    Shekhar Kallianpur
    • SHEKHAR Kallianpur was born into a staunch Hindu Saraswat Brahmin household as the son of a Hindu priest and astrologer and grandson of a numerologist. As a young boy, he was expected to follow the family tradition of meticulous Hindu rites, rituals and astrological predictions. But what Shekhar’s family couldn’t predict despite their expertise in astrology was that God had a very different plan for him. Jesus Christ had chosen Shekhar to be a man of God. While he was still a teenager, he accepted Jesus as his personal savior. The 50-year-old Shekhar Kallianpur now leads the New Life Fellowship Church of Juhu in Mumbai as its pastor. He has brought a change in several lives in India by proclaiming the love of Jesus to them.
    • Later did any of your family members or relatives accept Christ as their savior?


      Both my brothers have accepted Jesus as their personal savior. One of my brothers is a pastor in Dallas in the United States.
