OUR FOUNDERS

Founder Ben Vazquez is a graduate of North Park University Theological Seminary, Chicago, IL. Currently, he serves as Manager of Global Engagement at Serve-Globally. Working with over 100 Covenant Missionaries in five different regions around the world, Africa, Asia, Europe, South-Central America & Caribbean, and Middle East North Africa.

For eight years he was an Associate Pastor and Senior Director of Ministry Development and Outreach at New Life Covenant Southeast Church, Chicago, IL. Since 2009, Pastor Ben Vazquez and his wife Marisol have been dedicated to serving globally. Pastor Ben’s passion for missionary work started at an early age, which took him to many different countries to share and learn about the mission of God. Marisol’s educational background in Public Health has led her to be an advocate for global health. She has worked passionately to provide acute medical care and health education through global projects and medical missions. Both Ben and Marisol share a common interest, to see people live a life full of joy and purpose. They continue to lead mission teams abroad to provide health education, medical care and spiritual direction in the Caribbean and Central America. Together they have realized the transformation that takes place within individuals who are exposed to a global perspective of God’s love through faith, unity, and action. This has expanded their vision and inspired the development of a missional culture, "Urban Mission".
