Julio Velandia

Julio and his wife, Tatyana have served in pastoral ministry for the past 20 years. Natives of Bogota, Colombia, Julio and his family moved to Virginia in 2022 because God called them to minister to the Hispanic community of Franklin County. Their desire is that Spanish speakers would know God and live transformed lives by the Gospel. Julio and Tatyana have one daughter, Sofia, who actively serves in ministry with them. Julio’s driving purpose comes from the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 5:15 “and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
