Rev. Dr. K C Chacko

Senior Pastor

Pastor K.C. Chacko has more than 45 years of pastoral experience and he is currently the senior pastor of Indian Pentecostal Church, Greater Houston.

Pastor Chacko was born and brought up in an Orthodox Christian family. However, he was a teenager when he heard the gospel for the first time through his Sunday School teacher. He then trusted in Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his personal Savior. Pastor Chacko placed his faith solely in Christ to receive forgiveness of all sins and to become a part of God’s family. As Pastor Chacko continued in his Christian faith, one day during family prayer, he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and felt an urge to become a part of the Lords ministry. After this moment, Pastor Chacko knew God’s calling was on his life to be in full time ministry as a pastor.

Following, his high school graduation, Pastor Chacko graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from Mysore university and Bachelor of Divinity from Berean Baptist Seminary in Bangalore. Then he served as a pastor and worked as a theology teacher in different states of India, until 1983. He also pioneered a few churches in India during this time.

In 1984, Pastor Chacko immigrated to the United States, and joined Westminster Theological Seminary to purse a higher education. He then graduated from there with a master’s in religion and a master’s in theology. He then continued his education until he graduated with a doctorate in pastoral ministry. Since immigrating, Pastor Chacko has held pastorate in New Jersey, Toronto, Canada, and Houston, Texas.

Pastor Chacko pioneered Indian Pentecostal Church, Greater Houston in 2008 and has been serving as the senior pastor since then.

Pastor Chacko and his wife, Celine Chacko, live in Pearland, TX and have two daughters, Rachel and Debbie.
