Board members

Antonio Reyes
Lead IT Facilitator, Encounter Church Orlando

I am originally from Hartford, Connecticut, but I have been a Floridian for 25 years now. I am a graduate from Morgan G. Bulkeley High School of Hartford, CT. and I gave my life to Jesus in April 2002. I was a member of the Pine Castle United Methodist Church Choir from 2002 to 2008, and I moved with my Senior Pastor Blake Lorenz to start Encounter Global Outreach, and I have actively served in the IT and media department at the church ever since. In 2010 I ran for the Connecticut State House, and have remained involved politically in the Central Florida region. In 2014 I launched the Pray for our Leaders event series which comprises of hosting special services to pray for candidates and elected officials, regardless of background or political affiliation. It is the proudest achievement of my life, to pray for all these people and remind our officials that Jesus is with them, and this movement is expanding rapidly. God blessed me in 2017 to become married to my beautiful wife Mariana, who is from Mead, Colorado.

Bio coming soon

 

Sam Whitaker
Facilities Manager, Lake Mary Church

I am a New Jersey native and a Florida resident since 1984. My vast experiences and God given skills began as a kid, learning from my Father and Grandfather. I graduated from Deland High School and attended trade school for machining. Printing, printing press repair, lawn & irrigation, machinist, construction foreman, roofing, car repair, and all around project design are some of my areas of expertise. I enjoy the challenge of finding a way to repair, design, or create a way to make something work. In 2019, I was given the opportunity to bring all of these talents, collectively, to serve the Lord as the Director of Facilities at Lake Mary Church. On a personal note, I have been married to my best friend Patty for 34 years and together we spent over 13 years leading Cub and Boy Scouts as well as serving at the churches we have attended. My wife and I have been blessed with two sons, a daughter in law, two grandchildren and several spiritual children/grandchildren. Our family strongly believes in sharing the love of Christ by being His hands and feet, serving others. Co-Laboring for the Kingdom and His glory is an honor!

 

Trevor Jordan
IT Business Relationship Manager, AdventHealth

Born in Illinois and having traveled around the United States and Europe as an Air Force kid, I call Fort Walton Beach, Florida my hometown. After graduating from high school, I attended the University of Central Florida for molecular biology and psychology. I decided to stay in the area after school, getting a job as a medical records administrator for a local neurosurgery office. I then worked as a contractor and consular assistant for the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office, then moved into pharmacy operations management for Walgreens for eight years. I was then lead on the path to AdventHealth where I have performed program management and process improvement since 2017. I am a certified Six Sigma Master Black Belt, Project Management Professional, Pharmacy Technician, Technical Writer and Change Management Professional. I use my education, credentials and skillset to advance AdventHealth’s mission, which is to extend the healing ministry of Christ.

Since moving to Orlando, I have attended Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Winter Park. I met my lovely wife, Nicole, on our first day of classes at UCF, and she and I were married at St. James Cathedral in Orlando in 2012. We have one daughter, Aubrey, who is progressing through the sacraments at Sts. Peter and Paul.

In my free time, I enjoy exercise, sports and cooking. I am a member of my daughter’s elementary school’s Parent Teacher Association board and have had tremendous success as a grant proposal writer and fundraiser. Within AdventHealth I have held several extracurricular positions including Corporate 5K Team Captain, CREATION Life team member and Community Involvement Care Crew Volunteer. I am also a lifelong member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity and held several leadership positions within the organization while at UCF.

With this Board of Directors opportunity, I look to strengthen our community’s capabilities to understand, access and use technology to create a thriving environment for the less fortunate. I truly believe this is what God wants us to do, and I am excited to contribute my time and talents to growing the ministry.
