Dr. Thomas M.J was born to missionary parents in Kerala and bought up in both South and North India. From childhood, parents invested their faith in him and later it was nurtured and built up by several people from diverse life experiences. Along with his education, he spent twenty-one years in the mission field in North India, where his faith is shaped by the contours of constant interaction with youths of different Christian denominations, university students, missionaries, believers in North Indian village churches, academicians of different religions and perspectives, and pastors.

He believes and depends on the transforming power of God’s word and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. His main vision is to nurture missionaries and to build a network between the visionaries to share God-invested resources.

He is married to Gifty Joseph, Mental Health Counselor and lives at Richmond, VA.
