Maria and Miguel Montenegro
Posted on Apr 20, 2012
Pastor Miguel Montenegro is our Hispanic Pastor. His wife Maria serves alongside him as a Pastoral Assistant.
Maria Montenegro works with Fellowship en Español as Hispanic Ministry Director. She has a strong passion for all people to know Jesus and come to a deep relationship with God. Hispanic families are in great need of having intimacy with Jesus so that their lives can be transformed by Him, and they are right there to lead them to have a real experience with God and to disciple and teach them the Word of God. She works in support of Fellowship en Español in all administrative tasks and also with the pastoral care of women, families, and couples.
Maria became a Christian at the age of nine and since that time she has been serving God with love and joy in different areas of ministry. She is originally from Guatemala and is married to Miguel, who is a wonderful husband and the Hispanic Pastor for Fellowship en Español. We have a beautiful and sweet daughter, Maria, and a son who is now at home with the Lord. It was through him that my husband came to be in the Ministry.
She graduated in Theology and Pastoral Counseling and loves to see people being transformed by God. She also has Social Communication and Marketing degrees. She was a manager for multimedia TV, Newspaper, and Radio broadcasting for more than twelve years.
For many years she has been involved in training leaders for Christ and in church planting, she worked as a presenter for church planters at the Georgia Baptist Convention and North American Mission Board. She has also been a speaker in national and international conferences in areas related to leadership training, women and family. She loves outreach and developing community projects for the underserved people, thereby expressing God's Heart for everybody in need.
Maria's passion is Jesus and His kingdom and she is so grateful to God for the great blessing of serving Him as part of the Fellowship family.
