New Season Christian Worship Center
Samuel Rodriguez lives for the purpose of reconciling the vertical and horizontal elements of the Christian message; sanctification with service, righteousness with justice, truth with love, the image of God with the habits of Christ, orthodoxy with orthopraxy, faith with fruit, rhetoric with action, conviction with compassion and holiness with humility. Born to bible believing parents who migrated from Puerto Rico, Rodriguez grew with a strong affinity towards mathematics. A self described evangelical trekkie, Rodriguez also grew inspired by Billy Graham and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His ministry career began at the age of 14 with great God ordained favor catapulting him as one of the preeminent speakers of his generation by the age of 20. Rev. Dr. Samuel Rodriguez founded New Season Christian Worship Center on September 12, 2010. After preaching at The Potter’s House with Bishop TD Jakes the previous month, Pastor Rodriguez felt led by the Holy Spirit to plant a Christ-centered, bible-based, Spirit-empowered, multi-ethnic, trans-generational congregation in the capitol city of America’s largest state, Sacramento, California.
In addition, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez serves as the President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC)/CONEL, the World’s largest Hispanic Christian organization representing millions of born again Christ followers via 40,118 certified member churches while serving over 450,000 churches globally.
He earned his Master’s degree in educational leadership from Lehigh University and most recently received an Honorary Doctorates from The Baptist Universities of The Americas and Northwest University. He is an Assemblies of God Ordained Minister since the age of 23. He resides in Sacramento with his wife of 26 years, Eva, and their three children, and two grand-children.
