He came to know the Lord when he was very young, had a personal encounter with Christ alone, in a clear place outside of the city of Buenos Aires. There he experienced his salvation in an extraordinary way, desiring to express the love of Christ to all that were around. In a short time God called him to prepare himself for full-time service, but Claudio had other plans. He began studying engineering at University and aspired to be a good Christian, but not a pastor. However, at a retreat, the Holy Spirit spoke to him so clearly that he decided to enter the Seminary with the strong purpose to serve God.
