I come from a large, very good Christian family. Both my parents were teachers. When my father retired from service, I was just eight years old. Since he could not get his pension, our family was going through a financial crisis. This gave me an opportunity to join a Christian hostel, where I had my entire education.

In 1981, when I was studying S.S.C., I had an opportunity to attend a 3 day camp conducted in Courtallam, Tamil Nadu. On the second day of the camp, the Lord spoke to me through a verse from Rev. 10:6, “There will be no more delay”. When the preacher, Mr. P. Samuel spoke about the second coming of Christ, I was touched by the Lord, and the same day I confessed my sins and invited Jesus into my heart. This has been the greatest day in my life, the day I became the child of God.

Before coming here, I never knew anything about this cathedral till Rev. Dr. Dasan Jeyaraj told me, in December 2002. Since we are friends, he had shared with me about this cathedral and placed before me an opportunity to join this cathedral as a presbyter. Having completed my B.D. in 1991, I was eligible to become a presbyter. But the Lord led me to work in the same organizations where I grew up. I worked among the children and youth, preached in the nearby churches and conducted services and meetings. Though I was doing all these, there was a deep desire in my heart to become a pastor. I had shared this with my wife and we both had prayed for a few years about this, till I received an invitation from St. Thomas’ (SPG) Tamil Cathedral.

In 1984 while I was with Operation Mobilization India, I gave my life for full time ministry in a missionary conference conducted by Indian Evangelical Mission at Bangalore. I had received the call of God through the message preached by Late Rev. Dr. Theodore Williams. I did my Bachelor of Theology at south India Biblical Seminary, Bangarapet and my Bachelor of divinity at Union Biblical Seminary, Pune.
