Associate Satellite Director
Gustavo was born in Guatemala City, where he finished high school and began studies at the University Mariano Galvez of Guatemala in Systems Engineering. For financial reasons he was unable to continue and immigrated to the U.S. in 1985. He worked at LA Envelope Inc. (1989 through 2014), the first year as a driver, and the rest as an Industrial Mechanic.
Gustavo surrendered his life to Christ in 2001 at a Celebration Christian Church (a World Impact church plant) retreat at World Impact's camp, THE OAKS. During his 11 years at Celebration Church he married his lovely wife, Consuelo.
He attended the Christian Seminary “El Camino” (East Los Angeles) from 2001 through 2004, and later completed his Bachelors and Masters in Theology at California Christian University in 2011. Gustavo has also served as the Hispanic Mentor for TUMI Los Angeles since 2011, and is now the Hispanic Community Liaison, pursuing his dream of planting urban churches.
