Guillermo Maldonado is a co-founder and senior pastor of El Rey Jesús (anglicized as King Jesus Ministry), a Christian apostolic and prophetic church located in Miami, Florida, and an author.[1]

History and ministry[edit]

Maldonado is the co-founder and Sr. Pastor of King Jesus Ministry (El Rey Jesús). In an interview conducted by Publishers Weekly, Maldonado stated that Christ appeared before him during intense prayer and audibly spoke to him saying, "I have called you to bring my supernatural power to this generation." He started a church with twelve members in 1996.[2] He has written over 50 books and manuals which many of them have been translated into Spanish, English, Portuguese, Italian, and French. Maldonado also preaches what he sees as the message of Jesus and his redemptive power on Maldonado's international television program The Supernatural Now, which is aired on TBN,[3][failed verification] Daystar,[4][failed verification] and The Church Channel.[5][failed verification] As of May 22, 2013, his ministry, along with other of his affiliated daughter churches, have a combined membership of 20,000 congregants.[2]

Maldonado teaches that Christian believers need to use the power of God to demonstrate that God is active in the world today just as he was during the time of the primitive church. He believes that without the supernatural power of God, it is impossible to truly know God and receive His blessings of healing, wealth, deliverance, among others in our life. His teachings also focus on establishing what he calls the Kingdom of God. He explains that the Kingdom of God is not a physical place, but a network of thoughts, lifestyle, principles, laws and fundamentals that govern the entire universe.[6] He currently resides in Miami, Florida, with his family.

Community involvement[edit]

Maldonado led the opening prayer of the US House of Representatives October 14, 2009 and October 10, 2013.[7][8]

Maldonado was invited to the White House to witness the signing of an executive order promoting free speech and religious liberty.[9]

Views on coronavirus[edit]

Disregarding the coronavirus pandemic, Maldonado urged his congregants to show up for worship services in person. "Do you believe God would bring his people to his house to be contagious with the virus? Of course not," he said.[10] He added, "If we die, we die for Christ. If we live, we live for Christ, so what do you lose?"[11]

Maldonado has discouraged taking vaccine against Covid-19: "Do not [take] the vaccine. Believe in the blood of Jesus. Believe in divine immunity." [12]
