Board of Advisors


Pastor Ravi Mohan Pahadiya, MBA

Founder, Children of Hope School

Pastor Ravi began his career as a sales executive for Reebok Corporation. Although he was very successful, he felt the calling of the Lord to evangelize. He left his business career and was blessed with a small church building where he grew a community of believers.

During the week the pastor went into the streets of Jaipur, India where he encountered the children who live in the slums. He began to teach them on the sidewalk about Jesus, and Children of Hope School was begun.

Supporting the COHS these past almost 5 years has been my great joy and also very rewarding.  I’ve witnessed with my own eyes the wonderful Kingdom work in progress daily at the Children of Hope School, bringing these children and their families much hope, a bright future and best of all, Eternal Life!   Surely it is more blessed to give than to receive! 

(Acts 20:35). But, in giving we do receive....Give and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. (Luke 6:38)

Praise the Lord!  God’s ways are Awesome!
