Maria and Miguel Montenegro
Posted on Apr 20, 2012
Miguel Montenegro is our Hispanic Pastor. His wife Maria serves alongside him as a Pastoral Assistant.
I work with Fellowship en Español as Hispanic Ministry Director. I have 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 we are right here to lead them to having a real experience with God and to disciple and teach them the Word of God. Actually I work in support of Fellowship en Español in all administrative tasks and also with the pastoral care of women, families and couples.
I became a Christian at the age of 9, and since that time I have been serving God with love and joy in different areas of ministry. I am originally from Guatemala. I am 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.
I am graduating in Theology and Pastoral Counseling, I love to see people being transformed by God. I also have Social Communication and Marketing degrees. I was a manager for multimedia TV, Newspaper and Radio broadcasting for more than 12 years.
For many years I have been involved training leaders for Christ and in church planting, I worked for the last 4 years as presenter for church planters at the Georgia Baptist Convention and North American Mission Board. I have also been a speaker in national and international conferences in areas related to leadership training, women and family. I love outreach and developing community projects for the underserved people, thereby expressing God's Heart for everybody in need.
My passion is Jesus and His kingdom and I am so grateful to God for the great blessing of serving Him as part of the Fellowship family.
