Daryl Joshua

Daryl Abilash Joshua was born in Bangalore to Pr. and Mrs. Calvin Joshua. As a baby, he and his twin brother were dedicated to God’s service at the Central English Church, Cunningham Road. Daryl had his early education at Spencer Elementary School, after which the family moved to Shillong in North East India where they served as missionaries for ten years.

Having studied in our boarding schools like James Memorial, ED. Thomas, and Lowry, he was blessed with an Adventist education throughout his childhood. After completing his Bachelor of Science Degree at Spicer Memorial College, Daryl gave his life to Jesus and decided to study for Ministry. He went on to get his Masters of Religion Program from Andrews University before getting involved with ministry work in 2003. He also has an additional masters degree in Social Science.

Daryl saw God’s work come to life early on. He began his pastoral career as a Pastor/ Evangelist in Orissa for three years. He then was called to work with young people at Roorkee Adventist College as the Pastor/ Teacher and the Dean of the College. He later moved to the Salisbury Memorial Park Church and then back to India in the Katraj Adventist Church, Pune where he served as the Pastor.

In 2012, he was called to be the Pastor of the Central Church at Hyderabad. While serving there, he was invited by the General Conference to be trained to be part of a unique initiative called One Year In Mission to help and assist the New York 13 Mission to Cities Project. Over the next three and a half years, he led as a coordinator for the project at the Southern Asia Division. Two years ago, he came a full circle when he was called to serve as pastor in the church his parents were married in, and he was dedicated – the Seventh-day Adventist Central English Church, Bangalore.

Pastor Daryl has always had a particular passion for working with young people and has drawn many young people towards accepting Jesus as their savior over the past fifteen years.
