Hector Villanueva
Lead Pastor

I grew up in the community of Mercedes and I love serving this area through ministry. I am married to the love of my life, Mari, and we have been married for 29 years. Together we have served in youth ministry. I was recently the Executive Pastor here at Rio Life as well as leading a church planting team. I love to fish, hunt, work-out, and I have a passion for BBQ. Mari and I have 8 dogs together. I’m an average guy that loves Jesus and people. My desire is for Rio Life to live this out where we live, work, and play.
