Bishop Felipe Lugo is the General Treasurer of the Apostolic Assembly.
Born in a Catholic home on September 13, 1950 in Mexico City his parents, seeking the betterment of his life, sent him with family members in Rancho Cucamonga, California when he was thirteen. At the age of twenty-six he read the Bible for the first time, it opened to Galatians 5:19-21 and this passage had an impact on his life. Without hesitation he gave his life to the Lord a few days later and was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ on September 19, 1976.
Soon after God called him to ministry. He was set apart and ordained in the early eighties and in 1987 he was appointed Pastor of the Second Church of San Bernardino, California. Though receiving only five members, he deftly led his church to pay off it’s building in the first two years of his pastorate and he has led it toward further growth. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Administration Accounting Concentration from California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) in 1993.
After many years of working first as Auxiliary Elder and then eight years as District Treasurer, he was elected in 2003 as Bishop Supervisor of the Interior District of California. He served for eight years in this capacity, establishing five new churches, and wisely integrating into his district the Nevada and Southeast California districts. The 2014 General Convention elected him General Treasurer.
He obtained in 2012 a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
He and his wife Alma live in San Bernardino, California, they have two children Eliezer and Veronica (married to Albert), and seven grandchildren: Yasmin, Albert, Jordan, Kristine, Jacob, Isabella, Lilah.
