Ramon and Ana Rodriguez


Service Area: International

Ministry Focus

At the age of 17, Ramon felt God call him to full-time Christian ministry, so he registered at Seminario Bautista de Nogales (SEBANO), a theological institution of the Conservative Baptists in Mexico.

After graduating from seminary in 1978, he began serving as a missionary in Sonora, Mexico, where he planted two churches.

In 1983, Ramon felt the need to train other Mexican nationals for ministry, so he moved to Nogales, Sonora, and started teaching at the seminary. He also pastored one of the churches in Nogales.

In 2003 Ramon graduated in Business Administration from the Nogales Technological Institute. After serving at the seminary for 21 years, in 2005 Ramon was appointed as the Executive Director of the seminary.

Ramon is developing a new strategy for the seminary to reach a greater number of students in the Nogales, Sonora and Northwest Mexico area. The extension program of the Nogales Baptist Seminary involves courses in different cities and great ministry in the prisons of Nogales.
