Pastor Joe and Erna Cordeiro

Pastor Joe

Tell us a little bit about your family, your ministry life (school and positions held) and what you like best about ministry.

My wife Erna and I have been married for 13 yrs. We have a beautiful blended family of 3 son’s Matthew, Derek, Joseph, and 3 daughter’s Rona, Janelle and Robyn. We have been blessed with 4 grandchildren Malachi, Caleb, Izayah and Penelope Blair. Erna and I truly cherish family and sharing time together.

I’ve held credentials through the AG since 2013 and recently we co-directed Celebrate Recovery in Carson City, NV for over 5 years in which I was the Northern Nevada State Rep. for CR for 2 of those years. Moving to Sparks mid 2016 and partnering with our NLCC family has truly blessed our lives and have served where ever necessary in accomplishing the vision here at NLCC and have taken the call as Connect Ministry pastor.
