About our Pastor

3rd March 2011 by DeborahBarrow

The Rev. Luis R. Perez is the 33rd pastor of the Rhinebeck Reformed Church.

Since his arrival in 2003, the congregation has experienced a period of spiritual rebirth as evidenced by annual double-digit membership growth and the creation of dynamic outreach and spiritual development programs, such as the co founding of a lay hospital visitation program, a summer speaker series, and the co-development of youth mission projects, among other initiatives.

Pastor Luis stands on the rooftop of an artisan in Bethlehem. In the backdrop is the iconic Church of the Nativity, the site where arguably Jesus was born.

The Rev. Perez was trained at the Yale Divinity School, where he earned a Yale President’s Public Service Fellowship, and he studies journalism at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where he received a fellowship as part of a workshop to write about religion in Israel and Gaza.
