Michael Rodriguez is the pastor-teacher of Gladeview Baptist Church. From a young age he felt the call of God to serve him in the pastoral ministry and thus began his academic preparation at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. It was in this university where he met his beloved wife Lisa, whom he married in 1982, after completing his pastoral studies. When moving to New York he served as an assistant pastor in Manhattan Bible Church where he stayed for 4 years and it was there that he received the call from God to found, in South Florida, "El Templo Bíblico de Miami". Many souls were reached and discipled with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. In 2002 Templo Bíblico de Miami teamed up with Gladeview Baptist Church, bringing a new opportunity to reach and influence the community. For the last 15 years of this new stage of GBC many souls have been reached and transformed for the Glory of God. His passion and calling is to bring the good news of Christ to all those who still do not know Him as their Lord and Savior.
God always tests whom he wants to use...
