Our Pastor


Pastor Art has led a life of service first as a Marine Sergeant and later as a Law Enforcement Officer. He and Yvonne were married on November 14, 1987 and have two wonderful children, Kristian and Nicole. He was born in Cuba and came to the United Stated in September of 1969 with his parents, brothers and sisters looking for a better way of life.

Pastor Art and Yvonne both surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ in 1985 and were subsequently baptized by emersion and have faithfully been serving God ever since. Before coming to Emerson Bible Church, Art was very active at the Englewood Assemblies of God Church serving in many different capacities, wherever there was a need.  He taught Sunday School for many years, served with the Royal Rangers, and was a member of the Board for many terms.  He always understood that involvement produces commitment and that a follower of Jesus Christ needs to put his or her faith in action. While at Englewood Assemblies of God, Art and Yvonne also taught a marriage enrichment class for over five years at their home in Emerson.

Pastor Art strongly believes that everyone is in need of direction and that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth and the life.”

Stop by and say hello.  He would love to meet you.
