MISSIONARY PROFILE
ANGEL ALVAREZ FERNANDEZ
MINISTRY:
Minister
HOME CHURCH:
Alcorcon Madrid
ON FIELD SINCE:
2003
PROFILE:
I was brought up in the traditional Roman Catholic beliefs which my mother taught me and the atheistic views of my father. I grew up being confused about religion, being half Catholic and half agnostic. Though I was baptized as a Catholic, and I attended classes for my confirmation and mass in the following years, I did not know anything concerning the teachings of the Bible, and I did not believe in God.

When I was sixteen years old I met a young man the same age as myself, and we became very good friends. In the course of time, he invited me to go to church on the Lord’s Day. It turned out to be the church where the Rev. John Hanna was ministering. I had never heard the Gospel before, and everything sounded like Greek to me. But the Lord began to speak to my heart and in the early part of 1994 I was brought under conviction of sin by the power of the Holy Spirit while I was listening to the preaching of the Gospel. Under this conviction I came to Christ in repentance and confessed my sins in prayer, accepting Jesus Christ as my own and personal Saviour.

One year later, the Lord called me to His ministry through different passages of the Scriptures. After four years of study in Grace Bible College in Spain, I travelled to Northern Ireland to complete my theological studies in the Whitefield College of the Bible.

The Lord put a great burden in my heart for my own country and people, and I always knew, through the Holy Scriptures, that the Lord’s will for me was to go back to Spain and preach the gospel to my fellow-countrymen.

Today I am a minister in the church in Alcorcon, where Rev. John Hanna is ministering. After I finished my theological training, I went back to Spain as Rev. Hanna’s assistant for nine months, and then, in 2003, when I was ordained to the ministry, I received the call from the congregation to be a pastor in the church. Both the Rev. Hanna and I share the ministry of the congregation. Apart from the preaching and the pastoral care, I am also the youth fellowship leader.

We live in a small town just outside Toledo, called Barcience. We have started prayer meetings at home with some other families from our congregation who also live in the same town with a view to start a new work for the Lord in this area.

I also teach “Hebrew” and “Introduction to the Old Testament” in Grace Bible College. Last year I was voted in as the new president for our “Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches of Spain”. I am in charge of the preparation for our annual family camp, and I am also on the committee for the preparation of the youth and children’s camp at Easter and July, respectively.

Kelley and I are very thankful to the Lord for the privilege of serving Him in this way. Kelley has wholeheartedly taken on the role of minister’s wife, and she is now also fully involved in the work of our small church. Our congregation may be small, but its needs are just as great and numerous as anywhere else. We must be faithful to the Lord in the small things, if we are to expect the Lord to use us to do great exploits. (Daniel 11:32).
