Pedro Garcia is the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Kendall in South Florida. Born in Miami, Florida, Pedro gave his life to the Lord at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale in 1996 at the age of 21. After graduating from Calvary Chapel Bible College in 1999, he became assistant project manager of a new housing development that was under construction. It was there that the Lord stirred his heart to start what is now Calvary Chapel Kendall. CCk has become one of the fastest-growing churches in the area, meeting in two campuses in Miami. Pedro’s enthusiastic love for the Lord and the lost is contagious. He teaches verse-by-verse through the Word of God, resulting in lives that are impacted, built up, and equipped to do the work of ministry. His humorous, passionate, and contemporary style connects with a wide audience without compromising the truth of the scriptures.
Pedro can be heard on Life Radio, the daily radio ministry of Calvary Chapel Kendall on stations nationwide. He currently serves on several Boards of Directors including Samaritan’s Purse with Franklin Graham. He is also the founder of LiFE FM 90.9, which is a Christian radio station serving the city of Miami and the Florida Keys.
Pedro is married to his childhood sweetheart, Lourdes; together, they have three daughters and a son. In his spare time, Pedro enjoys riding his Harley, watching NASCAR, and is an avid fan of Major League Baseball.
