all Google Genners who working in top corporate companies,  in Hyderabad from different churches who were seeking God’s face with regard to their future (August 2012). She blessed this hungry group with a honest message titled, “How long?” She spent time praying for each of them. They were greatly encouraged. She was also invited by Pearl City Church, a leading church in the city of Hyderabad,  to speak in a workshop for working women at their annual Women’s Conference called “Shine Conference” (September 2012). Evan, challenged her hearers – a bunch of working women from different part of Andhra Pradesh – with a message titled, “Shining or Sleeping?” Evan also led in a quiz with rounds from the Bible, Church History and the Secular World on the theme of “Shine” to make every moment of that workshop interesting and inspiring.  Preeti Iona helped her in the logistics of this workshop voluntarily. Evan also got to counsel young people – via phone conversations, via email, via Facebook, via direct talk, etc – who opened their problems to her during the last few months. She gave counsels that were soundly scriptural and thoroughly practical.



Duke Jeyaraj conducts a Bible Study at his base in Hyderabad, every month on a selected Sunday evening, month after month. In the period of February to October 2012 (nine months) Duke lead nine different Bible Studies. The following books, at the rate of one full book per month, were summarized for the Google Generation which gathered by Duke: Colossians (March), I Thessalonians (April), 2 Thessalonians (May),  Luke (July), Acts (August), Hebrews (September) and James (October). Duke used the name of the Bible book as an acronym for that book’s message and uploaded the outlines so developed onto The video recordings of these messages are available on Young people who were from different companies  such as Dell, Deloitte, Axis Bank, Infosys, TCS, IBM, Mahindra Satyam, HSBC, Cognizant, IBM, Amazon, etc attended. People accepted Jesus, received the Holy Spirit baptism, learnt how to overcome temptation, etc, in these rare, rocking studies.  A fun game/quiz and worship preceded the Word time. Preeti Iona led in worship superbly. In the month of Feb., Duke brought out lessons on sex, love, marriage, from the story of Moses and Zipporah. In the month of June, Duke led a Bible Study that brought Bible lessons from the IPL-5 .

Duke Jeyaraj
Young people from 19 Indian States. Over 1500 of them atleast. From Kutch to Kohima. From Nagarcoil to New Delhi. From Madurai to Mumbai. From Gurgoan to Goa. Were all there at the National Youth Conference of the Assemblies of God in Hyderabad during October 23-25, 2012. It was indeed a great joy and a wonderful privilege for me to minister to them along with choice servants of God across India and the world - thanks to warm invitation of my local church pastors and National Youth Ministry leaders of AG - Rev. Valson Varghese and Rev. Younus Samuel. "7 Google Generation Sins We Must Repent Of From Proverbs 7" was one message I preached to the whole crowd covering topics such as rebellion against elders, flirty talk, petting, actual premarital sex, starting with Marlon Samuel's batting in the T20 World Cup Final. "Jesus loves you just the way you are. There is no doubt about this. But he loves you far too much to leave you just like that. He wants to transform you. That's why he destined that you hear a message from Proverbs 7 in this convention," I told my young friends. The altar was crammed with young people getting right with God, surrendering their lives to Jesus afresh, fighting back their tears. It was God's Work. During the workshop time, I could teach the young people from God's Word the secrets of overcoming temptation taking on very interesting questions along the way such as "Why did God even allow 'passing pleasure' in sin?" Also, was honored to be part of a Talk Show for the whole crowd, where God gave me grace to talk about perils of pornography and bust the biggest excuse people use to watch porn which is, "I am watching porn to learn sex technique which I will only use inside of marriage." Other hot topics were covered brilliantly by other experts and I thank God for each one of them. And yes, I also got to speak to over 40 pastors who also turned up for this event on "Ministering to the presentday youth understanding their culture!". In this talk I named the youth of today using five phrases - The Google Generation, The Gadget Generation, The Twitter Troupe, The Hitec Herd, The Facebook Folk - and explained who they were. I challenged my hearers to minister to them like Amos (attacking the sins they lived in boldly), like Jesus (wrapping Bible truth around contemporary events - Lk 13:1-5) and like Paul (including reference from the secular world in their messages - Acts 17). Two of my books, NO BEATING ABOUT THE BUSH STRAIGHT TALK ON HUSHED UP MATTERS and GOODNEWS FOR THE GOOGLE GENERATION, were enthusiastically bought by young people in this camp. Even as I am typing this, I am getting up to clap for the volunteers of the New Life AG Church, Hyderabad. Their tireless hard work was like a cog in the wheel for this historic, destiny-changing youth camp!



