Jamie and Yolanda Santos
Born in Brooklyn, NY, pastor Jamie is the
youngest of eight children.
When he was still young his family moved to
Brentwood, NY where he graduated from Brentwood
"As a new Christian in my junior year of high school I established a fellowship
of students meeting at Knight of Columbus and we began to pray for the school and staff and share the gospel to all the students. Sensing the call of God for more, I turned down a scholarship for soccer and went to a bible training school called Rhema in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. After completing one year I returned home to my local church where I served faithfully and met my wife Yolanda. As a young couple we began to grow in faith and soon began our own family. We moved to Tampa, Florida and eventually found our way to Riverview, Florida where we now reside."
After faithfully serving in several different ministries, Pastors Jamie and Yolanda were given the opportunity to lead a group of people that led to the development of Agape Faith Fellowship Church.
"In fulfilling the office of a Pastor, my wife and I have faithfully served our congregation in helping them overcome life's obstacles by faith and in God's love (1 John 5:4; 2 Timothy 1:13). God has reminded me of His word in 1 Peter 5:3 'Don't lord it over the people assigned to your care but lead them by your own good example...'. This is what God has instructed me to do by bringing a people closer to Him and helping them build a solid relationship with God by faith. We encourage our congregation to hunger after God, to make Jesus the center of their lives and to share God's love to others, so they can become an 'epistle....known and read by all men' (2 Corinthians 3:2)."
