PRADEEPAN & AMREITHA JEEVA
Born of Sri Lankan Hindu refugees, Pastor Pradeepan became a follower of Jesus as a sophomore in high school in desperate need of hope. Making a decision to live for Jesus eventually lead him to Oral Roberts University where he graduated with a Bachelor's in Pastoral Christian Ministry and later with a Master's in Educational Leadership. Pastor Pradeepan has been a youth and young adult pastor for over 8 years, leading hundreds of young people into a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. Having lived in Minnesota, Colorado, Michigan, Oklahoma and even South Korea, he has pastored individuals from different backgrounds, ages and cultures. Church Planting has been in his heart since his senior year of college and has now become a reality. Pastor Amreitha joins Pradeepan in a passion for the local church in addition to a call to care for the orphan and poor. Growing up in Kansas after being adopted from India, Amreitha gave her heart to Jesus as a little girl. She graduated with a Bachelor's in Child and Family Studies and serves on the executive leadership team of a non-profit organization caring for orphans and poor communities in Southeast Asia. Amreitha Co-Founded a job creation company empowering impoverished women in Cambodia with dignified work and education--distancing them from the dangers of sex trafficking and affording them an opportunity to receive holistic care for sustainable futures. Together, Pastors Pradeepan and Amreitha (and baby boy Obadiah & future baby Jeeva) have a vision to see the beauty of Jesus made known in the Seattle area and beyond.
