Pastor Jacob Muthalali was born in the state of Kerala, India. He was born to parents who had not accepted Jesus as their Savior, but valued Christian principles. At the age of 30, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was led by the Spirit to take water baptism. Later, he received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. He continued his education and went for higher studies in Accounting and became an associate member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India in 1985. In 1986 he was married to his wife Mercy and they were blessed with their son Joshua. After Joshua was born, Pastor Jacob Muthalali continued with his accounting career which took his family to Dubai and there he continued his work. As Mr. and Mrs. Muthalali and their son Joshua were residing in Dubai, God blessed them with their daughter Hannah. As Pastor Jacob Muthalali continued his employment in Dubai, God put a burden in his heart to serve the Lord rather than continuing in the employment. After working in Dubai as a senior auditor in an accounting firm for 10 years, he obeyed the calling of the Lord in 1997 and decided to work for the Kingdom of God. He left the job and chose to pursue studying the word of God which would prepare him for full-time ministry. Doors were opened for him to continue his studies, as God brought him to the United States where he attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He completed his Master of Divinity in 2000 and received his ordination from Assemblies of God in Springfield, Missouri in November of 2002. The hunger to further study the word of God allowed him to earn the Doctor of Ministry (D. Min.) from Oral Roberts University in 2003. After receiving his D. Min., the Lord led him to write two books titled: Heal the Sick in the Name of Jesus Christ and Learn to Pray. He continued to serve the Lord in ministries and in pastoral role as God led him. He received ordination from Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) in July 2011.
