Miraculously saved in January of 1979, Gloria was ‘set free’ from the pain and hurt of her early 20’s and introduced to the Love and Power of Jesus Christ at a Revival Meeting led by evangelist Jerry B Walker at a church in Bell Gardens, CA. All because of a simple phone call from Alicia Rivera who told her in her season of need ‘I care and invite you to meet me there’
Immediately after her coming to Jesus, Gloria experienced the precious experience known as the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and started her faith journey. Soon after meeting Jesus she met Pastor Luis. Together they started a Singles Ministry in the church they attended that continues today.
Gloria currently ministers as a speaker to the Women of Teen Challenge Ministries on a monthly basis and has been gifted in her ability to lead others into the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Several have experienced this ‘gift’ through her ministry as she also shares with other groups and individuals.
She has raised 3 boys who have all graduated from college and has been married for 34 years to Pastor Luis.
