Arias, Julián and Serina

From: $25 – subscription plan available

Serina Arias, born and raised in Northern New Jersey, came to know the Lord at the age of seven. She left for her first mission trip when she was fourteen years old. Little did she know that God would plant a passion in her heart for sharing the Gospel throughout the world. After several short-term mission trips, the Lord led her to Moody Bible Institute to study Intercultural and Children’s Ministry. Catching SAM’s vision for creating dynamic churches, Serina joined SAM’s loving community serving in Colombia and Bolivia.

In October 2020, Julián and Serina married in Colombia. They are spending their first year of marriage serving their local community in Medellin. They are blessed with opportunities to encourage and support churches as well as share the gospel with their neighbors. In addition to building a strong foundation for their marriage and future missionary service, Julián is in seminary, earning his degree in Theological Studies, and Serina works remotely for the mission’s home office. They look with anticipation and humility to see how God will continue to guide them to future ministry opportunities in the next couple of years.
