What is your ministry?

I currently serve as the General Secretary for the Evangelical Alliance in Spain.

When did you trust Christ?

I made the decision to follow Jesus when I was 6 or7 year-old. I have grown in that grace ever since.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

My mother is a godly Christian, while my father has had a doubtful testimony. Her godly example 24/7 was crucial to my spiritual formation. I learned to read when I was 3, and started to read the New Testament when I was 7. I haven’t stopped reading the Bible daily for over 30 years. As a child I loved to talk about the "big questions" with adults. Jesus and his teachings were so different from man-made thoughts. I had teachers of different beliefs who loved to talk about different faiths. My church has always emphasized faithfulness to God's Word. Growing up in an environment of Roman-Catholicism and atheism makes you get prepared to give a reason for your faith. I feel really thankful for every blessing God has given me.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

Through the Forum I hope to learn from faithful teachers, broaden my mind, meet new people and ministries, gain insight and vision, share concerns, acquire tools for spreading the Gospel, help our society, and feed the church.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I have been a lay preacher in my church since I was 20. I have participated in evangelistic campaigns and open-air evangelism for over 15 years. I have served in the youth group, as an interpreter for Bible seminaries, as a Spanish teacher for missionaries and foreign brothers, as a speaker at local and national conferences, and as a contributor in Christian magazines, and radio and TV programs.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I am a faithful Christian who is ready to serve. Spain needs faithful committed Christians, preaching the Gospel from and to the Church. God-willing, with a lot of prayer, unashamed preaching, and faithful integrity, we can see a revival in this dry land. I have always felt a calling, and I tried to resist. I studied to become a scientist, but with a deep concern for theology. I think God can use my life for His glory.
