Jared Garcia

Jared serves in the Philippines together with Lauren because they believe God’s glory is displayed most visibly through healthy churches (Eph 3:10, 21), and they want to see this happen in the northern Philippines. Prior to becoming a full-time global worker, Jared served as one of the pastors at Emmanuel Bible Church in Mauldin, SC, while finishing seminary. Jared’s ministry focuses on revitalizing a hub church in Baguio City, training local pastors, and assisting in planting churches in northern Luzon. Laurie desires to make disciples among Filipino women. They have one son, Carson. The Garcias are sent out from Emmanuel Bible Church.
