Mario Zamorano has been a pastor and Bible teacher since 2007. He was appointed with Missions Door on July 25, 2014 to continue the ministry he’s been doing in Southern California.
He has led a weekly Bible study for addicts in North Hollywood for six years, and he currently ministers to addicts in the San Fernando Valley, San Pedro and various places in between.
Mario has a passion for the Lord and His Word. His vision and mission are to help addicts recover and bring them into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.
Mario had been rebellious and had problems with drugs and the law ever since the age of 12. When he was 26 two significant things happened in his life. He began to recover from heroin addiction and he met Camille, the woman who would later become his wife.
However for the next ten years Mario continued in a life of self-destruction. He also continued to have problems with the law. It was only after a federal indictment and the death of Mario’s close friend that Camille was able to help Mario give his life to Jesus Christ.
He and his family began attending church at Calvary Chapel, and it was there that Mario began to grow and mature in the Word of God. He began to serve in various ministries at the church and then attended Bible College.
Mario and Camille met in 1990. They were married on August 9, 1997. Today Mario and Camille have four children: Lorenzo, Priscilla, Mario Jr., and Roy.
