Julio Pacheco

El Salvador

Service Area: International

Ministry Focus

Julio’s ministry focus is in western El Salvador, where more than half of the population does not know Jesus Christ. He has a fervent passion to establish churches throughout several cities in El Salvador, such as Sonsonate and Ahuachapan. His mission is to plant at least three churches within the next ten years.

Faith Story

Julio met Jesus in 1981 on a Saturday morning while reading the Bible for the first time. He was 17 years old.

His wife, Ana, was raised in a Christian family, but her confession of faith was made in 1984. She was soon baptized and became a youth leader at the church where she and Julio first met.


Julio and Ana have two daughters: Dina Patricia (29), who is married and has one child herself, and Karina Ivette (27).


General bachelor’s degree from the National Institute of Coatepeque, Santa Ana, El Salvador.
