Title: Ruling Elder, US Army Ret., Founder-Oasis of Hope Minist
Email Address:

I have been blessed in life to have Jennifer Reyes as my wife.  We are a blended family and together we have 5 children ranging from 14-27.  I served my country in the United States Army for 16 years.  Due to injuries sustained in Iraq, I was medically retired in 2009 and  Honorably Discharged.  Jennifer and I are the Founders of Oasis of Hope Ministries.  This ministry has taken us across denominational boundaries and allowed us to disciple, evangelize and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ not only in Flagstaff but in other states in the continental U.S. and for the last two years to Costa Rica.  Jennifer and I have been active members at COR for almost four years.  Last year (2018), I was invited to serve as a Ruling Elder, and very recently as a member of the Pastoral Search Committee.  I am currently a full-time student at Northern Arizona University pursuing a double major – Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology and a Bachelors of Science in Photography.

“There is no greater joy than to see the least, the last, and the lost come to Jesus.  It is truly a great joy and honor to preach the Gospel. Once people’s hearts are flooded with God’s love…the transformation is unbelievably amazing.”
