Juan Carlos Arevalo

Juan Carlos Arevalo was born and raised in Guatemala. He arrived to the US at the age of 20.

He is a second generation of a Pastoral family and has served in church since he was 9 years old. When he was 18, Juan Carlos and his brothers were part of a Christian Spanish Rock group called 'Peniel Systems' and they traveled all across the US and Central America.

Juan Carlos is a Director for an organization called Koinonia, where he has lead and helped pastors from all across Los Angeles for the past 14 years. Through this organization, he has helped plant multiple churches throughout the city.

In 2017, Juan Carlos joined our team here at Light and Life Christian Fellowship and became our Spanish Lead Pastor. Alongside his wife of 37 years, Betty Arevalo, they have helped lead a whole new generation of Christ Followers from all across Central and South America. In 2021, Juan Carlos helped us plant a new Luz Y Vida branch in Guatemala in an effort to continue expanding our global missions.

'Our desire is to continue being a bridge between us and the new generation.'
