CP and Ann, Ministering in Kenya, Africa
(with Pastor Samuel interpreter)

Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza”.
This is desert. So, he arose and went… (Acts 8:26-27)

Ann has a very distinctive message of Jesus Christ, one that attracts & engages everyone she meets. This simple message exemplifies Joy, Grace, and Passion for God and life. Born and raised in Washington DC, she spent her early teen years with her uncle who was the Pastor of the Church of God in Christ. During this time questions such as those that many young people face today came to the surface. Questions such as – is there more to life, how can I still love God and be engaged in this world? The scripture says in Matthew 7:7 that “ask it shall be given, seek you shall find, and knock it shall be opened”. This came to fruition in Ann’s life.

Ann finds the most exciting part is seeing God at work, and how He uses simple conversations to bring togetherness, healing, and growth. She decided to amplify these conversations for His glory even more. She is a graduate of the Crenshaw Christian Center’s Ministry Training Institute and completed training at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). As one of the teachers for the International School of Ministry (ISOM), she taught at the Nehemiah Business School on doing ‘Business God’s Way’. Ann has participated in numerous worldwide missions, including the RZIM mission week in Kenya (Africa) and with the Haggai Institute in India where she spoke at successful companies and many mission churches. She loves to speak on anything that avails the opportunity to preach the gospel. As a Minister, she continues to conduct bible studies and teach at several churches and conferences. Ann is also a pivotal figure and diligent supporter of worldwide missions, children’s hospitals, women’s shelters, and orphanages across the United States, Africa, and India.

CP was born and raised in India a region that is well-acquainted with multiple dichotomies rooted in intellectual, traditional, religious, and existential beliefs. The many unanswered big questions of life on human purpose, suffering, and religion have always burdened his heart. Growing up in a religious Hindu Brahmin home he attended the many pujas and followed specific worship creeds. To be a Hindu was an aspect of the Indian identity. The pursuit for God however led him to study the Bhagavad Gita, teachings of Buddha, and then the Quran & Hadith. While the religious stories were all fascinating, it left the disposition that it was sincerity and not the truth that mattered in them. His journey to Christianity began with the Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) and a few years later, he was touched by the love of a Christian girl (his now wife Ann) whose infectious radiance and simplicity for God led CP to become a Christian.

Divine Intersections are Spirit led life directions & relationships we can describe only as God-given. They give us opportunities to be used by God in His service. Most times the way they happen is so unique that it’s almost impossible not to see God in the process.

It was Truth and love that drew them both to the Lord.
Jesus Christ said,

“I am the way and the truth and the life: No one comes to the Father except through me” (John. 14:6).

CP’s secular accomplishments including Post Graduate honors and success in Business are eclipsed by God’s call. He graduated from the Crenshaw Christian Center’s Ministry Training Institute and completed training at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). As one of the teachers for the International School of Ministry (ISOM), his teaching at the Nehemiah Business School has been recorded & translated into multiple languages as a flagship program for ‘Building Business God’s Way’. At the Abundant Living Bible College part of one of the largest non-denominational churches in California, he served in the teaching of Christian Apologetics. He is an Ordained Minister and continues to conduct bible studies and teach at several Churches, Colleges, Apologetics Events, and Conferences. Globally CP is a regular invitee and a speaker at the RZIM annual conferences in Kenya, Africa and in India with the Haggai Institute locally. He is a pivotal figure in the formation and capacity building of Economic Development Corporations (EDC), Community Outreaches, and the Denarius Mentorship Program.
