General Superintendent Stan A. Toler announced the election of Caleb Herrera this week as the new superintendent of the Texas-Oklahoma Latin District. The election comes with the approval of the Board of General Superintendents and in consultation with the District Advisory Committee.
Herrera was elected on the fifth ballot and will fill the vacancy left by Jose Irineo Palacios, who resigned. His new assignment is effective May 17.
"I am honored, privileged, and extremely humbled both by the trust and confidence my people have placed in me, and by the vast responsibility that it implies," Herrera said. "It will only be by the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit that I will be able to accomplish what the Lord of the Harvest is asking of me. I am ready and willing to serve."
For the past 24 years, Herrera has served as pastor of the Las Palmas Church of the Nazarene in San Antonio. He also serves as the district continuing education coordinator.
A graduate of Southern Nazarene University, he received his bachelor's degree in 1976 and went on to receive his master's from Texas University in 1981.
Caleb and Aurora Herrera currently reside in Helotes, Texas. The Texas-Oklahoma Latin District is headquartered in Mercedes, Texas.
