The Christian and Missionary Alliance Announces Historic Appointment


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) of the United States is pleased to announce that Rev. Rosilio Román has been appointed to serve as assistant vice president for Multicultural Ministries and Church Multiplication.

“As our congregations are becoming more culturally diverse, so must our national leadership,” said Rev. John Soper, vice president for Church Ministries of the U.S. C&MA. “Ethnic people currently represent about one-third of the population of the United States, and that same percentage is held within the upper leadership of Church Ministries.”

Rev. Román brings more than 25 years of experience to his role at the National Office, having begun his ministry career as a chaplain candidate in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. From 1987 to 1995, he was senior pastor of The Christian and Missionary Alliance Church of Manati-Pueblo in Manati, Puerto Rico, where he led the congregation in a successful church-planting project. He served as church development director as well as district superintendent of the Puerto Rico District of the C&MA.

As national director of U.S.-Hispanic ministries for the Bible League, Rev. Román was responsible for general oversight of Scripture placement programs across the United States, focusing on reaching the U.S. Hispanic population. In this role, he was responsible for opening new regional offices and providing ongoing support to regional teams. In 2009, he assumed the position of senior ministry director of the Bible League’s Latin America and South Asia Ministries.

Rev. Román is a graduate of Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, New York. His responsibilities at the National Office include direct oversight of geographical districts within the U.S. C&MA.

The Alliance is a fellowship of evangelical believers joined together in local churches, dedicated to fulfilling Christ’s command to make disciples of all nations. The Alliance has a thoroughly evangelical doctrinal statement and encourages believers from diverse backgrounds and theological traditions to unite to complete Christ’s Great Commission.
