Member Highlight: Michael & Julissa Juarbe
Michael & Julissa Juarbe are two Willow Creek Church members that I strongly encourage you to get to know! This sweet family (including their children Caleb & Eliana) lives to glorify God and serve our local church.
Michael & Julissa met in New York, where both were serving in ministry at different churches. As they grew spiritually, they also grew in love with one another and got married. The Juarbe's moved to Florida approximately 5 years ago.
As far as serving in the church, Michael is a talented musician, and uses those gifts on our worship team. He also leads a small group with Julissa that meets on Sunday afternoons, and is excited to potentially add a few more members into their group. Michael attends the Spanish speaking Bible study and small group. Michael has expressed a desire to serve as a bridge to help connect individuals across cultural lines and point them to what we have in common, namely a love of Jesus Christ.
Julissa is a talented artist, cook, and loves to serve her family at home. In regards to the church, Julissa serves with our preschool children on Sunday mornings, is actively involved in the small group and Spanish speaking Bible study and small group. Julissa regulalry has a smile on her face, and is very kind to everyone that she meets!
We are so thrilled to recognize the efforts of the Juarbe's to serve the church and be involved in the midst of raising young children. Michael & Julissa view themselves as being responsible for pointing their children to what is the most important priority in their lives, namely to live for the glory of Jesus!
Thank you so much Michael & Julissa Juarbe (as well as Caleb & Eliana) for your love and care for Willow Creek Church! We are proud of you!
