Jayan has been a part of Southside since 2006 when he and his wife, Prity, moved to Canberra to work in the Australian Public Service. Jayan and Prity have three young boys; Moses, Joseph, and Judah.
Jayan grew up in Chennai (India) in a Hindu family right next door to a temple. He describes that Jesus saves sinners of whom he was chief mischief maker and culprit. As a ‘problem’ teenager he stumbled upon Jesus while reading a New Testament and frankly is yet to find His Saviour boring!
After twelve years of working in the APS as an Engineer and manager, Jayan completed a Graduate Diploma of Divinity through Sydney Missionary and Bible College (SMBC) and joined the pastoral team at Southside in 2018.
Jayan’s role as the Community Pastor involves leading ministries that support the spiritual maturity of the growing church community, preaching the Word of God, and promoting the gospel at every opportunity.
Jayan is currently undertaking a Masters in Divinity through SMBC (part-time).
