Many congratulations and blessings to alumna Caridad (Mini) Martinez (M.Div., 2011) who called to share that she has been called as Senior Pastor to Iglesia del Pueblo-Hope Center in Hammond, Indiana. She begins her ministry there on September 30th and will be formally installed in October. She is humbled and thrilled at starting this new position.
The former head of staff, Pastor Juan Rodriguez, served on the MIN404-405 teaching team (the paired course with field studies education) and received his Doctor of Ministry from McCormick in 2008. Additionally, alumnus Rev. Jose Morales (M.Div., 2005) served as associate pastor with Juan. Jose is now the Transitional Minister of the Central Rocky Mountain Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Denver, Colorado.
