Ricardo Castro



In 2022, Pastor Ricardo Castro returned to the Texico Conference, having successfully earned his Bachelor of Arts in Theology and his Master of Divinity degree from Andrews University. Originally hailing from California, Pastor Castro responded to God’s calling to become a minister. He holds a fervent desire for community engagement and church expansion, aiming to spread the Bible’s message of hope, love, and everlasting salvation through Jesus Christ. Equally, he’s dedicated to the personal development of each member.

Currently, Pastor Castro serves the Central New Mexico church district and oversees the Belen, Los Lunas, Socorro, and Truth or Consequences churches. He shares his life journey with his beloved spouse, Miriam, and they are blessed with two young children. What Pastor Castro values most about his ministry is the opportunity to connect with a diverse array of people and extend a helping hand, whether for their physical or spiritual needs. His deepest passion lies in nurturing a profound love for God within others and preparing them for the imminent return of Christ.
