Zeke is originally from El Paso, TX and has been married to Rosa for 28 years. They have three children and two grandchildren.

Before going into full-time ministry, Zeke held various managerial positions in companies including El Paso Electric, Flour Daniel Corporation, and Midlands Management Corporation. After graduating from the Art Institute of Houston in 2000, he moved to Oklahoma City where he founded his own video production company. However, his calling has always been the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. In 2003 he graduated from Capacitacion Ministerial – a Spanish preaching school in El Paso, TX and then in 2011, he graduated with honors (Magna Cum Laude) from Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, TX

Zeke has preached in several gospel meetings, evangelism campaigns and youth conferences in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, California, Mexico, and Central America.

Zeke is currently the bilingual minister at the Broad Street Church of Christ in Mineola, TX. He focuses his ministry in developing leaders, training them to preach, teach and evangelize. Being bilingual gives him the opportunity to carry out his ministry in English and Spanish.

One of his favorite verses is 1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

His mission is to continue working, growing and giving himself fully to the work of the Lord, standing firm in the promise that his labor in the Lord will not be in vain but will continue to be fruitful and blessed by God. He passionately motivates others to have the same mission.
