Reverend Jose and Marianela Santiago
Reverend Jose and Marianela Santiago have been the Senior Pastors of CCC since 2007. Their vision and passion has always been to restore and strengthen families in their communities and help lead people to have an intimate relationship with God.
Reverend Jose Santiago was mentored by Reverend Pla where he served alongside him as a youth leader and later his associate pastor. Reverend Jose Santiago currently sits on the national board of directors for the Defenders of the Christian Faith Movement for the past 7 years. He also travels throughout the world with the Timothy Program International teaching basic Hebrew and equipping Bible students with the tools necessary to discover important, life-changing truths from God’s Word and to become a “doer” of God’s Word.
Marianela was trained and mentored by her Father, Reverend Eymeris Acevedo, where she served in many capacities including leading the youth and serving on the worship team. Marianela Santiago has helped translate the Bible curriculum to Spanish for both the Timothy Program International and the Defenders of the Christian Faith Movement. She also continues to serve as a translator, not only in her local church, but also for many speakers and organizations throughout the country.
Reverend Jose Santiago and Marianela Santiago have been married since 2003, and after many years of tears and prayers, God blessed them with a son, Levi, in 2015.
