Pastor Niko Njotorahardjo is the founder and senior pastor of GEREJA BETHEL INDONESIA, “Gatot Subroto” in Jakarta. He began this congregation with 400 attendees in 1988, now has grown to more than 300,000 members, 1.200 satellite branches, and 8.200 cell-groups. God had placed a divine call on him to become Indonesia’s first full-time worshipper, and with that came a special calling to lead worshippers into the presence of God. The Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee, USA established the “Niko Njotoraharjo Chair For The Restoration of The Tabernacle of David” to ensure that Biblical principles of prayer, praise and worship are an integral part of the seminary and the global church. Pastor Niko also received several awards for his worship albums and his ministry for conducting 314 Healing Crusades. He received two honorary doctor degrees, Doctor of Divinity from the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee, USA (2001); Doctor of Theology from the Hansei University in Seoul, Korea (2014). He envisions that his network of global congregations would be known for their love for the hurting and needy.
