Jared and Laurie Garcia
Jared and Laurie serve in the Philippines 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. Laurie has been interested in missions since a teenager, taking trips to Utah, China, and the Philippines. 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.
