Iskandar was raised in a Muslim family in Indonesia. At the age of 28, he became a Christian and realized Jesus brought peace and joy to his life in a way no one and nothing else could. Following his conversion, he realized he was called to be involved in ministry and attended a Bible school for pastoral training. While Iskandar has only been involved in ministry for a couple years, he is effectively ministering to the Christian and Islamic people in Indonesia as a church planter and pastor. Iskandar serves alongside his wife, Welianse, and their two children.
