Born to a non-christian family, Jay grew up in Kashmir (NI) as an air-force kid. Cricket was his first love till he encountered the Lord Jesus at the age of 18. At 27, no longer able to deny the Lord’s call to shepherd His people, Jay founded the Ark Victory church with 5 believers.
Jay carries a great passion for Word of God and believes in the fact that ‘a day spent without the presence of God is a waste indeed’. His heart is to build lives, equip, disciple people and see them take their rightful position in the Lord’s House.
Today, Jay and his wife Anjali with their two young boys, Shawn and Adoni, serve a young congregation of over 400 plus members.
Anjali was raised in a Christian home in North India but she found it difficult to relate with God who could not be seen or touched. As an answer to a simple prayer, prayed in a youth camp, the Lord touched (tangibly) her and revealed Himself as the Lord. From thereon began her journey of knowing God and making Him known.
In 1988, she came to Chennai as a missionary. Her heart is to share hope with the hopeless and see them planted and rooted in the House of God.
Along with Jay, she serves a young generation of 400 plus members.
