Hello! I'm Carlos Ramírez and I am the Sr. Minister at Putnam City United Methodist Church. I grew up in Puebla, Mexico and in late 2004 I moved to the United States. I married Wendi Neal (also a minister) and we have two wonderful children: Miguel and Citlali. God has called me to build bridges between people. I grew up in a mixed Roman Catholic-Methodist family and now my family is also mixed with our different language and cultural traditions. In all the experiences I have where there is clear differences (in culture, language, socio-ecnomic status, nationality, etc.), I have come to realize that God's power manifest powerfully when we can build relationships amid our differences. We live in a world that seems to be reacting against differences and trying to close down into "in groups." Yet, I believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ invites us all to love and accept others regardless of where they come from, the color of their skin, their socio-economic background, or any other barrier we create. At Putnam City UMC, we are intentionally dedicated to welcome all people and to create genuine and long lasting relationships. We all have different backgrounds but amid our differences we love and care for each other. If you are looking for a place where you can be who God has called you to be and you can also love and affirm others, Putnam City UMC is waiting for you. I look forward meeting you!
