BIO: Pastor Esteban Vargas was born, raised, and currently lives in the Victor Valley area of the High Desert (Victorville, Ca). He spent most of his childhood playing sports and playing music but throughout his early and late teens he found himself becoming quite the troublemaker. After graduating High School he began to ask himself “now what?” in which he found his answer as he was invited to a church service were he gave his life to Jesus Christ. He spent the next couple of years growing in the Lord, ministering throughout Southern California and becoming an active member and leader in his church.
At age 21 Esteban slowly walked away from the church and then from the Lord which led him back to the things that troubled him as a youth. He began to pursue a career in the music industry where we he performed at clubs and venues throughout California as a Hip Hop artist and even found local success with a promising future. The pursuit of the music industry made it easy for Esteban to get involved with a lifestyle that he was familiar with due to his upbringing and surroundings, a lifestyle of drug sales and drug abuse. Though his music career was becoming successful his personal life was being lost as he battled legal troubles and drug addictions. He found himself gaining the world but losing his soul in the process and it was several circumstances that caused him to realize that the Lord was trying to get his attention.
In July 2008 Esteban went back to his old church and encountered the Spirit of God in such a way that it has completely changed his life. During the service he was overwhelmed with emotion and in his brokenness he physically felt the arms and love of the Lord wrap around and hold him. During this encounter Esteban asked the Lord “how could You love someone like me?” in which the Lord responded “how can I not love you, you are My son” and at that moment Esteban was restored and revived and has never been the same. He immediately went home and flushed all his drugs and paraphernalia down the toilet and has been clean and sober ever since. His legal troubles were eventually and supernaturally worked out and he immediately became involved in his church overseeing the youth ministry and participating on the church worship team.
In July 2010 Esteban married his Pastor’s daughter (Ahelya) and they quickly stepped into answering the call of God on their lives, opening up the Victory House of Prayer and the HD Platform, preaching and ministering throughout the area. And in October 2014 they were sent out to plant and Pastor a new church, Redemption High Desert. With their passion for revival, prayer, and worship they are making an impact on their community and everyone they meet.
