Pastor Zuñiga was born in Rio Bravo Tamaulipas, Mexico. At 16 years old, he emigrated to the State of Texas where at the age of 19 received the Lord as his Personal Saviour. Being 21 years old, he was called to preach, leaving his secular dreams of becoming an attorney at law and by giving his life to the Lord. At such a young age, he became an assistant pastor to then Pastor, Roberto Ramirez with whom he served for 16 years.
On November 16, 1991, he married Antonia Treviño, a young lady who was won to the Lord through the youth ministry; he been the youth pastor. Pastor Jesse and Mrs. Zuñiga have been married for 26 years and have three beautiful daughters, Sarah, Anna, and Jessica.
Pastor Jesse accepted the calling to become the Spanish pastor of a small congregation in Murfreesboro, TN where he’s now been pastoring for almost 20 years. Under his leadership, the Spanish Church, Iglesia Bautista Franklin Road, has seen many people come to the Lord Jesus for Salvation and have seen the Hand of God work in so many miraculous ways. During his many years as a pastor, the church has grown spiritually and numerically. The church has a heart for Souls, Missions and for those who are of a broken heart. His burden for the broken-hearted was confirmed when God opened the door to start the CIGA ministry in Mexico, where not only National pastors are encouraged but many souls have come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior.
