Karikot Oommen Cherian was born and raised in South India. His father passed away when he was still a young child at the age of three. And so his mother was left to raise him along with his 12 siblings on her own. As an adolescent he received Christ as his personal Savior at age fourteen and dedicated his life for the ministry when he was seventeen.
He has traveled and preached in countries all over the world including the USA, India, China, Russia, Finland, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Israel, Norway, Trinidad, Bahamas, and the Andaman Islands. More recently, his travels have focused on the areas of northern India, specifically Gujurat, Utter Pradesh, and Delhi. On his last mission trip, he spent time reaching the people of Nepal. Other areas of service include facilitating the planting of new churches as well as teaching seminars in various places in the past 57 years.
He holds a Doctorate degree in Divinity and a Master’s degree in Theology from the International Seminary in Orlando, Florida. Rev. Cherian is a member of Full Gospel Fellowship of Churches International, the American Association of Family Counselors and American Assocation of Christian Counselors.
Rev. Cherian and his wife Achamma reside in Pembroke Pines, Florida. They have two daughters who are married and have four grandchildren. Mark & Shine Joseph live in Atlanta, Georgia and have two children, Aniysa and Aaron. Saneel and Sonia Amin live in Debary, Florida with their sons, Asaiah and Malachi.
