Santiago graduated with his M.Div. from The Master's Seminary in 2018, where he has also continued studying for his Th.M. Santiago and Juliana were trained in ministry at Grace Community Church where Santiago gained experience as a Bible teacher and Biblical conferences coordinator for Spanish speakers from Latin America. The elders of Grace Community Church decided to support the future ministry of this family in Cali, Colombia (Santiago and Juliana are originally from Colombia).
The Armels have a passion to see souls to come to repentance and for the name of Jesus Christ to be glorified in all nations. For this reason, since 2019 Santiago has been training a team of believers in Cali, Colombia to plant a church and establish a training center for pastors in this city.
