The Department of Christian Education is overjoyed to present our new International Apostolic Bible College online campus coordinator, Pastor Steven Rodriguez. Pastor Rodriguez enters this position under the recommendation of the former coordinator, IABC Dean, Dr. Janae E. Quezada, and the Secretary of Christian Education, Bishop Armando Tamez.

Pastor Rodriguez has served for the last eight years as Lead Pastor of ‘The Family Church’ in San Jose, CA (San Jose #3). Pastor Rodriguez also occupies the office of District Treasurer for the Northern Pacific Coast District (NPCD). He attended Christian Life Center (Stockton, CA) out of high school, receiving his Associate of Arts degree in Theology.  A few years later, he attended the International Apostolic Bible College, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Theology in his home district (NPCD).  For six years, he served as Bible College Director for the NPCD (2014 – 2020) and is currently a teacher in the English AA and BA programs since 2011.  In 2020, Pastor Steven enrolled in the MTS graduate program at Urshan Graduate School of Theology (UGST).  Recently, he was accepted into the MDiv program at UGST with a concentration in Pastoral Care and Counseling.

In welcoming Pastor Rodriguez to the IABC team, we also would like to thank our IABC Dean, Dr. Janae E. Quezada for her hard work and dedication to the online campus for 8 of the last 9 years. We are excited to see the new endeavors that will come under the direction of Pastor Rodriguez as we strive to make Christian Education more accessible to Apostolics everywhere.
