Jutike & Esther Rao



Pastor Prabhakar Rao Jutike and wife, Esther, have been with IGM since 2007. He was born in a small remote village in South India. He accepted the Christ as his personal Saviour when he was 14 years old, While continuing to live for the Lord he has seen many people worshiping idols and dying without Christ. The Lord has given him a passion for perishing souls and to witness for his Saviour. At the age 16, the Lord called him to full-time ministry according to Jeremiah 1:4,5. In obedience to His call, he went to Bible College in August 1975 in order to equip himself for the Lord’s work. In the year 1984, he got married to a young woman who had the same burden for the Lord. The Lord has blessed them with three daughters.

Without any source or help from anyone, just trusting the Lord, he started the Bethel Bible Baptist Church and Ministries, in a small room with two people. The Lord has blessed the ministry abundantly. In the span of five years more than 600 people were added to the church. He has started seven more branches, Bible classes, children’s ministries, medical camps to help the poor and needy, and distributes clothes to the widows.

The ministry has continued for more than 25 years, without any permanent place to worship. He moved his worship services 30 times to different places. Due to that, he lost several families. After praying much, the Lord has provided a piece of land, about 200 square yards, for the church. Now he is looking toward constructing a building. Please uphold him your prayers.
