Rojas to Assume New Post;
Begins New Ministry
Jose Vicente Rojas will be leaving the North American Division (NAD) on December 31 to assume a new role. He will launch a new ministry titled, “MOVEmentum.” Under his leadership of MOVEmentum, Rojas will conduct evangelistic meetings and speak for many Adventist events, provide consulting services to assist denominational leaders and organizations in strategic planning and implementation, as well as provide leadership training and consulting services to international governments and corporations within the context of Adventist values.
Elder Rojas began working for the North American Division in 1994 as the youth and young adult ministries director, a position he held until the year 2000. Since then, he has been the director of the Office of Volunteer Ministries which oversees all Division volunteer missions programs including student and taskforce missions, tutoring and mentoring sites, short-term mission groups and a host of networked outreach ministries across North America.
While working as the youth director at the Division, Rojas also worked from 1996 until 2000 at the United States White House, assisting the Bill Clinton administration in many humanitarian issues and legislative initiatives. He also served with General Colin Powell in the launch of America's Promise: The Alliance for Youth, which has led to large-scale participation of volunteers serving at-risk youth in their local communities.
“Jose has been very instrumental in empowering men and women to fulfill their calling in life,” said Elder Dan Jackson, NAD president. “His deep passion for young adult and volunteer ministries is evident and has been felt across the Division and seen in the rich legacy he has established.”
