Born in Peru, Miguel A. Palomino started his ministry in the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA) church of Lima, shortly after earning his college degree in 1977. This church had just launched the “Lima to an Encounter with God” program that became one of the most aggressive evangelistic efforts in the city. In 1982, Palomino was elected the President of the National Evangelical Council of Peru (CONEP), and founded the Peace and Hope Commission in 1984, a human rights branch of CONEP to help those affected by Shining Path guerrilla. In 1997 he was elected the Rector of the newly formed Latin American Graduate School of Theology (FATELA), which now operates in six countries.
From the beginning of his career, Palomino has been involved with pastoral ministry, missions, and theological education. He is constantly lecturing, teaching, and preaching in many countries. He has authored three books and written articles for several journals. In 2005, he was part of the steering committee that organized the Edinburgh World Missionary Conference 2010, and was the Missiologist-in-Residence for the Church Mission Society in Oxford, UK, in 2011. He is the chair of the Alliance World Fellowship International Commission on Theological Education, and one of the founding members of the Alliance Institute for Pastoral Training in Madrid, Spain.
Besides his home country, Palomino has lived in Argentina, Brazil, Scotland, England, and Spain. He, his wife Rose Mary, and their daughter Ana-Claudia reside in Miami where he is the preaching pastor of a CMA congregation in Pembroke Pines. He enjoys music, reading, and traveling.
The title of his dissertation is The Rise and Face of Neopentecostalism: A Descriptive and Comparative Assessment of New Independent Charismatic/Pentecostal Churches in Latin America.
