T. Bakshi along with his family have committed their lives to serve Christ. In the year 2010 God gave them a vision to pioneer the ministry – ‘The Well Diggers’. The vision of this ministry is to prepare the ground for people to ENCOUNTER GOD. In the Gospel of John Chapter 4 Jesus meets a Samaritan woman at the well of Jacob and this encounter changes everything about this woman and impacts Samaria. This is what The Well Diggers is about.
The mission of this ministry is to spread the Gospel and share the goodness of the Lord . It focuses on preaching the good news, planting Churches and rendering help like providing education, medical aid, counseling, feeding the hungry and being a channel of the physical and emotional healing that only God can provide.

Pastor Bakshi comes from a traditional Hindu Bengali family and came to know Jesus in the year 1999. He has worked in the corporate world for more than 14 years. During this time he and his wife worked between children living in the slums. Then he served as an Associate Pastor with Abundant Life Church in Delhi and after which he was lead to pioneer The Well Diggers Church in Goa.
He says that “I believe God has plans for everyone as He has for me. I was living in a place of no hope and darkness being caught up in all kinds of false practices and when I was at the lowest point of my life, where I was not sure of the next step, I encountered Jesus in a small room and that one event changed my life. If this encounter can change me it can change anyone.”
In the year 2010 he got married to Neha and in the year 2013 God blessed them with a daughter. Neha is a compassionate leader who has a passion to work among women and teens.
