About the Founder

Pastor. Kaivalyam David was born as the last son in a family of 8 children. His father was an Atheist and mother was a secret protestant Christian. At the age of 13, his mother passed away and shortly after 2 years he lost his father too. One day when he was fast asleep he suddenly heard his brothers discussing who would take care of him, his studies and other necessities. The sad plight was none of his brothers were willing to take care of him.

It was a very pathetic situation, he felt that he was almost an orphan. The pain was too heavy to bear, the loss of his parents and the state of being an orphan made him leave home without anybody’s knowledge of Chennai city. He roamed in the streets with hunger and tears rolling down his cheeks wandering like a lost sheep, homeless and none to care.


Sometime later he found a job to support himself but it was a place of sin to work, soon he quit the job and was employed in a Christian shop. The shopkeeper took him to a church, this was the very first time in his life to step into a  Pentecostal church. The message given at the church touched his heart and kindled a hope within to live because there is a living God. Therefore he held on to this faith that he believed which made him accept Christ as his personal savior, committed to obey to the waters of baptism.

When he heard the truth of Holy Spirit he says ‘I was neither able to believe nor deny the power of God, so I prayed in few words that if I could experience the touch of the HOLY SPIRIT I would accept JESUS CHRIST as my Lord and dedicate my life to serve GOD’.


The loving Lord heard his prayer and filled him abundantly with his power. He was unable to control the power of God and was filled totally.


When he received the power of the Holy Spirit, he immediately felt amazingly happy. It wiped away all his tears, the long pain, loneliness, and agony, which had a stronghold since the demise of his parents – were now totally healed. The founder joyfully says that “By the immense grace, mercy, and love of God I received the special anointing of the gifts of Holy Spirit and received the calling of an apostle, therefore, I dedicated to bear the sufferings of Christ in the field of ministry”. Right from the age of 17 to this day the Lord has blessed this ministry abundantly by winning 1000 souls for Christ and planting new churches in areas where the gospel was not sown. The Lord has blessed me with a beautiful gift, my wife Priya who stands as great support for me in the field of Family and Ministry. the Lord has blessed us with 2 sons Jude and Jonathan. Together as Family, we are serving the Lord .I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth”.Psa 34:1.

About the Vision | mission

AJC Ministries has a great passion for the lost and the unreached. We believe that it’s a God-ordained mandate to impact the world. We are called to preach the Gospel to the lost, discipline the nations, and plant churches in areas where there is no church. God has called us to educate his loved ones about how to apply biblical truth in every facet of their living and encourage his chosen to bring hope and strength to all those around them through reflections on their Christian life. Matthew 28:18-20; Isaiah 1:17


With the Strong Prayer support and Sacrificial offerings from our believers and friends of our ministry, the Lord has enabled us to reach the interior villages through, tract distribution, Personal Evangelism and Gospel meetings which have paved the way to start small village churches. Some of them are growing to have branches too. Few churches are constructed.

Early Church History

This ministry was started in the year 1989.  It is always remarkable to be nostalgic about the past and the foundation of the early church. I lived in Trichy in 1988 and was helping Bro. Nellai Kumar in ministry. It was then I came to know about the Pudukkottai district and its surrounding villages.  The gospel team with whom I was working at that time selected some of the villages and asked us to do ministry there.

Four brothers including myself started to a village called Gandarvakottai by bi-cycle and traveled about 64 km from Trichy.  After ministering for a few days the brothers with me left the place due to some reason.  But the Lord insisted me to stay back, so I did not go with them. As I was a young boy nobody came forward to lend me a room to stay and therefore my life went on traveling on the bicycle for 6 months.  In the morning before the school starts, I used to gather small children under a tree and teach them songs, bible stories, and memory verses.  In the afternoon I used to eat the mid-day meal provided by the Government in the school.

