For the last 15 years, I have served in Virginia and in Latin-American countries from different leadership roles including missional church planting and development, evangelism, cross-cultural ministry, cross-cultural community outreach, preaching and providing pastoral care.  After receiving a call to ministry, I began to pursue formal Theological studies at Tennessee Temple University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies. I then continued with Seminary studies at Piedmont International-Temple Seminary, where I obtained a Masters degree in Art in Ministry. 

“I find great joy in building Christ-centered relationships, and fulfillment in helping others grow their relationship with Christ and within the faith community.  Also, I have been privileged to cross-train in pastoral ministry, discipleship, church planting, evangelism and missions within an international-multicultural setting. My passion to spreading the gospel, reach the un-reached and the underprivileged emerges from the forgiveness, compassion and love Christ has given me. Connecting people to God’s kingdom is the greatest job one could ever hope for.”
