Chairman of the Board
Voltaire is a first-generation Filipino-American, born in Ilocos Norte (a province in the northern region of the Philippines) and reared in the San Francisco Bay Area since the age of nine months. He is the oldest of three children and grew up in a Christian home influenced by the sacrifice of a western missionary who came to the Philippines in the 1950’s. He came to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior at the age of eight.
Voltaire is a graduate of Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo, CA) having received a B.S. in Electronic Engineering and an M.S./M.B.A. in Engineering Management, and had extensive experience in the telecommunications industry (having been involved with introducing DSL as well as new Optical Networking technologies). He moved to the Dallas Metroplex in 1997 to continue his career in telecommunications and has been involved in various ministries with local churches and organizations. In 2001, Voltaire left a lucrative career in telecommunications after submitting himself to the Lord’s calling, and he continues to use his skills in pastoring, teaching, networking, informative presentations, and strategic ministry development.
In 2010, he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a CGS in Cross-Cultural Ministries. Voltaire also serves as the Vice-Chairman of Ethnic America Network. He serves with East-West Ministries and is involved in a local Chinese Church.
Voltaire married Cristina in 2002, and they have been blessed with three daughters.
