About Us

Sarlito, also known as Pastor Lito, trains pastors and church leaders in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. He travels to teach and train and has expanded his work into more of the unreached regions of Asia and has established a good mentoring situation among Pastors and Elders of churches in Hong Kong, Singapore, UAE, and Malaysia, where he conducts training and equipping among the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) churches all year round. He is joined by adjunct teachers and trainers who voluntarily work with JARON Ministries International, Philippines.

JMI is in partnership with other organizations with the same philosophy of ministry. Pastor Lito
continues local training throughout the Philippines in partnership with Walk Thru the Bible and Asian Access as one of their volunteer teachers/trainers. He is also involved in church planting with Jireh-Jethro Foundation which reaches the urban poor in Metro Manila.

In 2021, Pastor Lito finished his Doctoral Studies (Doctor of Ministry) at the International Graduate School of Leadership in Quezon City, Philippines.

The JMI-Philippine team’s ambitious goals include expanding partnerships with other organizations, establishing more Prayer Partners, gathering more sponsors, recruiting more teachers, maintaining these four countries with their partnership, and forming a short-term mission team that can be exposed to missions throughout Asia.

Pastor Lito attends Southern Light Community Church in Paranaque as one of the Elders together with his wife Tess and their children Carlo, Johanna, and James.
