Robert was born and raised in South Texas speaking both English and Spanish. He grew up in ministry with his family in Mercedes Texas where his mother was a local licensed preacher.
Rhesa grew up in Guatemala, the daughter of missionaries. She spent most of her life there, until returning to the States to attend college.
Robert and Rhesa met at Southern Nazarene University, and were married in 2003. Together they seek God and desire more than anything serve the Lord in cross-cultural settings.
Roberto has served as a children’s pastor, worship leader, and Hispanic pastor at churches in Texas, Missouri, and Tennessee. He is a certified public school teacher and an ordained minister with the Church of the Nazarene. He served for three years as an administrative and marketing assistant for the Spanish division of Nazarene Publishing House and has also taught for the Creative Discovery Museum of Chattanooga TN.
Rhesa is currently a Transport Nurse at El Paso Children’s Hospital and has served as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurse for over ten years.
The Rodriguez family currently serves as Mission Corps Missionaries with the Nazarene Border Initiative based out of El Paso Texas. Their responsibilities include encouraging and supporting current churches, both English and Spanish, on both sides of the US Mexico Border and help host Work and Witness teams to El Paso.
They have three children, Ruthy 7, Josiah 6, and Mikayla 5. As a family, they have served in Central Asia, speaking Russian, as volunteer missionaries for the Church of the Nazarene.
