Nino holds a Bachelor Systematic of Theology and a Master of Divinity with a focus in premarital counseling. He has been in ministry for over 20 years. He has held positions as Youth Pastor, Assistant Pastor, and Pastor Pro-tempore.
Nino was introduced to Soul Shepherding after having a conversation with Pastor Sheridan McDaniel, where Nino expressed his intrigue with Christian Psychology, but how it would be too difficult to go back to school. After attending the first institute, he knew that this was the program that he was looking for, not only for training but also to receive the care needed for his own soul. He has the desire to see others emotionally and spiritually healthy, experiencing Jesus’ care and grace.
Nino and his wife Yavonne live in San Pedro, CA, and have two adult children and three granddaughters.
