CBM is pleased to be developing new and existing partnerships in Asia beyond India. Since these areas do not fall under previously existing field oversight, CBM has appointed Suraj Komaravalli to extend his leadership responsibilities to encompass these exciting initiatives in Central Asia and the Philippines, thereby expanding his role as the Asia Team Leader effective February 1, 2023.

In this role, Suraj hopes to bring a sustainable approach to existing and new projects with our partner in the Philippines, as well as to new partnerships unfolding in the area. He asks for your prayers as he seeks God’s wisdom and guidance in these added responsibilities and for the Team Leaders meeting which will take place in Canada in May.

In 2008, Suraj first joined CBM as a theological education consultant with the India Strategy Team. He was named Team Leader for CBM’s ministries in India in 2013. In this role, he helped develop CBM Integral Mission strategies while managing partnerships.

John Chan, Director of International Partnerships says: “We are thankful for Suraj’s dedicated service and leadership within CBM and his willingness to take on new responsibilities that will enable the expansion of ministry opportunities across the organization.”

Suraj has been a lecturer and teacher at several colleges and universities. He has a Bachelor of Science from Calcutta University, a Bachelor of Divinity from Serampore College, a Master of Theology from United Theological College and a Doctor of Philosophy in New Testament from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Suraj lives in Hyderabad with his wife Prasanna, and two daughters, Selina and Mounica.


Pray for wisdom and guidance to strategically move the projects in the Philippines to a more sustainable approach.

Pray for the on-going projects in India and the Philippines as they serve people by empowering and transforming their lives.
