About My Family

I'm of Hispanic and Navajo descent, and northwestern New Mexico is home. I'm a Sci-Fi and history nerd, and I love the Dallas Cowboys and chile rellenos. My desire is for the furthering of God’s kingdom through the equipping of God’s people. I'm passionate about expository preaching, theological instruction and personal discipleship.

About My Church Plant

Higher Ground Church exists to glorify God, edify His people and testify of His gospel. We're a new church plant on the border of Farmington, N.M., and the Navajo reservation.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray that God would be preparing the hearts of those we will reach in this ministry. Pray that God would provide another elder for Higher Ground.
