Johniel John Edward - Vicar & Evangelist

Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21

I never imagined I would serve God as a full-time minister in the United States. But as we read in the scriptures, HIS purpose alone will prevail and I am so privileged to serve God in this part of the world. My heart goes out not only for the Indian community that is growing exponentially here but also to other immigrant communities as well. I am here to serve these people by sharing Jesus with them.

I am from the city of Madurai, South India, born and brought up in a traditional Christian family. My wife (Lalitha) got an opportunity to work here, so she and I, with our son (Jeffrey) came here to CT in 2015. God has blessed us with our precious daughter (Jessandra) in 2021. I am currently enrolled in Ethnic Institute of Immigrant Theology (EIIT) program at Concordia Seminary, St.Louis.

I love spending time with people and going out with my family and friends.

I am a die-hard soccer fan and love to play cricket, soccer and volleyball.
