Jose Vazquez, the pastor of the Fredericksburg (Va.) church, was recently named Potomac Conference’s vice president for administration. He begins his new assignment August 19.
Vazquez joined Potomac as a pastor in 2014. He previously served as a pastor in both the Central California and Indiana conferences. While in Indiana, he also served as the conference’s director for community services.
Before taking on the duties of full-time ministry, Vazquez worked in the business sector for the vice president for a manufacturing company. Fluent in both Spanish and English, he also served as the director of an ESL program for the Wawasee School Corporation (Ind.).
“The Potomac Conference is blessed to have Jose Vazquez accept this call,” says Bill Miller, president. “As he was vetted and interviewed, we felt God was leading us to consider him for this position. There are many key elements that make him well-suited for this role—his prayer journey, business background, the knowledge he brings from his various church and employment experiences and the health and growth of his present congregation. He is a great addition to the Potomac administrative team.”
Vazquez says he and his wife, Sonia, are humbled by the invitation to serve in this new capacity. “We are confident that God has been leading us to this point and that He will continue to do so,” he states. “We ask for your prayers as we undertake this new assignment.”
Vazquez graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Oakwood (College) University (Ala.), and earned a Masters of Divinity from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary (Mich.).
