Numa Gomez holds a Bachelor of Science in business administration (1992) and an MDiv in theology (2006) from Golden Gate Baptist Seminary (Scottsdale, AZ). He is a licensed ordained minister (Southern Baptist Convention) and served as pastor of a Hispanic church from 1997 – 2013. He is married to Pamela and they have two children, Luke (26) and Elisa (24).
I am one of seven children of Jose and Amparo Gomez. Currently, I am finishing up my PhD studies in December of 2014 and beginning the dissertation phase of my doctorate from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS). I am also a Chaplain of the Milwaukee Brewers at the Phoenix-Maryvale Spring Training facility. I enjoy reading, riding my bike, and racquetball. I enjoy watching various sports, especially watching my favorite team, the L.A. Dodgers.
I enjoy teaching Christian worldview, theology and other biblical studies at the university level. I also enjoy being part of the faculty that teaches these subjects. I believe this is a privilege granted to me by God and it is my calling to impact lives for Jesus Christ in this setting. I enjoy this calling to teach, mentor and equip students with the truth and apply these truths so they might go and reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Learn! Learn as much as you can, as your faith will be tested in intellectual ways you cannot imagine right now. Also, learn to be part of something that is bigger than yourself. Be a part of church that shares your passion for service to Christ. God calls us to serve, and to whom much is given, much will be required (Luke 16:10).
