26 years ago, Pastors Ricky and Yvette Gallinar, gave their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ on an Easter Sunday morning service. Since then, the Lord placed a burden in their heart to come into the ministry full time. After working in the ministry part time for a number of years, Pastor Ricky left his full time employment and stepped out in faith into full time ministry. Five years later, Vida Nueva Christian Ministries in Miami Springs, FL was birthed.
Pastor Ricky is a dynamic preacher whose desire is to touch people’s lives for the kingdom of God! Pastor Ricky is the Hispanic Bishop under Hope Ministries International Inc. Both he and his wife have traveled to Peru and Venezuela on missions trips in order to reach the lost for Christ. He and his wife are licensed and ordained with Hope International Inc. Pastor Ricky is joined together with Pastors in Dade County, “Pastores del Reino”, where weekly radio programs are broadcast live.
Pastor Yvette also joins with women Pastors in the Dade County area, where weekly radio programs are broadcast live. This has created a much needed unity in the body of Christ. They hold several events throughout the community together with many Pastors to penetrate the darkness with the light of Christ.
Pastors Ricky and Yvette are members of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). Their ministry also includes counseling couples and families. Their desire is to help other people excel and to unite the world under the banner of Jesus Christ to win the lost, heal the hurting, restore those that have fallen and minister the infallible Word of God!
