Our Pastoral Team

Jun Torres

LEAD PASTOR

After serving for six years as a bi-vocational pastor of an underground church in the middle-east, the Lord transplanted us to Canada 1997. I have personally experienced God’s mighty work in the desert that became the fertile ground to grow new believers who are now spread all over the world serving God in different capacity.

I have been married to my lovely wife Malou since 1989. God graced us with three wonderful and committed children who are serving in different capacities at Living Hope. We are now a proud grandparents of two beautiful grandchildren (Mirae Carissa & Noah).


Von Armamento

ASSOCIATE PASTOR

My name is Von Jovi Armamento (people refer to me as Von or VJ). I am happily married to my beautiful wife, a father to the cutest baby girl, and most of all, a servant of the True King. My passion is talking about the Word of God and building meaningful relationships with other people and families. On the side, I enjoy playing drums, watching movies, and eating all kinds of food - particularly ramen, salmon sashimi, and chips. Feel free to approach me anytime, I would love to connect with you!


Benjie Susi

RELATIONAL PASTOR

As part of the core group of families from Tri-Cities International (now The Well Church), it was a delight to see God's amazing work grow, at Living Hope. I've been privileged to be called as one of the Pastors here in 2021. I sincerely believe there’s no higher pursuit than seeking His kingdom first! Me and my wife Rosalie make our home here in New Westminster. We love to travel and explore (pre-pandemic). We are blessed with 2 wonderful children, and 2 ‘mestizas’ grand daughters! God is great, and is worthy to be praised!

Ezer Arriola

YOUTH PASTOR

Hi I'm Ezer. I love food, cooking and am a wannabe chef. I enjoy talking and thinking about philosophy and theology. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games, woodworking and hanging out with family. I can be very intense and passionate about certain things and can come across as intimidating, but I really enjoy making meaningful connections and just have fun as soon as I warm up (I can be a bit of a comedian, ask my youth). Let's have coffee some time, my treat.

Allan Yadao

SATELLITE CHURCH PASTOR

I am a child of God, husband to Evelyn for 34 years now, father to Abigail & Josh and a Grandfather (Lolo) to Becca(3 yrs old). Lived in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates for 15 years where I was equipped through the Filipino Christian Church, migrated to Canada and finally obeyed the Lord’s calling in 2009(after years of running) and same year moved to Victoria to begin my journey as a Church Plant servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am passionate about basketball (was a player, coach & referee) and about “connecting” with people and sharing with them about Jesus Christ, mankind’s only Hope.
