Roberto Correa has accepted the invitation of the Mid-America Union Conference to serve part-time as the coordinator of Hispanic Ministries for the union’s nine-state territory. Correa, who also serves as Hispanic Ministries coordinator for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference, will officially begin his new duties in February.

“Roberto comes with many years of experience in our territory and will be a great blessing to our union,” said Mid-America Union president Gary Thurber. Correa will work under the MAUC’s Ministerial Department.

Pastor Correa’s ministry has been characterized by a great enthusiasm and dedication to see his churches grow and to plant new congregations. Correa states that his goal as Hispanic Ministries coordinator is to promote awareness of needs and opportunities in order to reach the Hispanic population for Christ. He also aims to provide resources, training for pastors and lay members, and “to share together the good news of the gospel with delight.”

Elder Correa was born in Argentina, South America, where his parents were Adventist teachers. After Correa’s graduation with a degree in theology, he worked for five years in Argentina as a pastor. In 2000, he emigrated to United States where he worked for the Oregon and Montana conferences.

Since June 2008, he has been serving in the Kansas-Nebraska Conference.

Pastor Correa is married to Paula, who he says has been a very important part of his ministry.  The couple have two children who are currently students at Midland Adventist Academy in Kansas.
