"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" 1 Peter 3:15 (KJV)
Thank You For Allowing Me to Minister in Your Church
May the Lord give you an Upper Room experience all the days of your life. May you never leave the Carpenter’s Shop so that the Lord may continue to do a deep work in you. May the Lord fill you with Abundant Hope so that you never be depressed; may you indeed be blessed with New Hope every single morning. May you be successful in your Community Outreach. May you experience a revival greater than Welch. May the Lord show you the promise land of your destiny from Mount Nebo. May you be able to enter and conquer everything that the Lord has for you. May you always live with the excitement of a New Vision, may you always find yourself in Higher Grounds and may you always find your way in the midst of many Crossroads. This is my prayer…in Jesus name…Amen!
Thank you to all the pastors I had the honor to develop a relationship with: Pastor Sandy, Pastor Jon, Pastor García, Pastor David Metz, Bishop Griffin, Pastor Griffin, Pastor Wallace, Pastor Erick, Pastor James Brown, Pastor Faircloth Jr., Pastor Ray Faircloth Senior and others.
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.
