Luis Gomez 
Children& Family
Minister 

Minister Luis Gomez is a Bilingual Teacher who was born in Mexico and came to the United States in 1993. 

Luis Gomez was born on October 9th, 1973, in Mante, Mexico. The oldest of three children, Gomez had to learn the English Language, to work in many odd jobs, to take care of his two younger siblings and to earn his college degree.

Luis Gomez graduated from the University of Houston. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. He has been serving for 22 years as an Elementary Bilingual Teacher and as a High School Teacher. He is also certified as a Special Education Teacher and served for 7 years in that area.

Luis Gomez was 19 years old when neighborhood friends invited him to start attending church. He accepted just because he was curious to find out why these friends and their families were always happy, caring and things were always going right with them. He discovered Jesus and immediately gave his life to Him. 

He is happily married to Jeannie Gomez and has two beautiful children, Estella 17, and Armando 11. He tries his best to direct his life and family according to God’s ways. After challenging health problems, he realized he didn’t want to die as an ordinary man. He wanted to serve God and His church in a greater way. He decided to go back to college and earned his Master’s in Ministry in May 2020.

Currently, Luis is happily serving as a Children and Family Minister at Faith Sugar Land Church. He is always happy to work with children and their families. He also really enjoys being part of the outreach system because he loves talking and meeting new people.

 In a few more years, Minister Luis Gomez is planning to retire from the  Education System and dedicate himself, full time, to the Lord’s Ministry.
