Ministry Biography

I was born on March 27th, 1978 and grew up attending the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. I was baptized at age 11 after falling in love with Jesus. During my years as a student and Career Literature Evangelist, the Lord opened the door for me to study Theology. I studied it with two intentions: to grow spiritually and learn more about God’s word, and to equip myself so that I could lead, mentor, and disciple others in order that they may experience a life-changing encounter with Jesus and be soul winners for His kingdom.

These two initial reasons why I studied Theology, are still my motive, passion, and vision for ministry. 

Language Abilities

English, Spanish, French, Italian,

and Portuguese.

Awards and Special Honors

2) Home Health Education Service/Canada Youth Challenge- Awarded for excellent Leadership contribution to Literature Evangelism Program.

Interests and Hobbies

I love to sing, read, travel, exercise, play racquet sports, soccer, spend time with my family camping, and work on cars.

Family Information

Married to Nancy Faucher Henriquez

She is a Head Teacher with a

BA in Primary Education and Denominational Teaching Certification. She has 3 years experience in multi-grade bilingual teaching and speaks (English, French, and Spanish)

Leadership Style

 My motto and guideline for mentoring youth is best summarized in the acronym LEAD that for me takes the meaning of:

Lead prayerfully ( praying for them and with them )

Evangelize powerfully ( helping them discover the joy of service by sharing Jesus with others )


Disciple intentionally ( assisting them in discovering their spiritual gifts and using those gifts to make a difference    in their home, school, church, and community).
