Jose and Clara recently joined ISMC as full-time staff in Sherbrooke, Quebec. They plan to arrive in Sherbrooke by the end of 2019’s first trimester to work as campus director and teaching director to support the ministry in Sherbrooke. Jose and Clara both have a passion for helping and leading people to fully grasp and own their faith in Jesus, so they can experience abundant life in a way that impacts other people’s life.
Jose and Clara’s home countries are Colombia and Venezuela—respectively—and are newlyweds who decided to consecrate their marriage and new family to serving God full-time.
Jose holds a Bachelor in Philosophy from the Technological University of Pereira (UTP), Colombia and he has three years of experience serving as university coordinator for CRU (Power To Change) Ministry. He also spent seven months as an exchange student at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, where he volunteered for ISMC and churches in Sherbrooke. He facilitated prayer meetings, participated to the Alpha course for international students and follow up Latin American students. Jose enjoys reading and writing about the conciliation between faith and philosophy and is currently working on his first book on ethics.
Clara is a lawyer from Venezuela and holds a LL.M. in Human Rights from King’s College London (KLC), United Kingdom. After several years working at the UN in her home country and abroad, Clara was led to put her career aside and dedicate her life to ministry works. She loves connecting with people, especially young women, and uses social media as a platform to help them begin and deepen their relationship with God. Her YouTube Channel La Vida Clara reaches more than 16,000 subscribers with workshops for single women..
Both Jose and Clara dream about seeing international students coming to Christ and supporting the nation-wide works of ISMC. They long to use their experiences to minister to students and learn from their cultures.
