The Lord saved Pastor Ismael in the early 90's, delivering him from his upbringing and giving him a new purpose. Shortly, in 2002, the Lord called him into ministry as a pastor. He has served as pastor for God's Garden since early 2014. Pastor Ismael is currently finishing a Ph.D. from Trinity Theological Seminary. He is married with 5 children. He is a firm believer in expositional teaching and is committed to rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
