Gamaliel (Gama) Espinosa I Spanish Pastor
Gama was raised a Nazarene in Vera Cruz, Mexico, but has been an adopted Texan for 25 years now. After spending three years in Orange County, California serving as a worship leader, God moved him to Texas where he has lead worship, small groups and music classes, serving at three different congregations. In July and August of 2016, a plan began to unfold to serve as the Spanish pastor in a new ministry plant within WCC.
Gama, with his beautiful wife, Junisa, and their full-of-life children, Mia and Elizabeth, are excited about their ministry at WCC. Gama enjoys photography, music (especially Christian Jazz), remote controlled airplanes, fishing and reading the Bible.
Gama's aspiration is this: "Deep inside I knew that I needed to prepare myself for when God would call me to the pastoral ministry. My heart is to serve God with excellence in everything I do, and to expand His kingdom. My vision is for us to be a healthy, strong, and growing church."
