About Me


I’m currently a youth pastor at the International Full Gospel Fellowship in Los Angeles. As a 23 year old, I’m working towards my Bachelors in Biblical Studies.

I came into a relationship with Jesus Christ in fall of 2010 during my first semester of college. While I was in high school, I did everything and anything I felt like, but something was always missing. My efforts to find fulfillment always came up short and often got me into a lot of trouble. But Jesus gave me a fresh start. He showed me that true fulfillment comes from knowing him and partnering with him. 

Early in my faith I gained a passion to lead. I realized that God could use anyone who is willing to learn and make himself/herself available. As I pursue God's calling for my life, I want to share with you the things I learn along the way; whether it be a devotional or an article on leadership; in hopes that it will be of some benefit to you. 

My ultimate prayer is that we will be a blessing to the world. 

"Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing [...] and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." (Genesis 12:1-4, NRSV) 

Blessings,

John Mendez
