Pastor Pepe was called at a very young age to preach the Word of God. God miraculously healed him of terminal cancer at the age of nine; he now uses that experience to bless others. Lives have been healed, refined and restored through his testimony and ministry. Having been raised in a Christian home, he brings grace and wisdom from his amazing mentor, his father, who is also a minister.
His service started as a Sunday school teacher, sound engineer, and youth pastor. He heard his calling and has been preaching since 1999. He is also a Pediatric Nurse for over 15 years. God has gifted him with the ability to apply biblical principles to the lives of those in the Rio Grande Valley in a way that is relevant and easily understood by people of all ages and from all walks of life.
Pastor Pepe was born in Brownsville, TX in 1974 and resides in Harlingen, TX with his lovely wife of 16 years, Rubina G. Cervantes. Rubina was born in Salineno, TX in 1972, and accepted Christ in her early twenties. She uses her life experiences to compassionately help those in need. Together they cherish their handsome 15-year-old son, Jeriel, known as the “Miracle”. The Lord has brought the two together to serve in the Rio Grande Valley and today they enjoy teaching God’s Word, and serving God’s people!
