About Us

Our History


"Highest Praise" under the banner of Jesus Saves Ministries started its youth meeting in the year 2009 at a small church compound in the western suburbs of the so called City of Dreams Mumbai, India. It was conceived in the mind of God and passed on to Pastor Nainan Jose, who then shared the vision with few young men and women who had the deepest desire and the passion to serve the Lord. After 2 long years of prayer and commitment, on 5th June 2011, Highest Praise Worship Service was started. Today it is a full-fledged vibrant church with people from different backgrounds, cast, creed and religion coming together with a common goal of knowing Jesus Christ and making Him known to the world around. It has been a wonderful journey so far, and we're looking forward for greater adventures ahead.
