Vision for the Nations: Dr. Paul Dhinakaran
Standing in front of a half million people on a rainy evening, holding a divine burden to bring blessings to the brokenhearted and ready to preach the good news with power and authority, Dr. Dhinakaran pleaded with the Lord to stop the rain. To the amazement of everyone gathered there, the heavy downpour stopped. People took down their umbrellas and began to listen to the Word of God delivered by Dr. Dhinakaran.
This is only a small miracle in the global ministry of Dr. Dhinakaran. Dr. Dhinakaran is endowed by God with the gifts of prophecy, Word of Knowledge, healings and faith as he brings God's word prophetically to people, the nations and churches. The Lord does miracles when he prays for people and nations.
It has not been an easy road to ministry for Dr. Dhinakaran. As a child he dealt with depression and was fully gripped with a fear regarding his future. Through his father, the late Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran, the Lord spoke to Paul in a way that touched his life deeply. Paul began to prosper in wisdom and knowledge, and has never remained the same. After Paul completed his MBA, he was the first student in the University of Madras to earn a PhD in management science at the age of 27.
Dr. Dhinakaran has dedicated his entire life to the ministry of God. As a visionary, he revolutionized the "Jesus Calls" ministry in several ways. He was instrumental in establishing Jesus Calls "Prayer Towers" that are now throughout the globe - in seven countries and all over India. They are places where Prayer Intercessors offer dedicated prayers 24-hrs a day for thousands of people around the world. The National Prayer Tower in Delhi is located across from the Indian Parliament.
THE AMBASSADOR NETWORK
The Lord gave a special vision to Dr. Dhinakaran, to connect every zip code of India through a network of dedicated, spirit filled volunteers of God, The Ambassador Network. The Ambassadors go and pray for people with the Love and Compassion of God. Similarly, the Jesus Calls "Family Blessing Plan" given by the Lord to Dr. Paul proves to be an enormous blessing to several thousands of families who have begun to experience the blessings of Love, Peace and Prosperity in their homes.
Moved by the Love of God for the poor, Dr. Dhinakaran started "Seesha", the social arm of Jesus Calls Ministries which feeds and helps thousands of the poor and downtrodden from the impoverished sections of the society. Several hundreds of rural, poor children receive free tutorial education and free medical camps. Environmental awareness campaigns are also regularly conducted by Seesha for their benefit.
These are just a few ways Dr. Dhinakaran and Jesus Calls Ministries are impacting the world until the Lord returns. Dr. Paul is also the chief architect of the worldwide television ministry of Jesus Calls that produces nearly 1800 TV programs per month, carrying Christ's love and compassion in a world-class manner to nearly two-thirds of the globe in many languages. Recently they launched "Rainbow TV", a 24-hr TV channel. As per the leading of the Lord to bring the healing touch of God to millions of homes across European nations and abroad.
Today Dr. Dhinakaran runs the Karunya University that was founded in 1986 with a divine vision to "raise leaders in technology with high spiritual values and commitment to society." Through his leadership as Founder and Chancellor, Karunya University has carved a place for itself in the field of higher education. It currently has 5,400 students from all aparts of India and abroad who are pursuing a higher education from undergraduate to doctoral levels in fields of engineering, technology and management.
