Rev. Lorenzo Miguel

UCLC Church Liaison

Rev. Lorenzo Miguel was with Gatherings of Hope (GOH), the predecessor to the Urban Church Leadership Center before it was a twinkle in anyone’s eye. He was a big part of the success of the 2007 Kent County Congregations Study, making sure that Hispanic churches and pastors were well-represented. Once GOH was formed, he was instrumental in connecting pastors with its educational and ministry opportunities. He was in the first cohort of the Hispanic Ministry Certificate, and is continuing his education, pursuing a Master’s in Pastoral Care at Calvin Theological Seminary. As a Hispanic Church Liaison, he connects with pastors in Greater Grand Rapids with the training, coaching, and learning resources at the UCLC.
