Pastors Israel and Erin are passionate about serving the Lord by loving people. Israel “preached” his first sermon in his native Dominican Republic when he was six years old (with the help of his older sister) and has been involved in ministry ever since. He moved with his family to New York when he was eleven, which is where his heart for multicultural, diverse ministry really began as he adapted to a new home and language. His unique, energetic, urban style mixed with his knowledge of God’s Word and heart for people propel him to reach out to others not just at church but in everyday life. Erin has likewise been involved in ministry from a young age and has a heart for all people. She often jokes that instead of bringing home lost animals as a child she brought home lost people. Both Israel and Erin have served in various ministries over the years; from kids, youth, young adults, worship leaders to lead pastors, God has equipped them to serve effectively at every stage in multicultural and diverse environments.
In their free time Israel and Erin enjoy spending time together as a family with their three children. They love watching and playing sports (Pastor Israel is a big sports fan), playing family games, watching movies, and all kinds of creative arts, from music to painting to baking.
Their passion for the Lord and people to know God is woven into their call to serve as Lead Pastors of The ReMix Christian Church (RCC). Pastor Israel holds a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from The Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, TN and a Bachelor of Science in Electronics from DeVry University. Pastor Erin holds a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL and a Bachelor of Arts with a Minor In Biblical Studies from Lee University in Cleveland, TN.
We are very dedicated to the work of the Lord for His people! We are excited to be servant leaders of The ReMix congregation and hope that you will join us in giving, growing and receiving the gifts God has for us together.
