Chance Martinez-Colon

Seminary Intern

 

Chance is a student at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities where he is seeking his Master of Divinity in UCC Studies. He also serves on the Student Leadership Collective and the Seminary Council. Chance is a Medical Social Worker at Morton Plant Hospital and is the supervisor for a team of 55 people. He is also active in the Florida Conference of the UCC where he currently serves on the personnel committee. Prior to moving to Florida almost 5 years ago, Chance and Enrique lived in South Carolina.

Originally from Alabama, Chance has been active in ministry for as long as he can remember. He preached his first sermon when he was 10 years old. He is adopted, and while both of his parents are deceased, the lessons that they taught him about love and justice stay with him even to this day.

In his free time, he enjoys travelling and just experiencing life with his husband, Enrique, and their Golden Retriever (Frodo) and their cat (Avery). He also enjoys the various opportunities that he has to provide pulpit supply at local congregations.

Chance is passionate about justice and social transformation work and the ministries of Good Samaritan Church were what excited him the most about his internship. He is looking forward to getting plugged in and getting ready to work alongside all of you at Good Samaritan Church.
