Biography

Balajied Nongrum currently serves as the lead consultant of research and apologetics for Reasons to Believe Asia-Pacific (RTB A-Pac). He holds a bachelor’s degree in veterinary science from the Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University, Hyderabad. After completing his master’s degree in philosophy and religion, he went on to pursue a second master’s in science and religion from Biola University, USA.

During his undergraduate studies, Balajied began grappling to understand meaning and purpose and how they are tied together with one’s existence. His transition from skeptic to ardent follower of Christ was dramatic when he learned Jesus is not only Savior but also the One who bestowed meaning to life. Thus began his journey of discovery in the pursuit of a relationship with Jesus as well as the conviction to proclaim him as Lord and Savior to others.

For the past 15 years, Balajied has served in various capacities internationally as both a speaker and trainer, equipping Christians to demonstrate the truth of the gospel and to engage non-Christians in productive dialogue. He has spoken widely on diverse subjects including ethics, philosophy, culture, science, and religion and has helped supervise training programs in Christian apologetics. His articles have appeared in A Slice of Infinity and Engage, magazines that address the topics of Christianity and its cultural relevance, as well as in the peer-reviewed Indian Theological Journal. He maintains a blog at balajiednongrum.wordpress.com where he pursues his area of interest in the intersection between science and the Christian faith.

Balajied has had the privilege of speaking in various academic institutions in India and abroad. When commending the love of Christ in schools, colleges, universities, and on the radio, his efforts have always been undergirded by apologetics. He is passionate about defending his faith and talking about the uniqueness of Christ.

At the invitation of the Election Commission, Balajied spoke on ethical voting in the specially curated Shillong Talks, ahead of the 2019 general elections in India. He has been part of similar strategic state government initiatives on peace, which have resulted in positive outcomes.

Balajied and his wife, Coniefer, make their home in the beautiful hill-station of Shillong with their son, Jedidiah.
