Rev. R. Jeyaraj Print

I was born and brought up in Kerala where my grandparents were working. In a family of seven children, fourRev. R. Jeyraj sisters and three brothers, I was the fourth. I studied Malayalam in the morning and Tamil in the afternoon till my third standard. When I was eight years old I lost my mother and my uncle who came for the funeral brought me to Tamilnadu and helped me to complete my fourth and fifth class. In 1975, I joined Bethel at Kovilpatti with the help of my pastor who later became the Bishop of Tirunelveli diocese Rt. Rev. Jason Dharmaraj. It was in Kovilpatti where I completed my education upto Plus Two. In the same year I was attending an “Overcomers’ Camp” at Courttalam and the Lord spoke to me and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

In 2002 we as a family moved to Hyderabad for me to join as a faculty of International College of Cultural Studies of OM India. In His time, the Lord gave me an opportunity to be ordained and minister in our Cathedral from May 2007. It was the call of God for me to have passion for the spiritual welfare of people through praying, preaching and counseling that motivated me.

I wanted to become a medical doctor at my early age therefore I took Science group in my higher secondary studies. But then the Lord called me for full time ministry and helped me to have my theological studies B.Th, B.D; and M.Th. I want to make use of every opportunity to study and I asked the Lord to give me an opportunity to do my doctoral studies abroad as I had enough exposure in India. The Lord has been so gracious and answered our prayers. I could not become a medical doctor to cure body related disease but the Lord made me a spiritual doctor to deal with soul related disease which also leads to physical illness. I seek your continued prayer support for my family and my studies.
