When he isn't being #1 dad to his amaging kids or Head Music Guy at Chapel Roswell, Arturo organizes and coordinates all aspects of RSM Worship. From the band to the tech, Arturo leads our students to the foot of the cross each and every week.

You can find him and his wife, Amanda (and their whole family), at Chapel Roswell every Sunday morning. And you can find him at "the Dod" every Sunday night leading our students in worship.

In his free time, he loves mountain biking, riding his motorcycle and finding new local restaurants to try every Tuesday at lunch!
