Vladimir & Sayonara Aquino

Ministry Journey


Vladimir is a sinner saved and converted by the grace of the Lord to be a servant-leader with experience in pastoral ministry. He has also served as a Bible and Theology teacher at the Christian Biblical Alliance.

Together with his wife Sayonara, they are established at El Calvario Christian Biblical Church in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. Their vision is to guide men and women of all ethnicities to offer “to the Lamb that was slain the reward worthy of his sacrif ice”.

Vladimir and Sayonara are part of the Executive Team of the Pioneers RD Missionary Agency, the local representation of Pioneers, where they serve as Field Coordinator (Vladimir) and Prayer Coordinator (Sayonara). Vladimir is also the Lead Facilitator for Simply Mobilizing courses and chairs the Simply Mobilizing New Nation Coordinating Team in Panama.


Vladimir graduated f rom the Christian Biblical Seminary of the Caribbean. For 12 years, he served as an Elder and Youth Pastor at the First Christian Biblical Church in San Pedro de Macorís and as a professor at the Theological Training School (ECT) of that church. He also served as General Secretary of the Christian Biblical Alliance (ABC) for six years, directly responsible for the organization and execution of the youth congresses.

His wife, Sayonara, collaborated with him closely in the leadership of the youth ministry, counseling, sharing, and teaching with the young ladies. He studied at the School of Theological Training and founded the Children’s Ministry. Both were then commissioned, in 2011, to raise a local church that today exists as CBC Las Caobas in San Pedro de Macorís.

In 2018, he was called by the Lord to participate in the Kairos Course, and his worldview changed utterly. From the understanding that his service in his local church was excellent and more than enough, he is convinced by the Lord that such service represented a little effort to complete the mission of the Lord to reach all ethnic groups and that men and women of all of them worshipped Him. Hence, it was necessary to do much more

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
