I’m Paresh and I was born and brought up in a traditional Bengali Hindu family. As a Young man, I was living a miserable life and was seeking peace. On 20th July 1998, I heard about Jesus, when I was listening to a radio program. Matthew 11:28 touched my heart where Jesus calls people with heavy heart that he can give peace and rest. I felt rest when I responded to the call. I began to listen more about Jesus on radio. Also I was attending a local church in my area. The pastor of the church encouraged me to go for 6 months Discipleship training in Bihar. I attended discipleship training for six months in 2000. I understood that I am a sinner and I need forgiveness, which only Jesus can provide. According to Acts 4:12, I believed in Jesus and obeyed him in Baptism on 11th August 2002.
I did my Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.) from Allahabad Bible Seminary during 2002 to 2005. I was married in 2006. We began our ministry in Kolkatta area in 2007. We were involved in church planting, and ministry among children. We are blessed with two sons, 11 years and 7 years old.
We were introduced to Disciple Making and Church Planning through one of our mutual friend. We learned and implemented and found this strategy very fruitful. Our ministry grew and the Lord enlarged our territory and helped us form a network, Transform East Alliance (TEA).
