Overview:

My name is Isaac Rosales. I grew up in Visalia and attended Golden West High School before moving to New Mexico my senior year. I then attended my first year of College at The University of New Mexico until I felt God calling me back to the valley where I transferred to Fresno Pacific University to run track and pursue full-time ministry. There I met my wife and took a few years off to begin a family. I graduated from Fresno Pacific in 2010 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Religious Studies with an emphasis in Theology. I have two boys. One is in junior high and the other is in 6th grade and part of an Autism program in Visalia.

I ran my own video business for 15 years before going to graduate school at Brandman University, a part of Chapman University. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership and I am currently working on my second Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am very excited to come teach at such a prestigious Biblically based school.

I believe that God calls us to do things and we must be willing and open to step out in faith and follow His call. My favorite scripture is Psalms 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

I know God has big plans and we must step through in faith and honor Him.
