The Apostle of Jesus Christ, Naason Joaquin Garcia
The Apostle of Jesus Christ, Naason Joaquin Garcia, is the International Director of The Light of the World Church. He was born on May 7, 1969 in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Since an early age, he has dedicated his life to serving God. At age 14, he was responsible for guiding and advising a youth group in the Church of Guadalajara. During this time, he strived to be an example of commitment and dedication in the work of evangelization bringing the message of love and salvation to souls. In this period of time, he was sent as a missionary to Spain and Portugal, where the work of evangelization was just beginning.
He was married on June 14, 1992 with sister Alma Zamora with whom he has 3 children: Adoraim, Eldai and Sibma.
For 22 years he was a minister of the Church in several cities of the United States. The first church was Phoenix, Arizona followed by several cities in California: Huntington Park, North Hollywood, Santa Maria, Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Ana. He was anointed as a Deacon in 1994 and as Pastor in 2000. From 2003 to 2014 he was appointed Director of the Northern Jurisdiction of the Church in Mexico, which includes all of the states that border with the United States.
During this time, he designed and organized Communication Center Berea USA (CCB USA), a non-profit information organization that began its work in August 2009 with a focus on culture and a strong presence in social networks.
He placed a special interest in his continued efforts in maintaining a separation of church and state. Over five years of tenure as Jurisdictional Director, he traveled to various cities where he organized forums, symposiums and press conferences to foster mutual respect and a continued support in favor of separation of church and state.
In 2012 he inaugurated the Sämann University of Jalisco – Tijuana Campus, which is a higher educational institute that promotes the furthering of education in this border city. It was designed with the vision to create an affordable educational institute where young people from both southern California and northern Mexico could further their studies and fulfill their dreams regardless of their economic limitations.
8th of December, 2014
On December 8, 2014, after the passing of Apostle Samuel Joaquin Flores, brother Naason Joaquin Garcia received the divine calling to commence the Ministry of his Apostleship-a new era of dispensation, and to embrace the noble leadership of the Church which had reached a presence in 50 nations worldwide. His calling in this new era was manifested to the Church on December 14, 2014.
From the moment of his calling, the Apostle of Jesus Christ began a worldwide missionary tour to travel to the different cities, towns and countries where the Church has an existing membership and to bring the news of salvation to all humanity, since one of the premises that he preaches is, that the Gospel is inclusive and does not discriminate between languages, race or nationalities.
The gospel also considers that education is the basis of family development. One of its social priorities is to promote the creation of educational training and entrepreneurship centers to reverse the effects of social underdevelopment. His spiritual mission is to ensure that the word of God is preached in all the nations of the world and that the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ be known everywhere.
