Standing in front of half a million people on a
rainy evening, with a divine burden to bring blessings to the
brokenhearted, ready to preach the good news with power and authority,
and pleading with the Lord to stop the lashing rains and very soon to
the amazement of everyone gathered there, the heavy downpour comes to a
standstill, people fold their umbrellas and begin to listen to the Word
of God delivered through him with rapturous attention and a renewed
hope – an apt description of Dr. PAUL DHINAKARAN, a mighty apostle of
God from the land of India. This is only a small miracle in the global
ministry of Dr. Paul Dhinakaran that is filled with numerous signs and
wonders and the abounding grace of God, attended by even 300,000 people
in an evening meeting addressed by him. He is endowed by God with the
gifts of prophecy, Word of knowledge, healings and faith as he brings
God’s word prophetically to people, the nations and churches and the
Lord does miracles when he prays for people and nations.
Born on 4th September 1962, he entered his youthhood away from God,
deeply depressed and fully gripped with a fear regarding his future.
But the Lord spoke to him through his father Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran, a
Prophet that touched his life deeply. His life never remained the same
again. He began to prosper in wisdom and knowledge. After completing
his MBA, he was the first student in the University of Madras to earn a
PhD in management science at the young age of 27.
Runs a University:
Today, he spearheads the Karunya University that
was founded in 1986 with a divine vision to “raise leaders in
technology with high spiritual values and commitment to society”.
Accredited with “A” grade in the country, this University is located in
Coimbatore in a sprawling area of 600 acre lush green campus. Under his
able leadership as Founder and Chancellor, Karunya University has
carved a niche for itself in the field of higher education today. At
present, 5400 students from all parts of India and abroad pursue their
higher education from their undergraduate to doctoral levels in the
fields of engineering, technology and management.
Member in Govt. of India Committees
A man who frequently rubs shoulders with eminent leaders of the nation,
Dr. Paul was appointed by the present Prime Minister of India as a
Member of the National Monitoring Committee for Minority Education and
as a Member of the Governing Council of “Education for all” Committee,
both in the Education department of the Government of India. He had
also served as a Syndicate Member of the Bharathiar University for two
consecutive terms appointed by the Governor of the State of Tamilnadu.
Dr. Paul Dhinakaran dedicated his entire life for the ministry of God.
As a visionary, he revolutionized the “Jesus Calls” ministry in several
ways. He was instrumental in establishing Jesus Calls “Prayer Towers”
throughout the globe in 7 countries and all over India where Prayer
Intercessors offer dedicated prayers all the 24 hours for thousands of
Television Ministry worldwide
He is also the chief architect of the worldwide television ministry of
Jesus Calls that produces nearly 135 TV programmes per week, carrying
Christ’s love and compassion in a world-class manner to nearly
two-thirds of the globe in many regional and national languages.
Recently, he launched the “Rainbow TV”, a 24 hours TV channel as per
the leading of the Lord to bring the healing touch of God to millions
of homes across European nations and abroad.
The Lord gave a special vision to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran to connect every
pin code (zip code) of India through a network of dedicated, spirit
filled volunteers of God through the Ambassador Network. These
Ambassadors go around and pray for the people with the love and
compassion of God. Similarly, the Jesus Calls “Family Blessing Plan”
given by the Lord to Dr. Paul proves to be an enormous blessing to
several thousands of families who have began to experience the
blessings of love, peace and prosperity in their homes.
Care for the poor and needy
Moved by the Love of God for the poor, Dr. Paul
Dhinakaran started “Seesha”, the social arm of Jesus Calls Ministry
which feeds and helps thousands of poor and downtrodden from the
impoverished sections of the society. Several hundreds of rurally
backward children receive free tutorial education and free medical
camps and environmental awareness campaigns are also regularly
conducted by Seesha for the benefit of these people.
Traveling far and wide carrying the love and compassion of God, Dr.
Paul has also authored many best selling books that have captured the
heart of the youth. His songs through audio and video albums permeate
the divine peace of God. The Canada Christian College in Toronto has
conferred him an honorary doctorate in divinity.
Dr. Paul Dhinakaran is married to Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran who
stands as a tremendous support in his untiring ministry to the
brokenhearted. They have three sweet children, who have already begun
to serve the Lord besides their studies, son Samuel and daughters
Sharon and Stella Ramola.
