Yeriel was born and raised in West Tampa, FL. He was raised in a Christian home and at the tender age of eight realized a God given passion for evangelism. At the age of 30 he answered the Lord's call to plant a multi-ethnic church in the heart of Tampa with the help of his wife, Pastor, family and close friends. he has a passion for theology, urban apologetics, Greek literature and early church history. His favorite quote comes from Pastor and theologian R.C. Sproul that reads, "We do not segments our lives, giving some time to God, some to our business or schooling, while keeping parts to ourselves. The idea is to live all of our lives in the presence of God, under the authority of God, and for the honor and glory of God. That is what the Christian life is all about." Yeriel is currently enrolled in Faith Theological Seminary where he is studying towards a Th.D. He's currently working on his first book, "Labour or Love: which speaks on the fact that a Holy, righteous and just God would form mankind in His image despite His foreknowledge of their future rebellion. Yeriel currently lives in Tampa with his wife Francheska and their two children, Jazlene and Israel.
"Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. he is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent that theirs."
- Hebrews 1:1-4 ESV
