A humble and yielded vessel of the Lord, Pastor Zachariah John better known as Pastor Zac John, was born on October  20, 1956,  to Mr. Chacko & Mrs. Mariamma John in Kerala, South India. The Lord met and saved Pastor Zac at a house prayer meeting at 17 yrs. old. The Lord called him into the ministry since the young age of 19. At that time, he left job opportunities in civil engineering, and responded to the cry of the mission field. He went on to study at New Life Bible College in Utterpradesh, North India and other Biblical, Missions, and Leadership trainings in India and abroad. God used him to train youths for missions, lead evangelistic teams, and hold open air meetings preaching and teaching the gospel among Hindus and Muslims in 15 states in North India. Today, after much training, proving, and service to the Lord he oversees Global Gospel Ministries & Churches in India, and trains and releases young leaders into the mission field. He is a church planter.

He is also the coordinator and liaison for the Christian community in South India fostering relations between 7,000 churches. As a liaison he works with the Indian government in developing programs and methods to prevent persecution, ensure religious freedom for Christians, and provide legal advice to those involved. His works bridge the gap between the Christian community and the government while interlocking and unifying the various denominations of Christian leaders especially and believers. Through this position, he has become an instrumental leader in assuring that those in this community are fairly treated, and although India is the chief operating base, he carries out these operations  across several countries.

Additionally, he remains faithful to the orphanage he started in 2006. Due to regulation changes they are limited to only serving these under privileged children on privately owned properties and buildings. Our prayers are to seize buildings and land to adequately accommodate this service to the children.
