Andres Fajardo was redeemed by the grace of Jesus at age 17 and God has been mercifully at work to conform Andres to Jesus' image ever since. He and Juliet Lee Fajardo (an architect) have been married for 10 years and are blessed with two sons, ages 6 and 9. Before being ordained as a pastor in 2002, Andres worked imperfectly as a community organizer, teacher, and manager in Christ-centered economic development among the poor in Latin America and the US. Since 1998 Andres has lived and served in the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Hunting Park as a pastor and health center Chaplain. For Andres, the Planted vision combination of thorough Biblical discipleship, income-generating small scale farming, and koinonia Body life presents a wonderful context for young adults to develop as lifelong sacrificial ambassadors of Christ to the world. May the Lord be the Foundation of our lives!
