From the first time she read in Romans 12:4-7, “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching”, Isabel Contreras has focused on utilizing her teaching skills to serve others.
Contreras, a native of New York City, has served the Calvary fellowship for seven years. She is currently the Chairwoman of Calvary’s Council of Missions.
Contreras earned her Bachelor of Arts in Speech Language Pathology from Brooklyn College and a Master of Arts in Speech Language Pathology from New York University. Over the years she has used her training to serve Calvary’s Reading Achievement Phonics Program (RAPP), a ministry to children grades K-4 where God’s word is used to teach children to read and write.
Contreras takes great joy in being part of church that is making strides in realizing God’s command to go out to the world and proclaim the Gospel.
In her spare time, Contreras enjoys reading, traveling, studying history, and visiting cultural attractions.
