Born in Oaxaca Mexico, Gerry immigrated to the United States in 1971. His family lived in California most of his life and he is a fourth generation Adventist who loves serving the church especially kids and youth. Gerry graduated with a B.A. in Theology from Antillean Adventist University in Mayaguez, PR in 2010. He served as Youth Pastor at Hemet Valley SDA church in CA, UAA University Church, and West Palm Beach Spanish Church before his arrival to Sligo. He truly loves working with children and youth of all ages because he believes that kids are the future of the church and the youth are the “gift” of the church. He believes that a church will have an expiration date if it does not actively minister to these important groups. He and his wife, Eunice have two daughters, Brianah and Viahnca.
