Meet Your Hosts

Saso Mendez

Podcast Host

I was born again at a young age but did not always follow God as I should. God has worked in my life through the years and I desire to follow Him. I married my junior high sweetheart Rebekah and we have three children. I love good food, fellowship and am avid sports fan.

Ben Arellano

Podcast Host

I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 2006. I'm still growing as a Christian and I am so thankful for God's love, grace and mercy. I married my best friend Diane many years ago and we have 3 sons and a dog. I love old cars, street tacos and fellowshipping with the bretheren.

About the Podcast

The Abundant Life Podcast had been in the works since 2019. God had placed a burden on Saso and Ben to produce content to encourage and help Christians grow in their faith.

Through divine intervention, the Lord brought Saso and Ben together as friends to collaborate on the Abundant Life Podcast.

According to John 10:10, Jesus came to give us life, abundant life. The heart of the podcast is to take biblical principals that Jesus, our Shepherd, has given to us so that we may have an abundant life.
