Rod Frias was born in Mexico City where he studied Information Systems at Colegio Nacional de Educación Profesional Técnica. Although he loves technology, his real passion is publishing, education and leadership training. He has worked at many technology-oriented corporations as well as publishing houses including LifeWay Christian Resources where he coordinated and completed translation, editing and proofreading of Sunday School Curriculum, VBS Resources, and Bible Studies including The Love Dare for Parents book by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, filmmakers of Overcomer, War Room, Courageous and Facing the Giants, among others. He also served as Spanish Buyer for the LifeWay Christian Stores.
He is honored to be part of the wonderful GCA family, and truly believes God is calling him to use his experience and talents to equip students with the powerful benefits and joys that learning Spanish have. In order to prepare them to compete and succeed in an ever-changing world, expand their horizons and serve others through their leadership.
Rod met his bride Jessica at a Quinceañera in Northern California, and by God’s grace, have been married for over two decades. They have been blessed with three extraordinary kids: Aimee, David and Joshua.
One of Rod’s favorite verses is Psalm 62:1-2 “I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.”
