Announcing Juan Valdes as full-time speaker for Reasons for Hope

Reasons for Hope is happy to announce that Juan Valdes has joined the ministry as a full-time speaker.

Since April 2013 Juan has been an adjunct speaker for Reasons for Hope, speaking at churches, conferences, youth camps and more.  In February, Juan even engaged with a well-known and outspoken atheist in the Avalos/Valdes Debate a debate on the origins of the world, and that same month he became the co-host of Reasons for Hope’s Hope Talks Radio.

Juan is also the senior pastor of a Spanish-speaking congregation in Florida and has worked at a Christian school as both a chaplain and a teacher for more than 20 years.  His educational background includes graduate work at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and master’s degrees from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Logos Graduate School. He will soon complete his Doctor of Ministry in Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary.

Juan has a love for the Lord and a passion to reach both English and Spanish-speaking people with God’s message of redemption and biblical truths.   God has blessed  Juan with exciting and motivating communication skills, which he enjoys using to encourage and equip believers to know, live and share what they believe.

Juan’s passion for teaching biblical apologetics, and his ability to effectively communicate in both English and Spanish, makes him a much sought after speaker. 

Please add Juan to your prayers for pastors and ministry speakers.  In addition to a schedule that is already being filled with speaking engagements, Juan will continue to pastor his congregation.  We thank the people of Juan’s church for sharing him with Reasons for Hope and we ask that you also pray for his church family.

As always, we at Reasons for Hope thank you for your prayers and support.

May God bless you as you serve Him…and to Him be all the glory.
