Rev. German Gomez, Pastor, San Juan Mission
When German Gomez arrived in America in 1985, leading a Christian ministry was not exactly what he had in mind. Gomez, a native of Vera Cruz, Mexico, was doing forestry work in nearby Bibb County when his supervisor invited him to church. He started reading the Bible and soon felt the call to be a missionary.

I came searching for fortune money but it happened that I found the Lord, Gomez says.

Several years later, he went to Texas and received training at Southern Methodist University. Back at Centreville, AL, Gomez was instrumental in starting a Hispanic mission there.

In January 1999, he started what would become San Juan Mission in a little house near Clanton First United Methodist Church. Gomez became licensed through the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church and now serves as an associate pastor under CFUMC, leading the Hispanic mission.

German's wife, Leticia, and their three children all help with the effort in various ways. The San Juan mission now serves as a hub for a total of 8 mission locations including six in Alabama and two in Mexico.
