Dr. N. JayaPaul (Naralasetty JayaPaul) was called and Anointed by the Lord Jesus Christ to build the Kingdom of God. It pleased the Lord to use him as an evangelist, missionary, pastor, radio and television preacher.
He was born on February 29, 1952 in St. Mary’s Hospital in Bellary, Karnataka, India. He is the elder son of Chilakamma (mother) and Surya Prakash Rao (father). He has three brothers and four sisters.
In his teenage, when he was 18 years old, on February 15, 1971, the Lord touched him by the vision of the cross. He repented for his sins and gave his heart to the Lord, then sought the will of God for his life.
The Lord spoke to him, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5. He trusted and obeyed the God’s call, and Dr. JayaPaul left everything and went to the bible college in Chennai on July 15, 1971. During the 10 years of his theological training, he had done ministry in the slums, parks, jails, and hospitals as well. He pleased the Lord to use him as a soul winner. By the word he preached and the prayers he did, the Lord began to demonstrate his power. Drunkards were changed, demon possessed people were released and many broken families were united. Young people gave their life to the Lord and there was a great revival.
Then the Lord leads him to the tribal people in the foothills of Nilgiris. He started climbing the hills to reach the tribes who were settled in hamlets in the forest and preached gospel.
By then he was 30 years old and according to the will of God he was united with the believer, Sulochana, on December 28, 1982.
After the marriage, the Lord guided him to start an independent ministry by giving him a promise “See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know and people’s unknown to you will come running to obey because I, the Lord your God, the holy one of Israel have made you glorious” Isaiah 55:4-5. Believing the promise, Calvary Evangelical Fellowship was launched in a small village called Kapavaram in Andhra Pradesh, India. The way the Lord guided him was beyond the imagination. He was able to preach numerous villages with the gospel. The Lord has used him as a revival preacher and conventional speaker. Many youth retreats and conferences were conducted. Wherever he went there was revival because the hand of the Lord had been with him and he was able to win hundreds of souls and he became a role model for many youngsters, many of them are doing wonderful ministry today.
After five years in Andhra Pradesh, the Lord let him go to Chennai again where the Lord gave the radio ministry, which continued for about 20 years and many unreached people were reached with the radio messages. To strengthen the believers, Calvary Premadhara, magazine was published in 1985 and till today it reaches thousands of families. Also out of his bible knowledge and experience he was able to write about 50 spiritual books, which were great blessing to the thousands of readers and were enlightened by the word of God.
In 1995, the Lord gave a small place in Chennai to construct the church as a base of this ministry. Though it is a small place, the power of prayer goes from this place to reach the universe.
The Lord opened the doors for television ministry in 2003, Calvary Dharshanam. It was started with one program per week and today the word of God is delivered in seven different languages through several television networks. Television ministry has a great impact and millions of people are blessed with word of God.
In 2009, Lord guided him to hold the revival meeting and about 100 revival meetings were held in different parts of India so far and 30 to 70 thousand people used to gather to learn the word of God at each meeting and there was a great harvest of souls. All his three sons with their families are also a part of ministry using different talents.
The Lord guided to start JayaPaul Foundation Trust in the year 2009. Today, the ministry is blessed by the Lord and millions are reached. It pleased the Lord to use Dr. Jayapaul in different parts of India and also abroad and today because of social media, he reached the entire universe with the gospel.
The vision is to make “Everyone to be Like Christ” and the aim is to “Reach the Unreached”.
