About My Family

I am the father of two sons, Jose and Earle. I also have a grandson, Gabriel Michael James. He is a great joy and blessing in my life, and I am privileged to be a very active part in his life.

I was ordained by my local church. In March 2001, I started ministering to students in public middle schools through Youth for Christ and First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach (now known as Family Church).

About My Ministry

I currently serve as a Civil Air Patrol chaplain. I have the privilege of guiding cadets and their families. I also serve as the chaplain at the Community Health Center of West Palm Beach, Fla. The health center exists to share the love of God by providing non-emergency medical and eye care to those who do not have access to health care services because they lack health insurance. The center assists them in establishing a continuum of care through conventional health care systems to promote a healthy body, mind and spirit.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a "frontline" ministry that is vital to the extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless, and advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.


For boldness to share the gospel as I interact with people. For receptive hearts among the people in my community. For people to come to saving faith in Jesus Christ. For the Lord of the Harvest to send more workers into the field to join missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Chaplains serve as an extension of the local church in places that other church members and staff sometimes cannot go. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Support and pray for chaplains and their families.
Become personally invested in the ministry of chaplains. Learn about their ministry context, so you can provide relevant help and resources.
