Carlos Madrazo retires from global service

Carlos Madrazo, Jr., received expressions of appreciation from Global Ministries Committee co-chair, Marvin Eckfeldt at a recent gathering in Seattle.

That committee of the PNC of the United Church of Christ and the Northwest Region of The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) acknowledged and gave thanks for Carlos’ life-long ministry as he returned from his recent Global Missions assignment with the Protestant Church of East Timor and retired.  While in the states, he was hospitalized with a heart condition, which required open-heart surgery.

Carlos began his service in 1958 and has done work in agricultural outreach, community development, served as a university professor and as consultant for church resource and management. 

His 55 years of service have taken him to Nepal, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Indonesia and East Timor.

He and his late wife, Silversity, who died while he was in East Timor, also served a term as interim directors of the Yakama Indian Mission (Disciples of Christ) in Washington.  

Carlos, a member at Bethany UCC in Seattle, has been a Global Mission Partner of the Northwest conference and region for 11 years.
