I was born in the Republic of Panama and came to the United States to study at Fordham University where I graduated with a B.S. in Accounting. In my search for God, I studied Theology and Philosophy at Fordham also. After graduation, I married my wife Ana whose powerful love for Christ led me to believing faith in Jesus Christ. The old Theology and Philosophy were changed by the power of the Gospel!
I worked at New York University for 32 years until my retirement as a Controller. During those years at NYU, the Lord brought my family to Calvary Chapel where I was trained and became an elder ministering in a number of areas, which included teaching, preaching and Biblical Marriage Counseling. I started a ministry in Calvary Chapel to the Spanish-speaking community that led me to pioneer a Spanish Church to which I was ordained to Pastor. We have been in ministry for over 40 years, 25 of which was to the Spanish Community until my retirement in 2016. My wife Ana and I are presently leading a Small Group and serving with the Welcome Team at Stone Hill Church. We have two daughters who are serving in their own congregations and seven grandchildren.
