St. Andrew’s College, Gorakhpur, named after Saint Andrew, one of the first twelve disciples of Jesus Christ, had a humble beginning in 1828 as a Mission School by the Church Missionary society to provide education primarily to Christian children but also to others irrespective of creed that voluntarily joined it.
The foundation of the Church Missionary Society (C.M.S.) in 1699 was consequential to the Evangelical Revival, with the role of great grandfather of Indian Evangelical Revival being ably played by the Rev. Charles Simeon. He was the Fellow of King's College and the Vicar of the Holy Trinity College, Cambridge.
Even while the Church was on the verge of becoming just a salutary maxim and devoid of consciousness of missionary obligations, he went about with his fiery zeal for the missionary enterprise in India. During the last decade of the 18th century, Rev. Charles had the rare opportunity of influencing young potential zealots of the University towards a revival of missionary zeal.
