José Salvador “Chity” Escobar Cortéz, Apopa Campus Pastor & Director of IDEM

Bachelor’s Degree of Theology, in progress

When Chity graduated from High School in 1991 he was determined to live his life to the fullest. He had a bright future, good friends, and a good family, in short, almost everything. Although he believed in God, he had never imagined that he could ever really need Him. That was until he had a near drowning accident in the ocean. This incident caused him to realize that without Christ he was lost and condemned to hell. This very day, alone in his room, he made the decision to initiate a personal relationship with God. By invitation from friends, a few months later, he was attending Vida Nueva Baptist Church, meeting with the youth group, receiving discipleship, participating in retreats and going out on the evangelistic campaigns. Later he began to lead a small group, study in the seminary and begin to sense the very intense call of God upon his life. READ MORE>

David was born on July 11, 1983 into a Christian home and family. He attended Sunday school from the time he was a baby. He accepted Christ at the age of 7.

The conflicts in his life were becoming greater until one day, in a state of crisis at age 17. He decided to cry out for God’s help. He remembers talking with God and asking Him to change his tempestuous life into calm. God answered his prayer and David decided from that moment forward to never turn back and to only focus his life to serve the King. READ MORE
