I am Pastor Ramon G. Jose; better known as Pastor Chito. I have lived in Lakeland, Florida since October 2004. I am married to Carmela Jose and have one beautiful daughter Sam Angela Jose.
I was ordained, appointed, and given the mandate with great responsibility to be the Senior Pastor of Christian World Ministries, Florida.
I got saved in the year 1981 and was privileged to be a part of the different ministries in the Charismatic Ecumenical Ministries International (CEMI) in the Philippines under the leadership of Bishop Jesse Candelaria; whom I recognized as my spiritual father. I was given the opportunity to serve under the following ministries: Praise and Worship, Sound Technician, Evangelistic Crusade Team and Church Maintenance Team as my service and gratitude to God.
As the years went by, I felt a strong and deep sense of urgency to serve God in a higher level of calling/ministry. And started attending many short courses ranging from 3 to 6 months in Basic Evangelism, Leadership Training, Missionary Training, and other equipping courses that I believe it is crucial and that all Believers should be equipped and well prepared for reaching out and in fulfilling the Great Commission as it is written in Matthew 28:19-20.
I was given the privilege to go to two Bible Seminaries. First was the Antioch Bible Seminar headed by Pastor Baker, Missionary from the United States but was only able to stay in that Seminary for six months due to conflict of schedules. But Praise God! If God calls you, He will make a way. Yes indeed, He did made a way to finished and earned my Degree in Pastoral Ministry which I took for two years under the Ministry of our mother church in Caloocan, Philippines headed by Reverend Edilberto Samson who was the younger brother of our founding mother of Christian World Ministries here in Florida (CWMFL) Pastor Luisa Gutierrez; in which she serves as an Associate Pastor along with Pastor Raul Boyd; which they themselves lead many parts of our ministerial departments and support to the Senior Pastor.
I thank God that we are being acknowledged for our warm-heartedness, hospitality, and family-oriented atmosphere. On December 11, 2016, we celebrated our 9th year Anniversary as a church. This was only made possible by our faithful and committed people who served with us in whatever capacity they have.
God is looking for more workers because of the precious souls that are ready to harvest. And we welcome anyone who is willing to work and labor with us for the glory of God.
