Our Story: Where We Began
Our founder pastor, Robert Leija Jr was born and raised in the south side of San Antonio. Since childhood he was instructed in the ways of the Lord by his parents Robert and Juanita Leija. By the age of twelve there was a complete turn around in how he was brought up. His life was introduced to drugs and alcohol leading him to gang affiliation. it was there that he remained for seven years living the prodigal life. When no one could change the road he was on God sent him a young lady by the name of Lorraine Aguilar who would eventually become his wife. This young lady was the instrument in helping him see that life had more to offer than what he was already living.
In time, they started to attend church and God began to work in their lives. In May 7th, 1995 Robert and Lorraine gave their lives to the Lord at the age of 19 at a bible study group. God immediately started a powerful work in their lives and they began their journey working within the youth ministry. Within four years, they completed bible school and opened up a mission work in the back of their home. By the year 2003, they were ordained and launched into Pastoral Ministry. Since then, they have both served in the Southside of San Antonio and now the Greater Westside of San Antonio working to restore families back to God.
