Gabe Manjarrez is the Senior Pastor of The Reborn Church of Phoenix. He is a Phoenix Native and the father of four sons. In the earlier years of his life, he was heavily involved in the secular rap industry. In 1999, God saved him and called him to preach the gospel to the lost through Christian rap music. Since 1999, Gabe has been committed to evangelism in any area that God has given him a platform to do so. In 2004, Gabe coauthored a hip hop musical called The One, in which he also acted as the main character. The One was featured at the Arizona State Fair and The Herberger Theater in Downtown Phoenix. In 2007, Gabe began to feel a call to preach and lead others, as a result he completed a ministry training program called Real Men's Ministry. Throughout Gabe's life, God was pursing, equipping, and calling him to be a pastor. In 2012, Gabe resigned from his job of 18 years in order to answer that call. In 2013, Gabe was ordained as a pastor and founded The Reborn Church of Phoenix. Since one of Pastor Gabe's youngest sons has autism, he has compassion on people who are developmentally disabled. One of the visions that Pastor Gabe has for the church is to minister and serve families with developmental disabilities. Pastor Gabe is a committed father and shepherd. He is a pastor that is committed to discipleship, serving others, and preaching the Gospel.
