About My Family

I was born and raised in a Hindu family. We were refugees from Bhutan living in a refugee camp in Nepal for 17 years. I heard the gospel of Christ inside the refugee camp in 2004. At that point I believed in Jesus and was baptized in the same year.

I got married in 2006 to Sarah Diyali. I then served as a youth pastor and associate pastor in the Nepali speaking community. I came to the U.S. in 2009, became a naturalized citizen in 2015 and am now planting a church as a lead pastor in the West Park area of Cleveland, Ohio.

My wife and I have two sons, Isaac and James.

About My Church Plant

Our church plant serves the Nepali speaking refugee population here in Cleveland.

Our church mission is: Restoring lives by connecting people to God. Our church vision is: One Church—Multi Cultures!

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


As a very new church, we are praying for provision of the following things: a sound system, a 12–15 passenger van, a podium, a projector and screen, and musical instruments, such as drums and a guitar.


You can build relationships with our team members and their families. Some examples of this are sending notes of encouragement and learning birthdays and anniversaries to send cards.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
