"These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so." - Acts 17:11

12 years ago, Asish met similar Berean Christians in Bangalore, India who taught him to study and search the Bible to find out whether these things were so. Since then he has an intense desire to study and correctly interpret scripture to bring glory to God. He upholds 2 Timothy 3:16 and finds the entire Bible as divinely inspired and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

In 2010, he moved to the Pacific Northwest and has been working for Microsoft as a Software Engineer ever since. Besides computers, he enjoys going on long rides on his bicycle and enjoys taking photographs of the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

He and his wife (Niru) are blessed with two young children. He along with his family fellowship with the saints at Northgate Gospel Chapel, Seattle where he teaches the Bible periodically, co-leads the Men's meeting and the outreach ministry.
