Life Story

Growing up, I did not have a personal relationship with Christ. Before college, being a Christian was more of a cultural notion rather than a saving faith. I encountered God in graduate school after a friend posed a question to me over dinner, and life has never been the same. Ezekiel 36:26 says, “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” I thank God for reaching out and saving me, despite myself.

I am married to Sudha, whom I met in 9th grade, and we have three daughters, Abby, Chloe and Ruthie.

Hope for The Village Church

My hope for The Village is that God will continue to use us an instrument in furthering His will and that we will continue to proclaim Jesus.
