The Solanos moved to Mexico in the summer of 2017, to plant a church in Guadalajara—second largest city in Mexico. They joined a group of people that had been already congregating for a couple of years. Together, in God’s providence, they planted Iglesia Comunidad Bíblica church. Furthermore, Alberto will be serving as profesor in Word of Grace Biblical Seminary (Mexico).
Alberto was first called to ministry during his last year in college, when the Lord providentially used John Piper’s biographical sermon on the life of Adoniram Judson to stir in him a passion for evangelism and pastoral ministry. After graduation, he moved to Guadalajara (Mexico), where he began teaching in several Bible studies and weekly youth gatherings. God used this time to show him the need for sound doctrine and biblical preaching that exists in both Guadalajara and Mexico in general.
God’s calling in Alberto’s life drove him to search for a place that would equip him for pastoral ministry, having the right theology and proper hermeneutics. By God’s grace,
he was able to attend The Master’s Seminary in order to pursue the degrees of Master’s in Dvinity (MDiv) and Master’s in Theology (ThM). It was in Los Angeles, while attending seminary, that Alberto met Kathy. Born and raised in Germany, Kathy had recently moved to California to work as a nanny. After some time of distance relationship (because sh moved away to finish her bachelor’s degree), they got married in Munich (Germany), Kathy’s home town.
On July 23, 2017 Alberto was ordained to ministry by Grace Community Church’s elders. That same day they were sent out as GMI missionaries to Guadalajara.
Today, Alberto and Kathy live in Guadalajara and have recently welcomed their first daughter, Elisabeth Sophia.
