Juan and Melissa will be planting a church in Medellin, Colombia. They will be implementing small groups, Bible studies, and discipleship of all ages.
Juan is a pastor and church planter from Bogotá, Colombia. He has served in ministry for sixteen years; working as a youth pastor, worship leader, and in the lead Pastoral role. He has graduated with his Bachelors of Theological studies from Central American Theological Seminary (SETECA) and will begin his Master's degree through Dallas Theological Seminary. Melissa was a former missionary in Colombia, developing a children's ministry outreach program consisting of Bible clubs, kids rallies, ESL, orphanage work, and multiple discipleship groups.

Their burden and passion are to reach a lost and broken neighborhood, called Envigado, which currently has few Bible-believing churches or active evangelism.
