Jose Daniel Sanchez was born in Venezuela on May 30, 1994. In 2007, his family received an invitation to minister among the Hispanic community in Toronto, ON, which they accepted. He went to Crawford Adventist Academy (main campus) and, after graduation, attended Burman University, from which he obtained his degree in religious studies in 2016.
That same year, the Ontario Conference invited him to serve as the youth pastor of the College Park SDA Church in Oshawa. After two years of service, he went on to serve for one year as the assistant pastor of the Kendalwood Seventh-day Adventist Church. Currently, Jose is a full-time student at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, pursuing his MDiv with a special emphasis in chaplaincy.
Jose is happily married to a wonderful woman by the name of Laura Angelica Sanchez, whom he met while doing his pastoral field experience in Edmonton. Jose enjoys all types of physical activity, especially playing soccer and jumping rope. He also enjoys writing music, singing, and playing instruments. Lately, Jose also began a YouTube channel in Spanish called “Claro y Simple,” where he seeks to present the gospel through word and music in a “clear and simple” way.
