He is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology and received his M.S. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After a career in safety analysis with Atomic Energy of Canada, Rev. Krishnan joined the pastoral staff of Rexdale Alliance Church in Etobikoke, Ontario, in 1980. He has served as senior pastor at Rexdale since 1997.

History of the Neal Conference

As a Covenant student, Chuck Neal's life was transformed by a series of chapel talks by Francis Schaeffer, the content of which Schaeffer soon wrote into the book True Spirituality. Years later Chuck's family made the Neal Conference on True Spirituality possible, hoping future students would also benefit from speakers exploring the core tenets of the gospel.
