Pastor Juan was born on October 6, 1973 in Mexico City. He is the only son of a single mother. His mother met the Lord at an early age and taught him about faith in God.
Since a small child he attended church and was one of the most restless and untidy children. As a young man he served as leader, coordinator, preacher and in missions at the Horeb Baptist Church in Mexico City.
Missions was one of the favorite activities, resulting in the founding of the San Pablo Atlazalpan Church, in the state of Mexico (it is a church that still exists). It was during this time that God called him to serve, but he decides to leave it for later.
At age 24 he met Judith and they decide to get married. One year later, Arantza would be born (oldest daughter). With her came a big challenge, since they decide to go and live in Hawaii for academic reasons. Juan and his family attended church at this paradise like setting where God reminded him once again about his calling.
Juan decides to obey the call of God and changed his residence to Hermosillo, Sonora (Mexico) to study in a Bible College. In his last year of preparation, God shows him the great need to preach to the Hispanic community in the United States.
In 2004, Juan and his family decide to move to Arizona. One year later the second daughter would be born (Carla).
