Jason Saldana

Jason Saldana, a native of Twin Falls, Idaho, grew up under the guidance of his grandfather, Pastor Saul Saldana, and his cherished grandmother, Pompella Saldana. The pair worked together to establish Spanish-speaking churches throughout Southern Idaho. Jason's spiritual journey began in a small-town church in Twin Falls, where Chaplain Dutch Zuiderveld played a crucial role in his discipleship, leading him to embrace the redemptive message of Jesus Christ. He finds great fulfillment in delving into theological and Christian philosophical studies, dedicating himself to serving the Lord in any way that he is called. Jason and his wife Kelly exchanged vows on October 10, 2020, and have discovered a nurturing spiritual community at Community Christian Church.
