In Pepe’s own words: 
Early on, God gave me a burden for the unchurched teen. It is only through God’s miraculous power that I’ve been able to remain in youth ministry these many years. Colossians 1:28-29 sums up the desire God has given me,” ​28 ​So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect[​a​] in their relationship to Christ. ​29 ​That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.”
