Ps. Jeevan was born and brought up in a Christian family, his parents were very prayerful and god fearing people.
The reason he was named as Jeevan because he was born in the midst of life and death, there was no hopes whatsoever that he would live, but he was wrapped in prayers by his parents day and night. God answered their prayers and gave him life. He was a supernatural baby a gift from God to them.
His parents brought him up with much love and care. As days passed by he grew stronger and healthier, unfortunately at a very young age he was addicted to smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking weeds; and was also associated with the people who did illegal business. Money was all that mattered to him for which he would do anything to the extent of killing someone or even killed.
In the process of time, he went through the hardest phase of this life. He went through lot of rejections, loneliness, hatred, and was badly addicted to the things of the world, he tried to find peace and joy in what he was doing but instead of getting better he got worse.
He tried his best to break out of the addictions many times but was never successful, he knew the path he was in was the path to eternal destruction but he was helpless. Though he went to church occasionally but that couldn’t change himself.
One day he was invited to Mumbai for a gospel meeting, he went there because his parents forced him so bad that he couldn’t say no to them. He was sitting in the midst of celebrities and very rich people, he began to wonder why in the world these people need God.
The meeting began, the worship team were singing praises to God, followed the praises and worship was a word of God, the preacher began to speak about the love of God from John 3:16, as he gave his ears to the word, he felt embraced and loved by Jesus, for the first time in his life he felt accepted by God.
He gave his life to Jesus and invited Jesus to be His Lord and Saviour of his life! As soon as Jesus came into His heart, instantly Jesus set him free from all the addictions that had bound him for years. That very night he understood the call of God on His life to serve and be the witness of the love and power of Jesus to the world.
God gave him a burden to win the souls for the kingdom of God, and God also gave him a vision to make disciples of all nations and to plant churches.
In 2011, God brought Leena into his life, she is from a Hindu orthodox family born and brought up in Pune. Together they are serving God full time. Leena has been a great blessing to him in every way. By God’s grace they have conducted 10 batches of School of Disciples in different cities and pastored churches in Pune, Andhra Pradesh and now at present they are pastoring a church in Bangalore.
If you are in Bangalore, please take time to visit their church, or if you know anyone who is not committed to any church, you can direct them to “Eden Tabernacle” which is headed by Ps. Jeevan and Leena.
Please keep them in your prayers.
God Bless you.
