Chrissy and Jairo
Currently: Jairo is the Worship and Creative Arts Pastor & Chrissy is the Youth Pastor at Arlington First Church of the Nazarene in Arlington, TX.
Responsibilities: “We work together as a team in both areas of ministry,” says Chrissy. “I lead and oversee all youth ministry programming and decisions and assist Jairo in our worship department by co-leading our worship services, co-directing our choir and drama teams, and all the preparations that go along with that.”
Achievements: Together the couple has co-led worship at large regional worship events. The two Maldonados have also been hired to lead worship events including retreats, camps, conferences, banquets, etc. Chrissy is a member of two professional singing groups and has performed with an opera company as well.
In His Words: “The classes at SNU that dealt with my degree helped me out in life in a way that I couldn’t have experienced at any other university,” says Jairo. “My ministry and music classes allowed me to become not only a student of music and ministry but a practicing minister in areas all around OKC.”
