I was born and raised in a Christian home in Pakistan. My parents were a significant influence in my life and encouraged me to follow Christ and be a pastor. I would see my parents praying and reading their Bible every morning. When I was 13, I started to follow my parent’s pattern of spending time with God and would read my Bible, but I did not give my heart to Christ. However, at the age of 17 I surrendered my life to Christ and got baptized.
In 2007 I was selected for a Fulbright Scholarship and went to Seattle to study where I completed my Hotel and Hospitality Management Certificate. I then moved to Canada in 2008 and worked in the hotel and hospitality industry. I lived in Coquitlam for a few years until I met my wife in 2011. We got married in 2012 and I moved to Abbotsford. We expanded our family through adoption in 2017. In 2012, the Lord called me to a pastoral ministry and since then I have been growing in God and growing God in others.
My Hope for King Road Church
My hope for King Road Church is to know, love, and follow God. I also hope for the church to reach out to their neighbors and reflect and represent Christ.
