Manny is an alumni of La Sierra University. Upon graduating in 2007, he received a call to pastoral ministry with inner city youth in Los Angeles. A few years later, at the age of 29, he planted Resurrection SDA Church, a vibrant congregation focused on reaching the dechurched and unchurched in Southern California. In addition to this, he has recently taken on the challenge of leading a second congregation, Lighthouse SDA Church, a growing community in Glendale, California.
As passionate as he is about ministry, he considers his greatest accomplishment to be marrying Keren, the girl of his dreams, and raising two beautiful girls: Sophia Xareni and Karissa Bella.
