Tell us about yourself
I spent most of my childhood in Jersey City. As a young boy, I loved being outside playing with my neighborhood friends. I am very close to my family. My father and mother are pastors in the Spanish Church of the Nazarene, so I began a relationship with Jesus at an early age, and I grew up praying and learning the Word of God. I enjoy people, whether that’s family, friends or new acquaintances.
Tell us the story of how God brought you to EC
I came to Eastern Christian in high school. After graduation, I went to college briefly but did not finish my schooling. However, I was blessed to work at another school for 24 years, where I Iearned from many gifted teachers about how to work with children. After that, the Lord opened the doors for me to come to work at Eastern Christian.
