    Greetings from India,

    Just a small note introducing myself.

    I'm Christopher (26) and I currently serve on staff at Bangalore Presbyterian Church as an intern. Our church belongs to a small denomination called Presbyterian Church in India - Reformed (PCI-R) which is the equivalent of the PCA in the USA. I'm currently a candidate.
    I completed my M.Div. at Presbyterian Theological Seminary, India. I love presuppositional apologetics and reading old Puritan classics. Thomas Watson and Stephen Charnock are perhaps my favourite Puritans.

    I look forward to joining this merry band.

    SDG.

    Christopher, welcome to the PB. There's a bunch of excellent and smart people here. I'm sure you will find a home away from home.

    I see you're a candidate for the ministry. We had a recent thread, a very short one, on Spurgeon's, Lectures to my Students. It's a book every candidate and minister should read. Here's the link to the thread. And again, I say welcome.

    That is awesome. My country is what it is today, because of the Christian influence of numerous missionaries. So I am grateful for his service. :)

    Yes, I am. Covenant BP Church is in Bangalore and Rev. George Skariah who pastors the congregation is a good friend of mine.

    Thank you for the welcome.

    I read numerous parts of Lectures to My Students while in Seminary. Maybe I should pick it up again and read the whole book this time.

    Welcome, Christopher! I'm excited to have someone from India join us. I maintain a Confessional Reformed & Calvinistic Baptist Churches map. Will you please send me a list of Confessional Reformed churches (denominations/websites) which might be safe to add to the map? Any which are not Confessional, please note for me. It would be especially helpful to know which languages are preached. Thanks so much!
