Pastor Tej was born and raised an orthodox Hindu in the shadow of Mount Everest. He accepted Christ in 1988 while living at an orphanage after the death of his mother. His calling is to plant churches and train others to do the same. Presently, he is the Senior Pastor of a Church in Kathmandu, oversees many churches, a Ministry Training Center, and SARA Children’s Homes. The Training Center has trained and graduated Church leaders and sent out more than 85 Church planters and ministers in the last seven years, including 15 this year.

A number of the graduates from remote areas have gone back to their villages and families to plant Churches. This is a work completely underwritten by GTCOTR. In recent months, Pastor Tej has distributed 50 solar powered Audio Bibles to those who cannot read or write, rescued two young girls and placed them in school, and received eight new children into one of their three orphanages – bringing the total number of orphans they are responsible for to 36.
