Rev. Vizcarrondo was born in Santurce, P.R. and raised in Carolina, P.R. During his childhood, he dedicated his time and self to sports, mainly baseball. During this period, he traveled all over different cities in P.R., won championships, titles, and represented P.R. in this sport. Baseball helped him stay away from drugs, develop leadership skills, and much more. During his last year of high school, from 1978-1979, he accepted Jesus as his savior and dedicated his life to following Jesus. He has been with the same church organization from which he accepted Jesus into his life, since 1978.
After high school graduation in 1979, he started studying at the Inter-American University from P.R. (main campus) in which he graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor in Arts with two degrees, accounting, and management. Most of his initial spiritual formation was learned during this time. He was also honored to preside over the “Asociacion Cristiana Universitaria” (ACU) during his last year of college (1982-1983).
On July 19, 1987, God opened the doors for him to travel to Cleveland, Ohio and plant a church with the same organization. He was ordained as a minister in June 1987 in Rio Piedras, P.R. In March 1989, he married his lovely wife Regina M. Diaz in her hometown of Bethlehem, P.A. He has two kids, Luis R. Jr. and Natalie M, and has been blessed with four grandkids, Aydenn, Aidanesse, Avenn, and Aaliyah.
In 1988, he started working for the Ohio Department of Taxation as an auditor in the sales and use tax, audit division. In 2001, he was certified as a Microsoft Office Master trainer and currently supports the audit division in computer applications with training and some special projects.
In 2012, he obtained a diploma in Theology of Hispanic Studies from Ashland Theological Seminary, offered through the Galilean Theological Center in Cleveland, Ohio. It was during these studies that his life changed and found a new purpose in ministry for education. He continued his theological studies at Indiana Wesleyan University, where he completed a Masters of Divinity on April 30, 2016.
He is a bi-vocational pastor of the same church he started in Cleveland, Ohio since 1987. As a pastor, he has been involved with the community, city council and the mayor to assist and improve his communities.
