Rev. Jonás  Pérez, Association Mission Strategist for Rowan County

Rev. Jonás Pérez was born and raised in the Andes, Venezuela. 

Married to Ingrid Perez. They have three children, Abigail, David, and Judith. Rev. Pérez earned his undergraduate in Architecture in 1993 from the Universidad del Táchira in San Cristóbal, Venezuela. 

The Perez family  moved to North Carolina in 1996, following Jonas'  vision for a better training as a Music minister, organist and youth leader. Adopted and supported by Parkwood Baptist Church, in Concord, where he was licensed in 1997, ordained in 1998. Rev. Pérez received his Master's in Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary at Wake Forest in 2001.

Rev. Pérez planted a bilingual church in Cabarrus County called First International Baptist or  Iglesia Bautista Internacional de Concord. He also taught Spanish at Stanly Community College until 2008. He completed a Master's in Spanish Language and Culture in Salamanca Spain in 2006.

Rev. Pérez is concerned that every church member will be able to pray daily for a revival in the USA and all over the Americas. The need for prayer is for  our local and State Government and the salvation of lost people.  He stresses on every church and pastoral visit, that everyone should be able to clearly articulate a testimony and God's Salvation plan. 

He wants to assist churches and pastors in outreach to their community, evangelism, mission to unreached groups within Rowan county and around the world.
