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.
