I was born in a small town called Bellampally, Adilabad district, Telangana state of India. At that time in that area the literacy rate was very low with a few Educational Institutions. And the medium of instruction was only in Telugu in the school where I studied in the year of 1965 the school name was Carmelites (CMC)Congregation a catholic Residential school. I finished my Higher education at Church of South India (CSI) Bellampally Town. My forefathers were from kolar Gold fields (KGF) Tamilnadu state. Now It is in Karnataka state after a few years they migrated to Singareni Coal mines of Bellampally Town. My mother Late Mrs. Rosemary Alece studied in Nagpur district Maharashtra State. At St Joseph’s High school medium was Hindi and my Father Late Mr. Raghavan Peter was a great freedom fighter of at the time of Razakars Invasions in Telangana State and having strong catholic orthodox background In our house I was brought up as Tamil speaking catholic Boy.
From our previous Four Generations we were all Catholics and As a family we were very fond of music and I used to lead a Choir in my catholic church and was actively involved in youth charismatic meetings and Vincent de Paul Social activities.
I was embedded with Leadership qualities at a very young age which attracted the Church Clergy team and made me “General Secretary” of the State Catholic’s Association and also promoted me as ‘The National Coordinator for All India Catholic Association.
I was married to a Catholic girl
Late Reddymasu.Nirmalamary, B.Sc. Nursing worked at Gandhi School of Nursing as a Tutor at Hyderabad, Telangana. I was blessed with a son in the year 1996 and we named him Sebastian. Abishai who has completed his Bachelor of Engineering in Automobiles from Hyderabad.
When I was in Catholic we had a custom of following the Lent season while I was following lent traditions and I was praying to God I heard clear voice from God I should get water Baptism. And I made an oath that If Lord give me an opportunity to take immerse water baptism in the river Jordan in Israel and by the grace of God in the year 1998 God fulfilled my desire of my Baptism .And I also made decision to do Lords ministry of proclaiming the Gospel on the same day of 25th May 1998 I was Infilled with Holy Spirit anointing
Calling & Purpose
The Holy Spirit spoke to me through the scriptural verse. 1 Corinthians 9:16-18 for though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! Dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse for if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a not my power in the gospel. Then I made a covenant with my Lord and the savior by Obeying to His call.
I started Lords work by spreading the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ for perishing souls.
In 2002 with clear Inspiration from the Lord I started a small Church congregation “Christ’s Fellowship (CF)” with five people and by the Grace of our Lord many new souls were added to our church.
Many Independent church pastors and preachers from other churches and denominations use to come to me for spiritual counseling and they use to share their persecution and grievances and their personal problems faced from other Non-Christian communities’ when I was praying about this and seeking Godly solution. Our Lord Jesus Christ inspired me to start a Christion Union called Aiic Union(All India Independent churches Union) in 2006.
To carry forward this vision I started arranging committees in each state and in each district of India and educating Independent pastors and evangelist about our fundamental Christian rights and minorities Laws.
Every month we used to conduct Aiic Union Prayer meetings to address the atrocities against pastors and leader Nationwide.By our constant prayers and meetings and by the God’s grace and pastors unity made us to solve these problems up to some extent.
By the Leading of the Holy Spirit, We established
A Diocese called ‘All India Independent churches Diocese’ in the year 2010(Aiic-Diocese) by taking assistance with the group of the Independent pastors and Bishops we brought all these Independent churches and pastors into a structural, Organized and recognized through the Aiic Diocese.
And to bring all this Aiic Diocese in the order of the Episcopal group, as it is in the status of mainline churches. With our diocese, we are giving training to the untrained by giving them proper theological Biblical values, Ordinations ,Christian Marriage solemnizing licenses , according to the Indian act 1872 and Dress codes. So that, they could have recognition and authority where ever they go in the ministry.
Aiic Diocese fulfills the financial needs of the poor pastors families who are persecuted pastors are attacked and Hospitalized. By the anti-Christian elements.
Although we are contributing helping we have not reached the desired results so far.
So our Humble request is that whoever visits our website kindly pray for our needs of the Aiic -Diocese and if God inspires your heart to help the ‘Aiic—Diocese’ and its activities. Please this opportunity to come forward with a kind heart to Support and contribute to our diocese so that God would pour out his Heavenly blessings upon you and your families abundantly.
