Denomination: Church of God (Cleveland, TN)

Specific Field: Ethics and Social Theory


Daniel was born in Visalia, California to a Mexican mother and a Puerto Rican father. After learning the significance of his own migration story as a second-generation Latino, he became interested in discovering God’s heart for migrants. This influenced his research interests, which include theology, ethics, philosophy, migration, Pentecostalism, and Latine studies. Daniel’s research focuses on constructing a Christian social ethic of migration that can positively and proactively respond to the migration crisis in our modern world. Daniel hopes to serve at the intersection of academia, the church, and the public square to begin to transform the narrative of migration within US society and American evangelicalism.
