Meet Our Pastors
Pastor Luis and his wife, Liala, joined the Gladeview family in the beginning of 2020. He currently serves as the English Pastor and as the Chaplain of Gladeview Christian School. Before coming to our church, Luis served in various areas of ministry since 2011, including young adult and youth ministries.
Stemming from his passion for discipleship, Luis loves to help people grow in their relationship with Christ and deepen their knowledge of the Word. Alongside the pastoral team, he has established a vision to reach our church, our community, and our city for Christ by empowering believers to fulfill the great commission.
Luis was born in Peru and raised in Miami. He and his wife have three children; Lily, Emma, and Evan.

Luis received his Master of Divinity in Homiletics from Liberty University in May 2023.
Growing up in a family of worship leaders, Pastor Jose began serving in ministry at the age of 10. As he grew and later served as the Youth Leader here at Gladeview Baptist Church, Jose heard God’s call to ministry. While completing his Master of Divinity at Palm Beach Atlantic University, he served in several pastoral positions in Palm Beach County.
Upon finishing seminary, Jose was ordained at Gladeview in 2020, an honor he holds dear from the church where he discovered his calling to ministry. As Jose and his wife, Giselle, served in Palm Beach, God provided the opportunity for Jose to return to Gladeview as a pastor. They are beyond grateful for the opportunity to be back home with their family and church.
Jose was born and raised in Miami, FL in a Cuban household. He and his wife have one child, Caleb. Jose’s passion is to see people find hope and grace in Jesus and help them grow and mature in their faith. In addition to his heart for ministry, Jose loves reading, basketball, creating music, and Cuban food.

In 2002, TBM and Gladeview Baptist Church merged to become one congregation. Michael continues to serve as the Senior Pastor. His vision is to preach the gospel to every people, tribe and tongue so that souls may be saved and transformed through the power of the person and work of Jesus Christ.
