Next Steps Pastor
Hector Morales was born and raised in Escondido, CA, and grew up attending Emmanuel Faith and Iglesia Latina Emanuel, a Spanish-language church plant of EFCC. Hector served in our Junior High Ministry while in college at Cal State San Marcos and joined the Emmanuel Faith staff in 1997.
During that year he started The Bridge, an after-school tutoring program in a mostly Latino neighborhood in Escondido through our High School Ministry.
In 2004 Hector graduated from Bethel Seminary San Diego and was asked to continue and expand the church’s Community Outreach efforts. Since 2017 Hector has enjoyed connecting newcomers to our church family through our Welcome & Membership (Next Steps) ministries, whether they are new to church altogether or have been walking with Jesus for many years.
He and Brenda have been married since 2005 and have been blessed with two kids, Cecilia and Sammy. He enjoys the outdoors, cooking and playing most sports. You can usually find Hector on a field somewhere coaching baseball, softball or soccer … something he really enjoys!
