Pastor - Vine Center
Pastor Mario has been living and working in Kuwait for almost 22 years. He came to Christ at the age of 32. Initially, he thought it was too late for him to serve the Lord. However, because of his passion for the Lord, he began serving the church in any way he could. He involved himself in evangelistic church outreach, personal discipleship, and in facilitating small groups. Mario credits three key leaders as his inspiration, example, and theological template for his ministry—Ptr Jerry Zandstra, Ptr. Timothy Dailey, and Ptr Allan Dytianquin. They recognized the calling in his life and encouraged him to pursue God’s purpose and destiny regardless of his age and background.
In 2005, Mario graduated with the degree Bachelor of Theological Studies at Vision International University – Kuwait campus. He currently serves as the primary pastor of Vine Center, one of LCC’s growing congregations. He loves to share his powerful testimony of how God brought him ‘from the cockpit to the pulpit’ to preach the Word and impact the world. Pastor Mario always encourages his disciples that it’s never too late to serve God and be a part of His plan in expanding the kingdom. Mario and his wife Alma have three great kids—Maureen, who is a worship leader in the music ministry, Michael, and Micah. They all serve the Lord and have embraced the vision of ‘Multiplication through Discipleship’ and the strategy to ‘win, connect, train, and send’.
