Miguel Verazas was ordained at the Pleasant Hill church on Sabbath, August 13.
"I am humbled by the grace and mercy that God has shown me in my spiritual journey,” Verazas said. “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. He earned a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Andrews University.
When asked, Verazas reflected, “My favorite part of ministry is giving Bible studies and preparing children of God to be baptized.”
