Deepak Kumar Bardewa was born in Nepal into a conservative Hindu family. Since childhood, he had a number of spiritual quests which were not satisfied by the answer he was provided. In order to earn salvation, he was taught to do good works which he did gladly. However, his quest remained unanswered. One day on his way to school, he found a gospel tract that clearly explained who God is and why he sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to this world. His spirit was enlightened, and he accepted Jesus as his personal savior. His new found faith was not welcomed in the family, and he was disowned. He was fifteen at that time, and in spite of being forbidden, he received believers’ baptism in 1982.
He survived somehow by God’s grace, and since his conversion, he has had a burden for his family regarding their salvation. In 1990, he decided not to take a high-paying government job, but instead dedicated his life to serve God. He was ordained for full- time ministry in February, 2006, after completing his theological education from Biola University.
After his return to India, he established a theology education center for the Nepali people which has trained more than fifty pastors and missionaries. More than twenty house churches have also been started. He is currently compiling a number of Bible study materials in the Nepali language which are helpful tools for ministry workers. Besides biblical training, he also organizes seminars, health camps, and conducts various other programs in order to enhance the spiritual life of believers.
