By the time he entered high school, Pedro had seen two failed marriages, gone to 13 different schools, and faced his share of challenges. However, instead of being defined by those circumstances, he saw them as opportunities for growth. Baseball became more than a game, it was his sole passion. By his senior year, Pedro had caught the attention of several professional baseball scouts. During the first game of his senior season, everything changed. With one swing of the bat, he hit a home run and tore his rotator in the same moment. His faith was shaken and his dream to play professionally, felt out of reach. Through many trying days, he allowed this to both prune and propel him into a new season of life.
At the age of twenty, Pedro became the drummer for international recording artist KJ-52 and went on to play with several other artists including Tedashii, Anthem Lights, Rhema Soul, and Group 1 Crew. And at the age of twenty-eight, he wrote his first book, The Middle Seat, about learning to see average moments as the miraculous waiting to happen. Through out this 8 year span, Pedro was being asked to speak in public schools, churches, and to professional athletes where he was given the opportunity to advocate for the gospel. The Love he discovered for communicating those truths has now grown into speaking to thousands of students, leaders, and churches over the last 14 years.
Pedro and his bride, Jessica, have one son, named Justice. They live together in Los Angeles, California and wholeheartedly believe in the missional purpose and unification of the church — and with this desire, they’re excited to advance the charity: water mission to see those affected by the water crisis, be given clean water!
