Our Pastor


Pastor Thomas Yohannan is the senior pastor of Calvary Pentecostal Church, Richardson TX as of Nov
2020. He is an anointed preacher with a zeal for evangelization.

Pastor Yohannan’s family came to the faith from an Orthodox Christian background, but he had the
privilege early on to know and worship God in spirit and truth. He was taking courses to prepare for his
professional career but God had a different plan for him and called him into the ministry.

He completed his theological education in India from New Theological College in Dehradun, and United
Theological College in Bangalore, where he obtained his Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Divinity
degrees respectively.

He and his wife did a pioneer ministry work among the North Indians in the state of Bihar. There, he gave
formal music lessons to children, which allowed them to have access to many homes, which would
otherwise never let a Christian minister in.

In Kerala and Karnataka, God also opened doors for Pastor Yohannan to serve in various existing churches
of the Assemblies of God there. He was also able to gain a strong hands-on experience in ministering to
people from different walks of Indian society, which included street vendors, slum dwellers, AIDS/HIV
victims, and people from interior villages of India.

God enabled Pastor to have the opportunity to do further graduate study at the University of Geneva,
Switzerland, and to minister at the Church for the Nations. This allowed him to meet even more people
of different backgrounds, as well as have opportunities to travel to different countries in Europe.

Pastor Yohannan and family moved to USA on 2012 as the Senior pastor of International Assembly of God
Church in Warren, Michigan. He served there till 2017 and took the charge of True Light Christian Assembly
Church in Houston TX as senior pastor from 2017 to 2020.

Pastor Thomas Yohannan is fluent in English, Malayalam, and Hindi. He is married to Sybil who was
working as a Hospital Chaplain and has two boys Noel and Kevin.
