About My Family

I was born in Cuba to a Christian family. My father is a Baptist pastor. I made a personal decision to surrender my life to Jesus when I was 12 years old, and the next year I was baptized—just a week before my family migrated to the U.S. We took residence in Maryland, where my father served as a pastor at First Baptist Church of Laurel.

As a youth, I was very passionate about worship. I served in my father’s church while attending college. In January of 2000, I moved to Miami with my wife, Jenny, and began full-time ministry at a large Spanish Baptist Church in Hialeah, Fla.

Jenny has been God’s greatest gift to me. She is a perfect wife and ministry partner, who honors God at home serves His people at church. God has blessed us with four beautiful children: Siena (13), Aedin (11), Eva (5) and James (3).

About My Church Plant

In 2006, we moved to downtown Miami and transitioned out of Spanish ministry into English ministry. We continued to serve the Spanish-speaking world through worship music and Christian radio music Internationally.

On the English side of ministry, I have planted five different churches, two in Miami and three overseas (2009–2019). I am very passionate about the Word of God as it is proclaimed and lived out. I am committed to shepherding the body of Christ through the faithful teaching of Scripture in applicable ways.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God’s call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at “Send me.”


As you read this, please pray for my family and the ministry the Lord is raising at Harvest Church. We want to see our church grow by reaching the lost in our communities. Please join us in asking God to continue to raise faithful men and women so we can help plant many new churches throughout the world in the years to come, if the Lord allows.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant.
