Joining us on July 1, 2018 is Pastor Daniel Gómez who is originally from San Diego, Califor-nia. Daniel and Delia met in church and together, they led the 20-30 Vision young adult min-istry program. They married in 1990 and have three boys who are all musicians and are ac-tively involved in the local congregation. They moved to Las Vegas, NV in 1996 and enjoyed raising their children in church.
Daniel served as an Associate Pastor at University UMC in a multicultural-multilingual setting. University UMC became known as the church of congregations celebrating five wor-ship services on Sunday in 7 different languages (English, Spanish, Tagalog, Korean, Chinese, French and Swahili). In 2008, Daniel was the recipient of the Harry Denman award by The Foundation for Evangelism in Lake Junaluska, NC. The Harry Denman Evangelism Award pro-gram honors United Methodists in each annual conference whose exceptional ministry of evangelism – expressed in Word (what), Sign (why), and Deed (how) – brings people into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. In 2010, Daniel became a member of the Board of Trustees for The Foundation for Evangelism.
In 2013, Daniel was appointed as the Associate Pastor at Red Mountain UMC in Mesa, AZ. He completed his course of study program at Perkins School of Theology. Daniel has a passion for worship, pastoral care, community outreach and evan-gelism. He is an avid soccer fan and enjoys walking and tasting foods from different parts of the world.
