Dr. KP Yohannan, author of No Longer a Slumdog, has been crisscrossing the globe for the past 40 years, challenging the body of Christ to discipleship. His all-out commitment to Jesus has left its impact on nearly every continent. To the Church caught up by the tidal waves of compromise and self-preservation, Yohannan’s life message is a fresh yet timeless word to this generation.
Yohannan is the founder and international director of GFA World and gives leadership to a growing Church movement in more than a dozen Asian nations.
Born in India, Yohannan, at the age of 16, responded to the Lord’s call to serve Him in North India. In 1974, he came to the United States, where he received his theological training and pastored a church for four years.
The Lord reminded Yohannan of the countless millions in Asia still waiting to learn of His love for them. In response, he resigned his pastorate, and he and his wife, Gisela, started what is known today as GFA World. Today, the ministry supports thousands of national workers and vibrant fellowships throughout Asia. Additionally, GFA World’s child sponsorship program cares for tens of thousands of children, helping them break out of the generational curses of poverty and hopelessness.
Dr. Yohannan is a prolific writer with more than 200 books published in Asia. No Longer a Slumdog is his ninth book published in the United States and it highlights his passion for children around the world. Yohannan’s landmark book, Revolution in World Missions, has literally changed the course of mission history in our generation with more than 3.9 million copies in print.
His Road to Reality radio program airs weekly on radio stations in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. His heart’s desire is to see a new generation catch sight of the Lord’s burden for the perishing and to give themselves, no-holds-barred, to His work.