A fisherman offered me his cycle by which he would sell his fishes, which had a big carrier. I took it from him and tied a carton box to it.  All I owned was a sack, a Bible and some gospel tracts.  This was my only property.  After I finish the children’s ministry I used to rest in the widespread Cashew forest and at night used to sleep in the veranda of the old CSI church.  The caretaker of that church always used to share many things with me.  One day he told me about Swedish and German Missionaries and their ministries in those areas.  Some of his testimonies created a great Zeal within me and when I heard about Rev.Paul Sandegren and his ministry work, it made me understand how important it is for me to serve the Lord in this village. However, big can I achieve being a young boy? Shivering in the cold and sometimes coughing during dry winds, I spent many nights, about 6 months in front of the old Church veranda.

I went in search of rooms with some boys. We found a retired old man from the Railways, who had lost for his wife and was living alone.  His children lived elsewhere and it was an advantage for us to approach him.  At last, the old grandfather agreed to spare me a room.  It was a small house, in it he proposed to divide his hall and shared a portion with me on a condition to pay a rent of Rupees one hundred (100/-) on the 5th of every month.  If not paid on 5th then must vacate the room immediately.  I accepted all his conditions and stayed in that house.  Every day the old man used to get up at 5’O clock and recite all the Hindu slogans.  I thought, for a lifeless god if this man seems to be so pious then how much more should I be to worship the creator and living God.  The zeal within me woke me by 4 O’clock every morning .and sing praises to our Living God.

On one side the old man used to shout his slogans on the other side I would raise my voice and sing and this will continue from 4 – 6 a.m. every day. When I come out of the house, the neighbors would say “Either you change yourself to his religion or convert him to your religion. Why do you kill us every morning”?  But the old man loved me and he used to teach me how to cook and we ate together.  This was how I started to spend my youth full days with a great deal of passion for God.

It was an evening and we both sat outside and were having a chat. While the old man said, Jesus is just a man and he is not a God to worship.  Immediately I arose with anger because this man has simply judged our living God and not knowing His power he has spoken.  With much anger in my mind and spirit, I left to lose my words which gave room to raise a storm in my life.

I answered; let it be to your understanding that whom I worship is a man and not god.  But all you worship are devils and none of them are God.  Immediately after I told this the old man and started to fume in anger and he rose up and said that he will give me 15 days’ time by then I must vacate this house.  He went inside his house and I was totally upset. I went into my room and cried all night to God with a burden and sought his guidance and the Lord comforted me.  The next day a brother came in search of me.  Those days, I used to drive demon spirits from people in the villages.  Many used to come to me for such deliverance’s and this old man used to enjoy watching the way the spirits manifest and get deliverance in the name of Jesus.

This brother was a young boy; I asked him to come inside and prayed for him.  As I kept my hands on him I found that he was possessed with a spirit as I kept praying the spirit started to manifest like a snake with a loud show.  As I commanded the spirits in the name of Jesus it started to tell its names and they were names of the Hindu Gods. It was a great astonishment to me; the gods whom the old man argued the previous day as his gods were manifested as devils from the young boy.

That night there happened a change in the heart of the old man. The next day he called me into his room.    When I went, there was a great surprise waiting for me.  All the idol photos were removed from the wall and were tied together.   He said,” I accept that Jesus is the only true God.  You buy a bible and songbook for me.”  From that day, he started to hold Jesus and accepted Him as his personal savior.  He owned 67 cents of land in that area and he took me in that place one day.   He told me you can take any 2 grounds which you like and said I am giving you my land to build a church.  It was the first property for the church and the first church of our mission.

Our beliefs

The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and contains every answer to man’s problems. 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20,21

There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. John 10:30; John 14:26; Philippians 2:5-7

God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted. Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16

Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God. Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5

We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned favor. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God. Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24

We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. He helps empower the believer to develop the character of Christ and live every day in God’s will. Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4

God gives all believers spiritual gifts. They are for the strengthening of God’s people (the Church) and proof of God’s existence and power to unbelievers. The gifts of the Spirit are active and relevant today. 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Peter 4:10

Divine healing is active in the lives of people today through Jesus, who is the Healer. Healing includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual restoration. Luke 9:11; Matthew 9:35; Acts 10:38; Matthew 10:1

The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18

Jesus will return and take all those who have accepted Him as Savior to heaven for eternity. Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 9:28
