Our Pastors

Anand Gantela

Anand Gantela

Lead Pastor of Hope UC Hyderabad

This repository of knowledge and facts is renowned for delivering riveting sermons from the Old Testament. His sincere veneration for the Word has deservedly earned him his spot as Teacher/Preacher/Expositor at Church and at weekly communal gatherings. Pastor Anand has made himself increasingly invaluable by being intentionally available. He has never been too busy for a Coffee, a game of Table-Tennis, a theological discussion or to hear the heartbeat of a layman. He is also a skilled Artisan; a sharp pencil, a blank sheet and a bucket-load of creativity figure on his list of inestimable possessions.
