Miles With a Mission Event Cover

Miles for Mission Cuba MapOur Dean for Advancement, Rev. Tim McPherson, plans to ride 800 miles across Cuba February 20-27, 2019, along with Dr. Gary Morsch and other riders representing One Heart – Many Hands (OHMH), to build a bridge of goodwill to the people of Cuba. While OHMH raises money for disaster response and medical supplies, Tim will be delivering ministry resources to Nazarene pastors in Cuba through the office of the Nazarene National Church President and raising money for the “Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo Scholarship for Hispanic Students.”

The “Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo Scholarship for Hispanic Students” was endowed in May 2016 by NTS Trustee Juan and Ines Vazquez Carillo, honoring Juan’s father on his 90th birthday. The first scholarship recipient was Puerto Rico West District Superintendent, Rev. Ramon Sierra, as he began studies toward his Spanish Doctor of Ministry at NTS in 2017. Your gifts amounting to $50,000 would double the principal of this important scholarship, bringing it to $100,000! It is worth noting that if the principal totals $150,000, the Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo Scholarship will become NTS’ first full-tuition scholarship for Hispanic students! NTS’ recent Giving Tuesday campaign has already “kick-started” the match! 100% of your gift supports the Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo Scholarship. (Generous donors have already sponsored Rev. McPherson’s travel expenses.)


Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo has been a Nazarene pastor since 1956. He pastored for 46 years in Puerto Rico and started missionary work with the late William Porter in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela. Rev. Vazquez opened four new churches in Puerto Rico and prepared thirteen new pastors on the island; he is now assisting the Church of the Nazarene in Levittown, Puerto Rico as Dean of Pastors. Fueled by a passion for holiness, Rev. Vázquez Carrillo loves to preach the gospel and devotedly prepares a sermon every week.  Rev. Ángel Vázquez Carrillo, thank you for your example. Thank you for your continuing service. Thank you for your heart for God, your heart for holiness, your love for others, and your lifetime commitment to the mission of the Church of the Nazarene.
