Marco Hernandez

Creative Arts Pastor

I enjoy helping people connect with God and draw closer to Him through various expressions of the creative arts. I’m blessed to be able to use my skill set in this capacity on a daily basis.

Favorite Things/Hobbies

I love being in and close to nature and I can’t live without creating and seeing art. Visiting museums and galleries are a big inspiration for me.

About Me

I’m a Bronx, NY native who now lives in northwestern New Jersey. I completed my undergraduate studies at Parsons School of Design (NY) and received my MFA from Azusa Pacific University in California. As a professional artist, I’ve worked at The American Museum of Natural History and the Staten Island Children’s Museum in New York. I started Creative Lab Consulting in 2016 and have provided creative consulting for Rutgers University (NJ) and the Bronx Children’s Museum. I’m also an adjunct professor at Centenary University (NJ).

Family Life

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart Michele for more than 25 years and we have four children: Nathaniel, Joseph, Silas, and Abigail. We love being close to nature and enjoy learning from what God has created.

Favorite Scripture

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2
