Jonatán

Jonatán Tejel Subirada is the seventh Pathfinder Director of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. A PK (pastor’s kid), Jonatán is accustomed to changes. As is common for pastoral families, his family moved frequently until they settled in Madrid, Spain, where Jonatán spent his adolescent years.

Pako

Pako Mokgwane is the first born child of Thulaganyo and Masego Mokgwane and has two siblings, Boikgapo and Ogaufi and his wife, Ayakha. Pako is a Pastor's Kid. Traveling from place to place improved his social skills because he was able to interact with different kinds of people. He is inspired by the lyrics of the hymn "We Speak of the Realms." It awakens the reality of the Maranatha motif—Jesus is coming again!

    Our Theme

    #powerofone
    We are a global movement of destiny, united in purpose and mission, yet diverse in culture, language, geography, economy, and heritage. It is through the power of Christ and His Spirit that we can celebrate our unity in the midst of such diversity. In a world of ethnic and national divide, this exquisite expression of unity in Jesus is the most powerful expression of the reality of the gospel in the midst of God’s people.
