Pastor Diego

Pastor Diego Silva, Associate Pastor

Pastor Diego gave his life to Jesus at the age of 16. During his senior year of high school, he sensed that God was leading him to ministry. Through years, his passion for studying and teaching the Bible has grown. During his college years, he met Melissa, a French-Canadian ministerial student who later would become his wife. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in Pastoral Evangelism at Hartland College in 2006. He served as president of Taquara Institute from 2006 to 2013, and as chairman of the Religion Department of Hartland College from 2014 to 2016. He pastored the Miles City and Hardin Seventh-day Adventist churches in Montana from 2016 to 2018 before being called to serve the Chapel Oaks and Lawrence Seventh-day Adventist Churches in Kansas. He and Melissa are currently pursuing an MA in Pastoral Ministry at Andrews University. Their two children, Abigail (5) and Caleb (3) have brought much joy to the Silva home. 

In his spare time, Diego enjoys spending time in nature, reading and traveling with his family.
