My aims in seminary education are:

  • Exploring how church and worship in the United States can evolve to affirm and include third culture Hispanic and Latinx persons.

  • Obtaining sound Biblical knowledge that bridges the gap between Hispanic and Latinx communities with LGBTQIA+ inclusive and affirming theologies.

  • Practicing spiritual/daily disciplines that reclaim the Cross as both a way of life and an affirmation of salvation through universal reconciliation theologies. This includes eating with people from various cultures, oral and written prayer, expressive prayer such as dance, standing with oppressed persons, standing up to oppressive persons/systems, and always observing the Sabbath.

  • Learning how to teach others to become proponents of their own story, and subsequently teaching others to listen to one another’s stories.
