Delegates selected Wilfredo “Choco” De Jesús, one of half
a dozen candidates vying for the Language Area-East

In short remarks to the crowd, De Jesús, who has been a part of
the Assemblies of God for 30 years, paid tribute to his
mentor, the late Jesse Miranda Jr.
Dr. Melissa Alfaro and Dr. Sam Huddleston incumbent
Executive Presbyters also continue to serve the fellowship
and represent gender and ethnic diversity.
