Our Pastor

Cupar Baptish Church Pastor


Rev. Yeshwanth Bakka Vemana hails from Andhra Pradesh, India. He has an Electrical and Electronics Engineering degree from Jawaharlal Technological University, India. However, after receiving God’s call for a full-time ministry, Yeshwanth joined the Bachelor of Divinity 2008 in Union Biblical Seminary (affiliated with the Senate of Serampore University). During this time, Yeshwanth was convinced that God was calling him to be a ‘missionary teacher’, and so he joined Nepal Ebenezer Bible College, Nepal, as a faculty member. From 2012 to 2015, Yeshwanth served as a teacher in the college, teaching and mentoring local Nepali students for God’s ministry. In 2016, Yeshwanth returned to India to complete his postgraduate studies in the Old Testament at Union Biblical Seminary. Later, he joined the same college as a faculty member in the Department of Biblical Studies – Old Testament. He served the college in teaching and mentoring students before he arrived in Scotland to do his PhD. Yeshwanth is pursuing his PhD in the School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews. His research interests are Biblical studies and theology, especially the Dead Sea Scrolls. God led Yeshwanth to Cupar Baptist church to be a minister on a part-time basis. On 11th March 2023, he was inducted as a minister in the church. Interestingly, God led Yeshwanth to this church, which once offered some monetary help to the Senate of Serampore in 1828 – the university from which Yeshwanth received his theological degrees twice. There are no coincidences in God’s plan but only His unwavering grace and will that ordains our path. Yeshwanth is blessed with Sapana, his wife, who is from Nepal. By profession, she is a Nurse, but currently, she works as a carer for an agency. Yeshwanth and Sapana were blessed with two children, Sarah (eight years old) and Elijah (six years old). Together, they feel blessed to serve Cupar Baptist church and the town.
