Justin Burkholder

My Story

Justin grew up in Mexico City as a missionary kid. Those experiences obviously began to share his understanding of missions. He made a commitment to Christ when he was 4 years old and has been following him ever since.

In 2007 Justin graduated from Moody Bible Institute and took a position as a youth pastor in the Chicago Suburbs. He married his wife, Jenny, in the spring of 2008. Jenny finished up her teaching degree and began to teach spanish in the Chicago suburbs as well. God continued to create within them a holy discomfort that would eventually lead them to committing to full-time missions. Their call became clear when they visited the Guatemala City.


Church Planting


My wife is Jenny. We have been happily married since May of 2008.

Ministry Focus:

My wife, Jenny, and I are planting churches in the Guatemala City. With a team of Guatemalans we have planted Iglesia Reforma. Guatemala is a place littered with aberrations of the gospel. The proclamation of the true gospel of Jesus Christ, through the local body of Christ is more urgent than ever.
