SVS came to exist in the month of June in 2001 as the partial fulfilment of the vision the Lord gave in the heart of Rev. Dr. Gnanadas Danam which was birthed in 1994. While studying at SABC, he got a burden and concern for the marginalized and out cast once in the land of India which propelled his heart to work for their holistic development. As a result of this, a charitable trust was registered on 15th May 2001 called "Global Socio-Educational and Charitable Trust" and a training centre was started by the name 'Sathya Veda Seminary', to equip and send people for the community and social development in India and other nations of the world. 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 and other nations. This training program started to grow, and graduates moved to different regions, contributing towards the moral and spiritual life of common people. After a long period of prayer and tireless effort, by God’s grace, we were able to buy 1 ½ acres land in 2010. As of now, Satya Veda Seminary is functioning in a 4 acres campus. A three-storied building with a rooftop has been constructed with all the required facilities of Library, classrooms, office, dormitory etc. A second building is on the verge of completion to accommodate more students and have more facilities.
A team of well qualified and committed faculty under the fabulous leadership of Dr Gnanadas Danam the Director works tirelessly to cater to the vision and ethos of the institution. The institution has gained a good reputation in the Indian goal spectrum. Student community represents almost all states of India with a roll of 200 are being trained every year. The courses offered are Certificate in Theology, C.P.T (One-year training for Community workers), Diploma in Theology, Bachelor of Theology and Master of Divinity. The graduates are into various spheres of life getting on to become better community developers and social transfers imparting the knowledge of God’s unchanging Word to impact the lives of people.
