Bernie is also privileged to be an Associate Professor for Biblical and Theological Studies in the School of Ministry. He is a straightforward communicator whose passion is connecting God’s unchanging truth with diverse cultures through the preaching and teaching of the Bible. Born and raised in Miami, Bernie is proud of his Hispanic heritage and was raised in an environment that embraced cultural diversity. He is a husband, father, pastor, and teacher. 

He received a B.A. in English literature at Florida International University and a Th.M. in biblical exposition and pastoral leadership at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he completed his Ph.D. in New Testament Studies. Bernie has also served as a church consultant, itinerant minister, and church planter. In addition to his role at PBA, he serves as Teaching Pastor for Family Church of West Palm Beach.  

“Coming from a Cuban-American home has allowed me to see the beauty of God and His people in the creative avenue of culture and language,” he says. “I desire to be used by God to bridge the gaps between the truth of God and the lives of needy people who desperately need to hear and see the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Bernie and his wife, Ana, have two sons and a daughter.
