Pastor Adino Salazar Cienfuegos was ordained as a minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Sabbath, June 11, at the Hispanic Ministries Camp Meeting at Camp Yavapines. Elder Jorge A. Ramírez, North American Division Undersecretary, returned to Arizona, where he was most recently the Executive Secretary and Ministerial Director, to be a part of the service. Elder Ramírez, along with Arizona Conference Hispanic Ministries Director Abimael Escalante and Arizona Conference Treasurer Reggie Leach, presented Pastor Salazar with his credentials and gifts from the conference.
The following Sabbath, June 18, Pastor Eddie A. Turner III was ordained by the Arizona Conference administration. Surrounded by friends and family on stage, Pastor Turner recounted his journey to the ministry. Currently Pastor Turner serves as the associate pastor at Glendale Adventist church and pastor at Maricopa Village church.
