Juan David Calderón

Ministry Journey

Giro Ciento80 Colombia


Juan David has dedicated his life to helping indigenous youth from the different communities of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta who dream of being able to access a higher level of education or ministerial training that will allow them to impact their communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is currently directing Giro Ciento80 Colombia, which is affiliated with our organization.


Juan David was born in Valledupar, Colombia, where he grew up in a Christian family. His parents have been dedicated to the Lord’s work all their lives, pastoring Ebenezer Central Church. Juan David is a youth leader in the same church. At the age of 17 he started his college life and graduated in 2020 with a degree in business administration from the Universidad Autónoma de Bucaramanga.

During his time in Bucaramanga God confirmed his calling. During his time in college he dedicated himself to working in God’s work, getting involved with the teenagers in his church. He has been involved in ministry in counseling, ministry support and preaching to teens and young adults.

Juan David is planning to marry Karem Suarez, a young lawyer who supports him in the vision of establishing Giro Ciento80 Colombia. She is a member of the Fe y Vida church in Valledupar where she is a worship leader.

Juan is the youngest of three children: Laura and Daniel, his older siblings.

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
