Santosh grew up as the son of a Christian couple who felt called to a region far from their birthplace. While he drifted away from God during his teen years, God got ahold of him in a special way in 1980. He began work as a pastor, and after marrying in 1989, he and his wife have steadily increased in ministry and are mentors to many Christian workers across several states and in two other countries. His father’s ministries are now included under that umbrella since Santosh’s father resigned at the age of 90! They oversee 475 missionaries working in 350 churches. Their adult children are both heavily involved in the ministry as well.
