My name is Kumar. I grew up on a conservative church. My grandfather was converted from Hinduism to Christianity and retired as a church administrator. Both of my parents were fervent Christians. They loved (and obeyed) every aspect (including the rules) handed down by the Church. Following my grandfather's footsteps, I also became a minister.
Over the last 25 years, I have been treated poorly by church members and church leaders. I have been lied to, stabbed in the back (too many times to count), and fired (long, unfair story, not worth digging up). Sadly, it took me a long time to realize my self-worth was dependent upon the Church, instead of finding my peace in God and digging deep into myself.
Here is what I discovered after some intense therapy... I have a love/hate relationship with the Church. I am grateful for my upbringing and theological foundation. In some ways, I outgrew the Church... if I am being honest.
As a minister, I felt it was my obligation to "make people Christian." I have changed my views on that. What I want, is for people to discover how much God loves them. Period. It isn't about converting you, or making you sign a membership document. Rather, I see myself as a coach, a mentor, a spiritual guide - giving you guidance to experience peace.
If you need direction in your spiritual journey, I want to be your pastor. If you feel confused, forgotten, bypassed, lost, let me navigate you back to a safe platform where you can rest for a while I sincerely want to serve as your spiritual director - so you are back on the journey towards God. No gimmicks. Take some time looking over this website, and prayerfully consider reengaging with God, if you aren't already.
