Claudio Consuegra joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1976. At Columbia Union College (now Washington Adventist University) in Maryland, he met and married Pamela (née Napier), the associate director of the Family Ministries Department for the North American Division. Prior to being elected Family Ministries director for the NAD, Claudio served as the director for the Ministerial, Evangelism, Communication, Ethnic Ministries, and Family Ministries departments, as well as the vice president of administration for the Minnesota Conference. For three years, he and Pam hosted a national call-in talk show on LifeTalk Radio.

During his career as a pastor, Claudio has been a law enforcement chaplain (CMC) and critical stress management specialist. After the 9/11 attack, he was deployed at Ground Zero; he also served after the 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse.

Claudio holds a bachelor’s degree in theology from Columbia Union College, a master’s degree in counseling psychology with an emphasis in marriage and family counseling from Radford University, and a Doctor of Ministry degree with an emphasis in family ministries from Andrews University.

He and Pamela have been married for more than 35 years and have two daughters, Diana and Hadassah, and sons-in-law, Greggory and Andrew, respectively.

Daily Disciples

Are you eager to grow in relationship with Jesus and others?  Are you yearning for authentic intergenerational fellowship for all ages?  Join Pastors Ted and Sandra Deer as they host a team of different presenters each day in an exciting and interactive meeting every morning.  You will learn practical principles in how to live daily as a disciple of Jesus.  There will be worship time, sharing time, lesson time, and a daily challenge to put to use what you learn!  Our time together will be reminiscent of the early Christian Church when truly it was found to be ‘Stronger Together’!

Prayer Ministries Daily Prayer Hour

Talking with the Lord, daily, Saturday to Saturday 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM, and Monday – Friday 12:00 PM (noon) – 12:30 PM. We are stronger together, with each other, and most importantly with the Lord.  Being with the Lord in prayer helps us get things in perspective, be filled with peace that is beyond understanding, and have strength to face the day.  Please join us in our live zoom meetings to share God Sightings, encourage one another, share requests, and seek the Lord in prayer.
