Lay Elder

Originally from Brazil, I was raised Catholic. I fully heard and understood the gospel for the first time when I was 16 years old and gave my life to Jesus then. Years later, I met Mosaic’s Lead Pastor at the Legends neighborhood pool before the church had started. My family and I went to the very first gathering (when it was called Ocean Church) and have been going ever since. Eventually, I was asked to become an elder. My heart to serve in this role is to point people to Jesus and the truth of His word, guarding the church against the philosophies of this world.

Married with five kids ranging from 14-21 years old, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love soccer, tennis, and travel.
