Dr. Mahesh Chavda grew up in Mombassa, Kenya, the son of a prominent Hindu teacher. At the tender age of 16 Mahesh had a dramatic encounter with Christ during which he was taken to heaven in a powerful dream. Following this encounter Mahesh committed his heart to the Savior. Since that time God has continued to use him in the power of the gospel and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Mahesh received his undergraduate degree from Wayland Baptist University, did graduate work at Texas Tech, and received his doctorate from Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College.
