I was born on 12 th June 1986 hails from a small village called Kandlagunta, Andhra Pradesh, near the sea shore of the Bay of Bengal. I am the third son among four brothers and one sister. At the age of 15 I accepted Christ as my personal Saviour and Lord. I dedicated my life for Christ, almost 6 years after my salvation. I was reluctant about the call of God and tried in many ways to continue my secular studies and get away from the ministry. But the LORD wanted me and never let me go.
THE CALL: The year 2005 was a turning point in my life. While attending a youth meeting, the servant of God spoke from Jeremiah 1:5, and reminded me about the call of God. The servant of God told me that God wanted me to be in the ministry, then the alter call was given from Isaiah 6:7 which challenged me with the Lord’s call from the text, “who will go for us?” I was touched and replied to the Lord, “Lord I will go.”
I dedicated my life totally for the cause and the call of Christ and promised Him to follow life-long. The same year I went down to Kerala and joined a Bible college to equip myself for the future ministry of my Master from 2005-2009 and completed my B.D.
I got married to Praveena Eunice who has the same vision. we are blessed with baby boy we named him Timothy Dalton we as a young couple doing the Lord’s ministry unceasingly for the glory of God, uphold us in your prayers so that we might become a great blessing to many through the ministry of Grace & Truth Ministries.
We also had great desire to start a church in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. The Lord answered our prayers and enabled us to start GRACE & TRUTH BIBLE CHURCH at Uppal east side of Hyderabad, 20 Km. from the Airport. As a young couple we are toiling relentlessly for the growth of the church. At present more than 40 families are attending and worshiping the church. Presently we are worshiping in a rented house.
After returning from Bible college in 2009, the Lord opened a way to work with Baptist church Hyderabad as pastor for 2 years. During this time the congregation increased from 40 members to 260. I baptized 163 believers who accepted the Lord under my ministry and counseling. I had many opportunities to preach, teach, encourage and counsel hundreds of youngsters during these years.
The Lord spoke to me very clearly in the year 2011 January 9th and led me to start a ministry called Grace & Truth Ministries.
