Restore Zion Yohanan Salamanca
Pastor Yohanan Salamanca was born in the Mexican city of Calpulalpan, Tlaxcala in 1974. He was raised in a family that had strong ties to their Jewish heritage and practiced their Jewish beliefs consistently. Sometime after his bar mitzvah in 1986, Yohanan began his ministry efforts in Cuernavaca, Morelos in Mexico. After ten years serving the Lord in his father Daniels congregation, Yohanan was sent to begin his own congregation in Puebla Mexico. He began with one family, but the Lord blessed his congregation and it quickly grew to 500 people, Sephardic Jews and non-Jews alike. His ministry, "Comunidad de Restauracion Familiar" or the Community of Family Restoration, focuses in teaching families the principles of YHWH found in the Holy Scripture from a Hebraic perspective so they can mature as believers and help others.
Yohanan is a fluent speaker of Spanish, English and Hebrew, which has aided his ministry greatly. He is also the Director of the Timothy Bible College, a college accredited by the International Commission for Accreditation. The mission of the Timothy Bible College is to prepare students called to the ministry to be the priests of their homes, witnesses to a lost and dying world, and to teach the Scripture from a Hebraic perspective.
