Robert Martinez, Sr. is retiring after 29 years of faithful ministry to the Lord. Prior to arriving in Chesapeake, Robert served as a pastor in New Mexico, Alaska and Nebraska. He also served as an adjunct professor at Union College (Neb.) and other institutions, as well as a conference youth director in Bolivia.
Robert and his wife, Velia (pictured), arrived in Chesapeake in 2012, where they have served at the Westminster (Md.) church for the past eight years. Robert and Velia plan on remaining in the Maryland area to spend more quality time with family. Robert also plans to continue to conduct Bible studies, which is one of the joys of his life.
“Pastor Martinez is a humble man,” says Eli Rojas, ministerial director for the Chesapeake Conference. “He’s had a rich ministry experience in the United States and overseas in the mission field. We are thankful for his years of service, and we’re going to miss him as part of our ministerial team.”
