I was born as the third child to Pastor C M Mathew & Mrs Susamma Mathew, who have been faithfully pastoring churches in Kerala under the Sharon Fellowship.

After completing my Bachelors in Science (Chemistry) from Kerala in 1999, I pursued studies in Software Technology from Delhi. To pursue a career in IT, I enrolled for a Masters in Computer Applications course.

From 2002, along with my secular job, I was fully involved in youth ministries and had several opportunities to minister as an evangelist and teacher at various conventions. It was during this period in my life that the Lord impressed upon me the need to consecrate my life for His service.

In 2004, I joined South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies (SAIACS) Bangalore and obtained a Master of Arts (MA) in Theology. Having felt the need to further equip myself, in 2007, I completed Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) in Theology from the University of Mysore.

I am currently pursuing my Doctoral studies (D. Min) in Biblical Theology from Antioch School, Iowa, USA.
