He was engaged in ministry beginning at an early age, having participated in numerous church dramas, outreach, and youth leadership.

Angel Rios

Angel Rios

Angel and his wife Jina were married in 2015 and are proud parents to a handsome 3 year old boy named Kairos Jaden. After growing up and serving faithfully as youth leaders in their former church they felt a calling from God to move to the beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas. Starting their journey as public school teachers in a new city with some questions about their new home, God was quick to answer their prayer of “Why San Antonio?” They joined First Assembly in August of 2018 and it quickly felt right at home. While both serving at the church, Pastor Angel excitedly accepted the calling to be the new Student Ministry Pastor. Pastor Angel and Jina are so grateful to lead this generation after God’s own heart and are expecting God to move in the lives of youth and young adults here at First Assembly!
