Jose Zayas

Jose Zayas was first awakened to his mission to share the Good News as a teenager living in New York City.

“In high school, I simply wanted my friends to encounter Jesus in a real way,” says Jose. “Little did I know that God would open doors to allow me to share with millions of people around the globe in the decades that followed.”

Today, Jose is active in global mission—speaking at festivals, conferences, and outreaches across the United States, Europe and Africa through Jose Zayas Evangelism International.

Jose is also committed to local mission—serving as lead pastor of 26 West Church in Portland, Oregon, where he is passionately helping followers of Jesus live on mission to their city.

Jose is the author of AIRBORNE: Getting Your Faith Off the Ground and Good News Today …and Tomorrow. You can hear his teachings online at here.  Jose lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Carmen, and two children.


“I’m so glad to be able to say a brief word about my good friend and partner evangelist Jose Zayas. I first met Jose when he was a young man. He is a fantastic trainer and gifted evangelist. There’s no question that he's on fire for God! He has a zeal and passion for the Lord that's inspiring. Jose's life mission is proclaiming the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone - especially young people. Take every chance you get to hear him speak!”
