Angelica Barahona

Strategist | Co-Planter

Angelica was born and raised in Venezuela. She is married to Jeremy and is the mother of Junia! When she was 15 years old, she and her family came to faith in Christ during a visit to Orlando, FL at a Latino church. She was then discipled and served at Centro Evangelistico Peniel (CEP) in Valencia, Venezuela. She holds a B.A. in International Relations from La Universidad Central de Venezuela and did community development for 5 years. In 2015, she and her family moved to the United States due to the harsh realities in her home country. This led her to get a dual M.A. in Leadership/Intercultural Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and was on staff at Oak Brook Community Church. Before planting The Light WPB, she was the Asylum Program Manager for World Relief Chicago.
