English Pastors Gabriel and Leyinska
Pastors Gabriel and Leyinska were married in October 2017, and joined the staff of Emanuel Church leading our new English congregation. This new work has been years in the making as our church has traditionally been a Spanish speaking congregation. Both Pastor Gabriel and Leyinska have a heart for reaching those who need the Gospel message of Jesus the most.
Gabriel was born and raised in Houston, TX, attended Latin American Bible Institute in San Antonio, TX and Southwestern Assemblies of God University. He previously served our church as Youth Pastor for seven years. Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
