Seminarian Eric serves two congregations and a remote group in the Caribbean as a Student-Pastor. Currently, he receives his ministerial training by visiting LATTE Professors while continuing to serve his congregation members.
Why did you start training for the ministry?
The motive for me to begin training for the ministry is the desire to win souls for Jesus Christ.
In these moments, I attend to two congregations directly and to one group of brothers that are in another city be means of letters ("snail mail") and e-mail.
How are you using your seminary training now?
The classes have been key in the effectiveness of my ministry since they have given me the possibility of knowing how to distinguish between the law and the gospel in the Word of God, bringing sound doctrine to my brothers in the faith; also the ability to carry out a more effective evangelism program.
What are your goals or plans for the future?
The plans or goals for the future is to continue to win souls for the kingdom of God, as well as to be able to raise up congregations in other cities of my country for the glory of the Lord, for which it is of vital importance the Bible knowledge which our professor imparts with such excellence.
My favorite Bible passage is:
"For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” - Romans 1:17.
