Our Story

How we began...

In 2014, our journey began amidst the aftermath of supertyphoon Haiyan. A small team from King's Harbor Church in Torrance, California embarked on a relief mission trip. As we extended our helping hand, the Lord unveiled a path of purpose for us in the Philippines. It was an opportunity for us to reciprocate the love we had received.

With over 30 years of collective experience as business owners, they have consistently felt a calling to share their blessings with those in need. Through their business endeavors, they have made significant contributions to various local charities and churches. Recognizing their role as faithful stewards of God's grace, they were led to establish Impact 3:16 in 2016. This organization stands as a product of the amazing grace bestowed upon them, serving as a platform to channel their giving ministry and make a lasting impact in the lives of others. Notably, the active participation of their sons, EJ and Seth, in mission trips adds a significant generational aspect to their shared commitment.
