I married Maria Luisa Grageda in August of 2009 in Guatemala. We now live with her five children: Carlos, Jairo, Amner, Greylin, and Kathrine in San Benito. I also have a daughter Jessica (Cica) Kathleen and a son Christopher Michael Stauffer. (deceased)
I am a graduate of Johnstown Senior High School, Class of 1982. I attended Charis Bible College, Colorado where I served as a prayer minister with Andrew Wommack Ministries phone center and Gospel Truth Seminars. After graduating Charis Bible College in 2006 I attended missionary training at Calvary International.
During my training at Calvary International God led me to stay in Guatemala and start DSI Ministries and the Hands in Action Project in San Benito, Guatemala.
I served as a youth pastor for over eighteen years in two churches: Hilltop Baptist Church, Johnstown, PA and Hope Chapel of Colorado Springs, Co. I have also preached and taught the Word of God in churches, bible studies and rehabilitation centers in several countries around the world.
With over 30 years in personal recovery from drug and alcohol addictions I have worked with other alcoholics and addicts in twelve-step programs, introducing them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
