Ministry Journey


Jaime participates in the ministry of the Blessing Network in the city of Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic. He is currently planting a church in this city. He also supports the training and leadership of couples in the Centro Cristiano Bendición de Constanza Church (I-CCB-C). Additionally, he is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Ministry at Antioch School.


Jaime was born in the city of Constanza, in a non-Christian family. He is the second to last of six siblings. He lost his father at the age of 7, which forced his mother to work hard to support the family. The impact of the loss of his dad led him to ask some questions with no apparent answers. In his eagerness to find answers, he began to read the New Testament reliably. As time passed, he saw clearly his sinful condition and the terrible reality of dying in that condition. In the face of this, he was gripped by a fear of death and desperation to escape that situation. Finally, reading and meditating on Romans 5:8, he understood that the means to restore his relationship with God was Jesus Christ. That night, he surrendered to the Lord amidst weeping and pleading for forgiveness. Subsequently, he began to attend a church. This happened while he was finishing his high school studies in 2009.

Later, he met Pastor Felix Abreu when he was sent by the Centro Cristiano Bendición de Constanza Church (I-CCB-C) to the city of Santo Domingo. The Iglesia Centro Cristiano Bendición de Evaristo Morales (I-CCB-EM) invited him to study theology at a seminary in the city. After a year and a half, the church made him a new invitation to send him to look at the Central American Theological Seminary (SETECA) in Guatemala City in 2014. Upon his arrival, he received a visit from Joaquin Vargas, who also supported him to begin his studies, which he concluded in 2017. In this city, he met his current wife, Bani Sandoval. Four years later, they got married. They have a two-year-old daughter named Zoe, and they are expecting the arrival of a second daughter named Mia.
