Dr. Balajied Nongrum completed his bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Science from the Acharya N.G.Ranga Agricultural University, Hyderabad. Currently he is pursuing a masters degree in science and religion from Biola University.
As a student, he was instrumental in planting a church on the campus for the benefit of the current and future students. In building bridges for evangelism, his efforts have always been undergirded by apologetics. He has been a part of the Resource Persons team since 2004 and, on completion of his studies, he formally joined the ministry team of RZIM Life Focus Society in April 2006. Defending his faith and talking on the uniqueness of Christ are some of his passions.
Balajied has spoken widely on and engaged in apologetics in schools, colleges, universities, and on the radio. He has been privileged to speak at the All India Medical Institute of Sciences (AIIMS), Hyderabad Central University, the Regional Institute of Medical Science (Imphal), the National Institute of Technology (Agartala), the Gawahati University, the North Eastern Hills University (Shillong), the Mizoram University, and the North Eastern Regional Institute of Science & Technology (Arunachal Pradesh). He has also worked with churches and para-church organizations cutting across denominational lines.
Balajied, his wife Coniefer, and their young son, Jedidiah, live in the beautiful hill station of Shillong in North-East India.
