Jose Zayas was first awakened to his mission to share the Good News as a teenager living in New York City. "In high school, I simply wanted my friends to encounter Jesus in a real way," says Jose. "Little did I know that God would open doors to allow me to share with millions of people around the globe in the decades that followed." Today, Jose is active in global mission- speaking at festivals, conferences, and outreaches across the United States, Europe and Africa through Jose Zayas Evangelism International. Jose is also committed to local mission- serving as lead pastor of 26 West Church in Portland, Oregon, where he is passionately helping followers of Jesus live on mission to their city.
