Eduardo Del Valle

Embrace Pastor

Eduardo was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. He got interested in the military following his father’s stories and experience during WWII with the US Army, and joined the Civil Air Patrol Aux of the US Air Force. He was accepted in the University of Puerto Rico and was a P.E. Major. He decided to join the US Coast Guard back in the mid 80’s. It was during the time in college that Eduardo committed his life to Christ. Even though he has always believed in the existence of God, he rarely went to church during his youth. He was born again on October 16th, 1983 during his second year of college. During the last years of service Eduardo was stationed on a Coast Guard Air Base in Puerto Rico where he flew C-130 as aircrew and drop master.

Eduardo’ s experience as a church leader started back in the early 90’s upon his return to college. He became a small group leader, small group’s zone supervisor, church Elder, youth pastor, and eventually became the evangelist of the church. He also became the co-founder/school principal of a K-12 School based on his church’s facilities at that time, after having taught in public school as an English teacher for 3 years. He later went to graduate school and finished a masters of arts in school psychology, and completed a year-long internship in Prince Georges County Public Schools. He also had plenty of experience in clinical settings while in Puerto Rico.

Eduardo currently works at a public school from the District of Columbia Public Schools and currently in his 10th year of service at Powell Elementary, and work as a counselor. He also serves as a locally-licensed minister at Calvary Church of Annandale. He has been at Calvary for 11 years, and currently lead the teens and the men of the church meetings.

His mission is to share the love of Christ with as many people as possible.
