Dr. Santos graduated with high honors for his Master of Divinity degree in 2004. He is a Birkman certified trainer with Birkman, USA, as well as a master teacher with WorldTeach Philippines.

As a counselor, pastor, and teacher, Dr. Santos seeks to heighten Christian leadership by meeting God in areas of personal brokenness to firm up one’s soul through practicing spiritual discipline and aiming for authentic leadership.
