Rolando Morgado was ordained to the Gospel ministry on August 12, 2017, at the Miami, Fla., Spanish Church, where he serves as associate pastor.
He was born in Matanzas, Cuba. He and his sister, Oijany, had the joy of growing up in a ministerial family, and Morgado made the decision to be a servant of God at an early age. He witnessed about Jesus at preschool, and his teacher became interested in knowing about this Jesus. She then devoted her life to Jesus.
Morgado came to the United States in 2005 at the age of 16. Two years later, he decided to obey God’s dream for his life and to study theology at Southern Adventist University. He faced many challenges, doubts, and fears due, to a great extent, to his deficiencies in the English language, but he was pleased to see how God led him every day to a resounding and sure victory as he walked by faith in his Savior Jesus Christ.
Upon graduation in 2011, he was called to work in Tallahassee for the Florida Conference. In 2012, he became an associate pastor of the Hialeah Spanish Church. There Morgado met Nacira, and they were married in 2015. Their son, Alejandro Felipe, was born in 2016.
Morgado’s dream is to continue to serve his wonderful God, so all who hear the message of hope and encouragement may also decide to follow Jesus.
