Pastor Guido Encalada was born in Cuenca, Ecuador in 1965. He came to the United States in 1981. At the age of 20 he met his wife Maria with whom he now has 4 sons. At the beginning of the year 1990 they both had an encounter with the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. They immediately started working in different areas of ministry and administration at an Assemblies of God Church in Brooklyn, New York.
In September of 2000, Radio Vision Christiana sent him to Ecuador to manage 2 radio stations. While stationed there, he started a Bible Study group which grew to be Centro Evangelistico Renovacion (Renovation Evangelical Center). This Bible Study group grew to be a well established, healthy church with about 100 attendees on average every Sunday. In December 2003 Radio Vision Christiana brought Pastor Guido back to the United States to work in their main office in Paterson, New Jersey as Director of Promotions. Two years later he was promoted to the position of Programming Director.
Pastor Guido began attending Calvary Temple’s Spanish Ministry in September 2004. With a strong calling to ministry in his life, he began serving as a Pastor’s Assistant and then promoted to Associate Pastor of the Spanish ministry. In January 2007 Pastor Guido began serving, full-time as Pastor of the Spanish Ministry at Calvary Temple.
Pastor Guido’s increasing passion for God is evident in his ministry. His main goal is to win souls and train them for the ministry. He feels there is a leader within each believer!
