Rev. Dr. JP Sundararajan

“We are ordinary people called to do extraordinary things,” says JP Sundararajan. Sundararajan grew up in Bangalore, India, a city of 12 million people, and after graduating high school, attended Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, a city of about 6,000. It was there that he first learned about the Reformed Church in America. After starting as a biology major with the hopes of returning to India as a medical missionary, he felt his calling change. He graduated with a degree in psychology in 2000, then moved to Holland, Michigan, where he received his M.Div. from Western Theological Seminary (2003) and met his wife, Katy. He has since completed a Doctor of Ministry degree (May 2022).

Prior to serving as Director of RCA Global Mission, Sundararajan has served as an RCA missionary with Audio Scripture Ministries and recorded the Bible in almost 100 languages. He has also partnered with World Cassette Outreach of India to work in more than 13,000 villages in India and completed a project that provided audio Bibles to more than 30,000 families. Current projects involve working with people on the margins: people stigmatized by leprosy or visual impairments, people who are non-literate, and people who are victims of exploitation and trafficking. He also developed a smartphone app to help uniquely meet this need. The app (HUM Audio Bible) was released in 2020 and currently has over 70,000 downloads with tens of thousands of people actively using it.
