About My Family

I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour on September 9, 1986. I am currently serving as senior pastor of Glorious Hope Christian Fellowship (GHCF), while helping pastor another church.

I am retired but still also doing store designs as a freelance designer. I've been married to my lovely wife, Mirasol, since 1977. We have been blessed with two wonderful children, Jason Jeff and Joan Sue. Jason is married to Aline, and they have two children, Jalen and Aeson. Joan is married to Johnathan, and they have three sons, Joel and twins Jeremih and Jayden.

About My Church Plant

GHCF is a church replant that was previously named Heaven Sent Christian Fellowship, which started in 2014. We began the process of replanting in September 2019. In 2020, the church leadership called me to lead Saturday services while I was still leading Sunday services at another church.

Since 2020, we have had five believers obey the Lord in water baptism and continue serving Him. We have a virtual prayer meeting every Tuesday night at 8:00, in-person worship at 10:30 a.m. every Saturday, and Discovery Bible Study class immediately follows worship.

Though we are in a pandemic, more brethren (not the seniors yet) are attending our in-person services. Just last Saturday, 22 adults and nine children were in attendance.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


Pray for my whole family as we grow and work together in ministry. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities, too. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray for brethren that they will continually be faithful and also invite their friends/co-workers to attend our services and Bible studies.


Build relationships with a church planter, team members and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards. Help others in evangelism (as we ourselves are doing) and missions endeavors.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