Rev. Dr. B. Ebenezer, the Executive Director of Metropolitan Mission, invited Duke Jeyaraj and Evangelin Duke to preach God's Word in the Mega Youth Festival Organised by his ministry in Vijayawada on 2 October 2012. Despite drizzle and the fact that two other major youth events were on in the city at the same time, over 2500 youth from Vijayawada and nearby towns filled a huge auditorium in the Loyola College in Vijayawada to be drenched in the rain of God's Word put in the context of young people and the issues they face.
The poster that invited youth for this program said: He looks at you(th); He loves you(th); He is Jesus. Mark 10.21. Duke's first message based on Jesus' interaction with the rich young ruler drove home the message that while Jesus loved young people just as they were, they had to repent from sin and come to him in faith. Duke explained the cross of Christ in this simple, direct, message which was interpreted into Telugu. And several of the youth, came forward, knelt down and accepted Jesus.
Evangelin Duke preached next. She walked and talked about how young people can develop God-pleasing relationships with people in their lives - parents, elders, friends and the opposite sex. The climax was of that authoritative Bible teaching session was her clear, crisp, captivating teaching on how young people should relate with the opposite sex with Biblical boundaries clearly drawn. At the back flap of their Bibles, the young people wrote statements that vowed to stay away from all forms of pre-marital sex as Evan challenged them to do it. At the end of that session, young people came forward to get right with God in the area of relationships.
In the final message of the Day, Duke began by the assertion that there was only one life to live and there was no chance of anyone being reborn as a fly (as the popular movie Eaga tries to suggest). So, that one life, had to be lived for Jesus, Duke pointed out. He used the Bible character of Amos to challenge youth to surrender that one life fully to Jesus and for his Kingdom work. Young people came forward to give their "one" life for Jesus and his great work. Moving scenes were witnessed.
For well over one hour after the meetings, some young people came to the stage to interact with Duke and Evan and pray with them. "I have decided to get involved in doing God's work passionately. Please pray for me."; "I want to beat temptation to lust and live a holy life. Please pray for me."; "Every word of what you spoke was to me. Please pray for me." - these were some of the requests from the young people's mouth. A man who was tormented by demons was prayed over by Evan Duke. After prayer, he got up as a calm man! The days of the supernatural did not end in the Bible days!
This program featured good exhortations for the young people from Rev. Dr. B. Ebenezer and Rev. Noel Ebenezer as well. Pastor's younger son, Bro. Silvanus Joel ably assisted by Bro.Vara Prasad, a teacher in a college, was the brain behind this mega youth festival.
Dale, 8, and Datasha, 4, were also with Duke and Evan during the event. Dale took notes of his parents' messages and took some pictures too!
Earlier, on the 30th September, Duke preached in the Sunday service of St. John Evangelical Church, Vijayawada. His message from the 'Let us' statements of the book of Hebrews challenged and encouraged the believers. There were requests that he make available the outline of this message which would bless any church congregation in this planet! In the same evening, Evangelin preached a practical message on how to shine for Jesus to the church congregation.
While en route to Vijayawada, Duke's T20 Gospel tract was handed over to several co-passengers. Preaching to large crowds is just one small way of doing ministry - Duke and Evan believe.
Pastor Ebenezer and his church team took wonderful care of Duke and his entire family during the fruitful ministry trip and they are grateful.
October 2, 2012, Vijayawada - 2500 young people were blessed in the Mega Youth Festival organised by the Metropolitan Mission in which Evan and Duke had the privilege of preaching God's Word in. Commitments for salvation, holy living and ministry galore. "This is God's Work. We rub our eyes - we can hardly believe it!" - Psa 118:23, The Message. Thank you very much for praying.
