About JubileeOur History




I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but

God has been making it grow.

1 Cor. 3:6


Even as our founders, David and Emily Romero themselves were teenagers,
God was already preparing the soil and planting in them the desire to serve
His people through community outreach, Christian education, and evangelism.
The bulbs were planted, but it would take years of patiently waiting before any
growth would appear above the surface. Behind the scenes,
however, various people were coming alongside the Romeros bringing life-giving water,
and roots were wriggling deeper and deeper into
the fertile soil to create a strong foundation. 
Living in California, David and Emily faced a car breakdown that led to unexpected help. A church member skilled in missionary legalities assisted them in establishing Jubilee as a non-profit.

Jubilee officially started in La Era, initially planning for middle school but serving 85 preschool and kindergarten students instead.


As Jubilee added 1st grade, it partnered with Cántico Nuevo church, using their space for classrooms and planning to expand one grade per year.


God blessed Jubilee with a property in La Era, with the community raising $85,000 for its purchase.As Jubilee added 1st grade, it partnered with Cántico Nuevo church, using their space for classrooms and planning to expand one grade per year.
