Miguel Verazas was ordained at the Pleasant Hill church on Sabbath, August 13.
Verazas said, “I am humbled by the grace and mercy that God has shown me in my spiritual journey. I am also extremely grateful for those who have mentored me along the way.”
Verazas has served the northern territory as a youth pastor since 2014, beginning at the Napa Community church, and since 2016 at Pleasant Hill. During his service at Pleasant Hill, he also earned a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Andrews University.
Miguel and wife Ashley have welcomed two beautiful children to their family: Annalise and Noah.
When asked, Verazas reflected, “My favorite part of ministry is giving Bible studies and preparing children of God to be baptized.”
