THE EARLY YEARS
Having struggled with failure and intense family pressure at a very young age, he had nothing to look forward to. The family faced constant challenges with two mentally challenged people within the family- his mother and his elder brother. They tried everything that promised healing to the two loved ones but their best efforts were in vain.
One day, a lady visited them with the gospel of Jesus Christ and urged them to give Jesus a chance to heal the sick members. She invited them to a prayer meeting to which they agreed to go. Their first visit to the church was life changing. They noticed marked changes in the mother and brother. They continued going for prayer and over time, they were completely healed! All glory to God! Vijay's father recognised that Jesus Christ is indeed the Risen Lord who had healed his wife and son and surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Slowly the rest of the family members invited Jesus into their lives with Vijay being the last one to receive The Lord. He surrendered to Jesus only after a powerful encounter he had with God at a prayer meeting.
Vijay's life started to change. He found help especially in his studies. His father had expected him to give up his studies but to his surprise Jesus helped Vijay to top his engineering college, with 87%!! Only Jesus can turn a failure into success.
CALL TO MINISTRY
In 1997, even as Vijay was working as an aircraft engineer, in Mumbai, he felt a call to serve Jesus in full time ministry. Vijay decided to obey The Lord, and follow this call into full time ministry.
In a few months, God opened doors for him to go to City Harvest Church School of Theology, Singapore for biblical studies. That is where God first planted a vision in him, to build strong local churches.
Ever since he has been serving God faithfully building strong local churches in Mumbai and outside Mumbai for the glory of God. He is the founder and Senior Pastor of New Life Fellowship, Lokhandwala. He is also an Executive member of the Board of Trustees of New Life Fellowship and New Life Medical and Educational Trust.
He and his wife, Tejal with their son, Yohann are serving God in Mumbai city for almost 15 years.
- Pastor Tejal Nadar Pastor Tejal Nadar, is co founder and Senior Pastor of New Life Fellowship, Lokhandwala.
While in college, she experienced the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. She unconditionally surrendered her life to Jesus and prayed that he would make her life count.
When she married Pastor Vijay in 1999, she thought she would live a quiet life, behind the scenes, serving people as best as she could. Little did she know what God had in store for her.
Ps Vijay saw and encouraged the gifts God had placed in her and she yielded. The result was unbelievable! God started using her mightily in preaching and teaching the Word of God. He gave her a passion to win souls and to see them discipled. She regularly travels across India, building and equipping the various churches they oversee. Her desire is to see people enjoy a close walk with our loving Savior Jesus Christ and she counsels them to that effect. She is involved in administration and active leadership development.
Pastor Tejal is also an anointed worship leader, songwriter, composer and singer. In 2013, she released her first album, Ucchaiyon Par.
