Krishna and Asha Napit

Alameda, CA 94501
Krishna Napit is the lead church planter of Bay and Beyond Church in San Francisco, Calif. The mission of Bay and Beyond Church is to expand the kingdom of God in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond by making disciples who make other disciples and planting churches that plant churches. There are about half a million South Asians who live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area most of whom work and live in cities in and around the Silicon Valley. About 250,000 of them are from India and a large majority of them work in many IT and other tech companies. Less than 2 percent of the South Asians in the Silicon Valley are Christians. Bay and Beyond Church is a church where non-Christians get to experience God’s love and grace to be saved through faith in Jesus Christ and where Christians glorify God by obeying Christ by serving people, making disciples and planting churches that plant churches. We seek your prayers for a sponsoring church and several supporting churches to enable Bay and Beyond Church to fulfill the mission of expanding the kingdom of God in the Bay Area and beyond by making disciples who make other disciples and planting churches that plant churches.
