The Stewardship Ministries Department supports the mission of the Texico Conference through leadership training and the education of church members in stewardship principles. The purpose of the Stewardship Ministries is to aid in the integration of the faith walk with God into every area of life—individually and corporately.



R. Antonio Cano

Stewardship Director

Pastor Cano has served as a pastor for over 20 years. His experience includes leading several churches throughout Central California, serving as an evangelist for the Central California Conference and working with multiple Adventist schools and academies. Pastor Cano moved to Albuquerque with his family in January of 2020, but he is no stranger to New Mexico. As a young man, Pastor Cano lived in Southern New Mexico where his father pastored several Texico church districts. His wife Melanie, is very supportive of his ministry and is currently teaching at Sandia View Christian School. They have two children, a daughter Eliana and a son, Lucas. Pastor Cano’s passion in ministry is to have an intimate personal relationship with Christ and meet the needs of people, while discipling others to do the same.
