Update from N.C. Starting as A Worship Leader

It may not be a big deal for many, the fact that this Sunday August 14, 2011 I start serving my brothers and sisters at The Carpenter’s Shop as their Worship Leader together with my lovely future wife Rayette. However, for me is very significant!


It may not be a big deal for many, the fact that this Sunday August 14, 2011 I start serving my brothers and sisters at The Carpenter’s Shop as their Worship Leader together with my lovely future wife Rayette as our Musical Director. However, for me is very significant! It was in that church five and half year ago that we held my late wife’s funeral. I later returned to Jacksonville to remarried and endup divorced. So much has happend since that funeral; so much has happend since the last day I saw Ileana. But now God has indeed open this door and I am excited to see what the Lord is about to do there. I am also very excited to continue to see my son Angelo involved side by side with me in a Worship Team. We started that journey at The Hispanic Church of God in Jacksonville and I have seen my son mature as a young man, as a musician and as a powerful anointed singer…So proud of him! I am also so honored to serve a group of such faithful, talented and anointed worship leaders at The Carpenter’s Shop; you guys are indeed an amazing group! There is so much to do here in North Carolina, so many people in need of ministry, so much that I want to do right away, but I am so glad that I am in the right place. God bless you all!

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot. In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona.
