WE'VE GOT SOME EXCITING THINGS PLANNED. STAY TUNED!
Armando and his family have been part of North Phoenix for years, but recently God called them
to take a bigger step for His Kingdom. Pastor Armando will be leading at our South Campus.
He has many years of church planting experience and loves
the city of Phoenix.
Armando grew up in church and
was saved at 13 years old, but it was when he was 19 on a mission
trip serving migrant families in South Carolina that he surrendered to God’s call on his life to full time ministry. At the time he had no idea where God would lead, but he was willing to GO. In 2008, Armando planted The Puente Church in South Phoenix, a church for 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanics. He pastored there for seven years while also helping to lead the Rio Vista Center. He became a Church Planting Catalyst for the North American Mission Board in 2015 where he was able to work with church planters in Arizona and help churches as they multiplied. That soon led to him being called to a larger role on the training team of NAMB - a role he continues in today as the Regional Equipper for the western United States. Armando is passionate about identifying and developing indigenous leaders who will be the next generation of church planters and ministry leaders.
