I was born on the 11th of May, 1964, in a Christian family. My parents knew Christ as their personal savior and Lord and regularly attended Church. Coming from such a background, it was only natural that I came to the saving knowledge of Christ at the young age of 13 during a Gospel meeting when I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior, as the scripture Says in (Jn: 1:12, Rom: 10:9, Eph: 2:8), I, commited my life to the Lord, the year was 1977 on April 10th, and I decided that day that I will give my entire life over to Godís service and enter the ministry as a full time servant of the Lord.
After the completion of my 10th grade, I joined Maranatha Bible College to pursue my diploma in Theology (D.Th). On completion of my D.Th. course, I joined Calvary Baptist Bible College of Seminary to pursue my Bachelor of Theology (B.Th) course. It was during this course that I begin my ministry in the city of Bangalore. I started a ministry to reach out to children with the Gospel by conducting Sunday schools and Vacation Bible School in the summers. Many of the children that I ministered to came to the saving knowledge of Christ. These children in turn brought their parents along with them for these meetings that I conducted and thus began my Church ministry with the establishing of Calvary Baptist Church (a fundamental, non-chrismatic, and pre-millennium) in the year 1993 which I been pastoring since that time.
My wife, Clara Joyce, whom I married in the year 1988, and I have walked hundred of miles in the city of Bangalore and surrounding villages reaching out to lost souls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The going has been tough, we have faced difficulties and financial hardship, but despite all this we have pressed onward with Godís help and we have seen countless number of people coming to the saving knowledge of Christ and this has brought us great joy over the years.
The establishment of a small Church in a remote village called Arrour; located about 175 Km from Bangalore city has been one of the most momentous occasions in our life. There are around 15 saved Church members and a number of other village folk who attended the meetings at the Church which is conducted at the Pastors house.
I have also established a school called Calvary Baptist School to cater to the educational and spiritual needs of children from economically backward class people. Along with the school curriculum, the word of God is also taught. We have a full time staff numbering 5 catering to the needs of around 50 students.
I have also been able to establish a Church in a village called Avalahalli on the outskirts of Bangalore city. The Church has around 20 saved members and meets at a believerís home for the Church services.
My ambition is to establish the many fundamental Baptist and bible believing churches in many parts of India. Pray for my wife, son Caleb, daughter Cassia & me as we serve His Majestic name preaching and making disciples.
