RAFAEL & JESSICA PAEZ
Our Pastors, Rafael & Jessica Paez
I grew up in the streets of Greenspoint Houston and Jessica grew up in the valley of Northern California. For most of my teenage years, I rebelled and was involved in the Northside Houston street culture. My biggest dream was to be a professional basketball player, I’m 5’8 so that didn’t work out to well.
Jessica, on the other hand, was a good girl who loved Jesus and dreamed of being a teacher. At seventeen when I was broken, lost and without purpose, God saved me! Once I understood the greatness of God’s love, the depth of His forgiveness and His endless supply of grace, hope overwhelmed my soul and I was never the same again! It was then that I felt a burning in my heart to preach the life-changing message of Jesus.
After a few years, Jessica and I met and we were married in 2005. Since then, God has blessed us with four awesome children – Micah, Isabella, Ezra and Elena. I worked in Oil and Gas and volunteered at our church as a youth pastor until Jessica and I were convinced that God called us to plant a church that would reach our city. We’re excited to launch The Anchor and more excited to see what God will do in and through your life!
