Christy Rose Dondapati

Founder of Redeem Ministries

Edward’s wife, Christy Rose, did her MA Theology at SAIACS. In the recent past, she was burdened to minister to the eunuchs and gays and therefore started a church for LGBT community at Eluru. Now, by the grace of God, Redeem Ministry grew to eight churches – for Hijras at Eluru, Sarpavaram, Palakole, Vijayawada, and Bhimavaram; and for gays at Amalapuram and Kakinada. The gay culture has become rampant in India after the government-legalized homosexuality, which anyhow was reversed by the Supreme Court. Edward and Christy are happy to be part of this unique ministry, which is very challenging in many ways. Apart from these churches, God also laid a burden to start a Church in the rural area of Bangalore, Yerrappannahalli. A Few years back the villagers never allowed a pastor to start a church but now by the grace of God, Redeem church is growing steadily. Christy and Edward are blessed with two daughters Sharon and Ruth
