Danny Punnose – VP of GFA World (Gospel for Asia)
Topics: India, Persecution, Global Water problems
Vice President Daniel Punnose brings a lifetime of experience to his role leading GFA’s U.S. office and communicating the vision of the organization’s multi-faceted work across South Asia.
The son of GFA founder Dr. K.P. Yohannan, born in the U.S., Daniel grew up in GFA, regularly traveling to India with his father to see the group’s work. A personal experience as a young man in which he felt called to help share the gospel with those who have not heard it led him to embrace GFA’s vision as his own.
After high school, he studied at a seminary in India, graduating with a theological degree. He served with GFA in Delhi, and later Nepal—where he worked in some of the most unreached areas of the country—before returning to South India.
Now based at GFA’s international headquarters in Wills Point, Texas, Daniel travels widely to speak on behalf of the ministry at churches and conferences.
In addition, he has been consecrated a bishop in Believers Eastern Church, GFA’s field partner ministry in South Asia.
Daniel and his wife, Erika, who serves alongside him in GFA, have three children.
About GFA World
Since 1979, GFA has been committed to serving the “least of these” in Asia, often in places where no one else is serving, so they can experience the love of God for the first time. GFA supports national workers serving as the hands and feet of Christ in four main ways. Sponsoring national missionaries to minister to people’s needs, sponsoring children, investing in community development and helping families in need of care or during disasters.
