Rev. Joghinda Gangar graduated in 1984 from Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, CA. He was ordained in the Christian Reformed Church in 1986 and served churches in Calgary and Wellandport in Canada. Since 1998, he has been serving Trinity URC in Walnut Creek. Rev. Gangar was born in Punjab, India, and raised in England. He is married to Sheena and has seven children who ranged in age from 20 years to 6 years.

In February 2004, Rev. Gangar and his brother, also a minister, went on a mission trip to Punjab, their birthplace. This was the first time they had visited Punjab since they left as children 43 years ago. They were enthusiastically received and held three evangelistic meetings, each with about 300 present. Rev. Gangar desires to see this opportunity for missions continue and grow since the people seem to be open to the gospel.
