Marco Barrientos

Marco grew up in the church but had a radical encounter with Jesus as he was studying marketing and playing college football at SMU. He was pursuing his dream of playing pro, but God had another plan. Marco went on to attend Hillsong International Leadership College training in pastoral leadership as he knew he was being called to a life of ministry. He then moved to Argentina and stepped in as the creative pastor for Hillsong Latin America. After spending two years in Argentina, he was called back to the USA where he has been passionately pursuing God’s calling in his life through working with the marginalized, evangelizing and discipling those around him. Marco has a deep passion and desire to bring the Gospel to places where it is rarely made available, to see the Church united and come alive by the power and grace of the Holy Spirit. He lives by this scripture, “God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16)
