Relevant Church Miami is excited to announce that after months of prayer and seeking guidance, God has led us to present Pastor Etni Prieto as Lead Pastor of our Church. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate with us Sunday October 2nd, for a special installation service at 10:00 a.m. Pastor Etni was recommended by the Pastor Search Committee and overwhelmingly elected as Lead Pastor by the congregation during a meeting held on August 28th.
Pastor Etni and his family are originally from South Florida and recently moved back to Miami in 2014. Pastor Prieto has ministry experience dating back to 1994 and has served churches in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Texas.
Pastor Etni received his Bachelor of Arts in Theology from The Baptist College of Florida. He received his Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Ministry with Biblical Languages from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He is also currently working on his Doctor of Education degree.
In his calling as Lead Pastor of Relevant Church Miami his heart is to impact our city with the Gospel of Christ. His focus is strong Biblical teaching, deep real-life discipleship, and effective missions. He brings an understanding that church is not an event but a lifestyle that brings hope to a lost world. He believes churches are sacrificing substance for style in order to attract people. As he states, “style and substance are not mutually exclusive, we can do both. We need to be inviting and amazing in our worship as well as profound in our teaching of God’s word. We need to not only bring people to Christ but guide them to grow in Christ.”
Pastor Etni and his wife, Maday, have been married for 22 years and are parents to five children Matthew (18), Kristen (16), Stephen (14), Jocelyn (5), and Zachary (3).
The installation service will take place during our Sunday service on October 2nd at 10:00 am at 3195 W 7th Ave, Hialeah FL 33012. Everyone is welcome to come celebrate Christ, and officially welcome Pastor Etni and his Family in this new beginning for Relevant Church Miami!
