Luis and Elizabeth Uvalle
Hispanic Ministry leadership
Children’s Ministry leadership
Luis and Elizabeth’s ministry started as children in Mexico. Luis visited many mountain villages at his Pastor’s side and learned how to serve and share the gospel firsthand. At the age of 17 he moved away from home and enrolled in a Missions Bible School where he became a certified minister in 1998. He then moved on to be a missionary at an orphanage in Matamoros, Mexico where he spent 11 years learning numerous tools to use in his life and ministry. When visiting his family in Jaumave, his hometown, he met Elizabeth for the first time.
Elizabeth was born in Grand Island but moved at age 6 with her family to Mexico when her parents were called to be missionaries. Elizabeth was always involved in ministry and taught her first children’s church class on her own at age 9, and preached her first sermon at age 14. She became a youth leader at age 17 where she oversaw and directed 24 church youth group ministries.
Luis and Elizabeth met on New Year’s Day 2008. Luis moved back to Jaumave and got involved in ministry there. Together they got involved in the ministry of a Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center. Together they led the worship on Sunday morning services and were involved in the evangelism team. Luis and Elizabeth were married on Valentine’s Day 2009. They moved to Grand Island in 2015. They have 4 children, their pride and joy, Melody, Evelyn, Luis, and David.
At Destiny Church they have found a new purpose and consider Destiny Church their extended family. Luis and Elizabeth lead Destino con Proposito, the bilingual, Hispanic services at Destiny and Elizabeth finds great joy in leading the children’s ministry there as well. The entire Uvalle family look forward to serving wherever the Lord leads here with our family at Destiny Church.
