Saul Dominguez was ordained on Sept. 6, 2023 at the Topeka Hispanic Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Dominguez currently serves as the communication director and scholarship coordinator for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference and has also had pastoral experience prior to arriving at the conference.

The ordination service was attended by local church members, administration and pastors from around the conference. President Ron Carlson led out in the ordination and Alejandro Dovald shared an ordination message titled “From Logos to Rhema.” Dovald challenged everyone to not only preach the words (logos) of Scripture but that they would be living words (rhema) through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Dominguez was born in Washington state where he attended an Adventist school from K-12. After graduating from Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Washington, he decided to study theology at Andrews University where he met his wife Katie. It was during his undergraduate experience that he spent a year as a student mission to the Marshall Islands. In 2014 they received the call to serve in the Upper Columbia Conference and in 2018 Saul returned to Andrews to complete his Masters of Divinity. He graduated in December 2020.

Once again they returned to UCC and began pastoring in Hermiston, Oregon, with two Spanish speaking churches and a church plant. In April 2022, Saul and Katie accepted the call to serve in the Kansas-Nebraska Conference. They are grateful for God’s leading in their ministry and for the opportunity to serve in this capacity. Their family has also grown this year with the arrival of Xavier (6 months), and Leo (6 years) could not be more excited!
