He has been involved in various roles with Awana since it started in Venezuela in 1985 including serving on the Venezuelan National Board, and as an Awana Missionary, Program and Training Director for Latin America and Hispanic Ministry Consultant. During that time, he and his team have developed very successful Awana resources for use in Venezuela and all of Latin America.
Miguel currently serves as Area Director for Latin America and Hispanic Ministries. In his role, Miguel now oversees the Hispanic Awana ministry in the United States and in 17 Latin America countries where more than 100,000 children attend Awana in 1,600 clubs each week.
