MarGregorios Orthodox Christian Student Movement (MGOCSM) is the studentwing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. The students and seniorleaders of our church who were residing in Madras (Chennai), India inthe early part of this century felt the need for an organization tobring together our students in various colleges and high schools witha view to deepening their spiritual life and to create in them alivelier senseoffellowship. So they founded the Syrian Student Conference in 1907 andfirst conference was convened on January 1st, 1908 at Tiruvalla,Kerala, India. Annual conferences have been a regular feature sincethat year. The Syrian student conference, the parent organization,assumed its present name MGOCSM in 1960. Ours is the oldest Christianstudent organization in India. Our motto is Worship – Service –Study.

There arecollege student’s wing, high school student’s wing, Universityteachers association, School teachers association, Medical Auxiliary,Technical Auxiliary, Missionary forum, Literary forum, Publicationwing, and etc.
Thegreatest contribution the movement had made to the church is that, ithas prepared and provided able and outstanding leaders for his/herservice from time to time.
