Ariel Martinez, Pastor Administration and East Montana Location
Having attended Del Sol since age 9, Ariel has grown up loving the church & serving in the church. By age 13, he made the best decision of his life: to accept Jesus as Savior & follow Him as Lord. For many of his teenage years he planned to go into the restaurant business but instead, sensed a leading from God to go into ministry as a career. Throughout college, he worked as a youth ministry intern at Del Sol and served as the interim youth pastor for a year. In 2008 he earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Liberty University, and in 2010, he launched the Northeast location of Del Sol – a work which has not been easy, but has been tremendously rewarding.
In his free time Ariel likes to read, spend time discovering new restaurants around the city with his wife Lauren, watch Netflix, work out, and he is an up-and-coming road cyclist.
His favorite verses is John 10:10 where Jesus said:
“The thief comes only to rob, kill, and destroy. I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest.”
