THIAGO & ISABELA CRUZ
WEST PALM BEACH CAMPUS PASTORS
Coming from a family of Ministers, Thiago used to love to compete at sports, basketball specially, and to play guitar with his friends as a teenager. Son of a brilliant Brazilian Navy superior Officer with a renowned Psychologist, both also pastors, he learned from birth to always give his best to his studies, hard work and to God's Kingdom.
Well organized and always up to learning new things, Thiago was always known as very competent, friendly and versatile, getting a point where he hosted an audience-leader TV show on a national broadcast company while attending two different majors: Law School and International Relations. In 2009 Thiago felt God's calling to join his parents on starting a dream the Lord has put in their hearts: the Frontier Ministries. Altogether with his sister Pamela, Thiago used the knowledge acquired on his years working with TV to develop all the visual concepts of the church, being responsible for that to this day.
On September 2013, Thiago was ordained to the Pastoral Ministry after serving as a deacon since the beginning of the church; and as a youth and worship leader for more than 10 years. He and Isabela got married on December that same year. The couple then moved to relaunch His Grandparent's church in Florida, fulfilling a promise God gave his parents and grandparents even before he was born.
Pastor Thiago Cruz invites you to be part of our family here at Frontier Ministries WPB, where he will always be waiting for you with his famous hugs and messages delivered directly from God's heart.
Since always Isabela is known for her captivating smile. First daughter of Carlos and Andrea, a businessman with a physician doctor, as a kid Isabela loved to go to the family’s ranch, where would spend her holidays playing with the animals and riding horses, Truly enjoying the details of life.
While on her teen ages, Isabela saw God’s transformation in her family’s life, as in the middle of her parents' marriage crisis, her mother - Andrea - had an encounter with Jesus and started taking Isabela and her siblings to church, always praying for her father to come to also know Jesus. It took them six years of prayers and faith in God until they could see their family restored, flooding with God’s love in their home.
Always talented and inclined to arts, texts and crafts, Isabela grown up to be a graduated ballerina, former competition swimmer and an advertising student in one of Brazil’s most prestigious universities, which led her to achieve the Design and Advertising Director position on her family’s business. At 2011 Isabela followed her parents as they’ve decided to become part of the Frontier Ministries’ family in Rio, where she and Thiago met, dated, and got married on December 2013 - and from where God’s calling brought Isabela and Thiago to Florida.
Always encouraging others and faithful to God, Isabela invites you to be part of our Frontier West Palm Beach family, where she will lead us in praise & worship, and be always available to counsel, pray, and share her captivating smile.
