I was born and raised in “Cigar City” Tampa, FL. I was raised in a typical Cuban home. We had big birthday parties and ate rice and beans with every meal. Jesus Christ saved me at 17 when I was on a mission trip to the Bahamas (kind of ironic right). I had a scholarship to play college football at a university in South Carolina. Early my Freshman season I tore my ACL & MCL. Soon after my injury I felt the Lord calling me back to Tampa and pursue a degree in ministry. I went to Trinity College of Florida where I graduated with a degree in Pastoral Ministries with an emphasis on Youth Ministry.
Before starting at Trinity I met the woman who is now my wife. After several years of serving in the Tampa Bay area, my wife and I packed our bags and moved to Conway, Arkansas. I am now the Student Ministries Pastor of the best Youth Group in the world at Family Life Bible Church. I occasionally blog at YouthMin.org and make websites for people.
I am married to Corinne, have zero kids, and a growing record collection.
