Efrain was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and raised in the Bronx, NY. His wife Megan was born and raised in Pennsylvania. The two met in college, where they both gave their lives over to the Lord.
God began to stir a passion and desire in Efrain to enter into full-time ministry. After several years of schooling and mentoring, God opened a door in Kilgore, TX at Crosspoint Church. Efrain and Megan made the radical decision to quit their lucrative jobs, move halfway across the country with their little ones, and serve God in Texas.
After dedicating 8 years as the Senior Pastor in Kilgore, God called both Efrain and Megan to Conroe to plant a gospel-centered multiplying church. Through partnerships with Houston Church Planting Network, Stadia, Texas Ministries of the Church of God, and other partnering churches, Merge Church was planted. Their first service welcomed over 400 people. Efrain has a passion to equip the local church and see it thrive.
They currently live in Conroe with their three children Grace, Josiah, and Anna.
