Almost 25 years ago, Rev. Dr. Gómez came to Shenandoah University to study music. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Composition and fell in love with Winchester. Right after he graduated, he married Heather who became his soulmate and partner in ministry. Together they have one daughter. They moved to Atlanta where he went to Emory University and received his seminary degree with a Master of Divinity. He continued his studies and attended Columbia Theological Seminary where he received a Master of Theology. He served at the Virginia Council of Churches as the Executive Director of Rural Family Development, a ministry with 180 employees serving farmworkers and their families through five migrant and seasonal head start centers, including one in Winchester. He also served the Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Association as the interim executive director in Washington, D.C. He is an ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church.

Since 2011, he has served and became an active part of the Winchester area as pastor, chaplain, and advocate. He volunteers as chaplain for the Fire and Police Departments of Frederick County and the City of Winchester. He is the first President of the Latino Clergy Caucus in the Virginia Conference. He serves as faculty of the Methodist Seminary in Cuba where he has already taught to almost 200 pastors. He serves boards and agencies at Conference and District levels. He holds a Doctor in Ministry in Public Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston. He comes with strong Wesleyan theological roots and believes that Missions is vital for ministry and looks for opportunities to serve God and expand as far as possible.
