Heriberto “Hery” Alonso is an ordained minister, author, evangelist, inspirational speaker, and life-coach (health-mind-relationships). He is a graduate of Alpha & Omega Bible Institute and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Florida International University. Hery says his parents were very instrumental in bringing him into the ways of the Lord.
When he was nine years old, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized seven years later. During his 20s, Hery went through a 12-year period of backsliding and spiritual disconnect. He says it was this separation from God that caused him a lot of unnecessary turmoil and lack of peace. After repenting, he re-dedicated his life to Christ and returned to the ways of the Lord at the age of 34. However, he admits that he still wasn’t totally surrendered which caused him to continue to experience much frustration and failures until years later when he finally decided to be completely ALL IN.
In 2004, Hery began conducting and teaching Bible studies from the living room of his home. Today, his teachings have elevated to what is now RiseUp Outreach Center, a church in Miami, Florida. Services are held on Thursday evenings and also are broadcasted live to a national and international audience with hundreds of viewers. He’s also a voice on Christian radio LifeFM (90.9FM) Monday-Friday. He teaches his listeners, viewers, and readers to focus on two particular scriptures: 2Thessalonians 3:13 – “Don’t ever get tired of doing what is right” and 1Peter 5:8 – “Be well-balanced, be vigilant and cautious at all times.”
His first book, titled ‘Blessed, Balanced & Complete,’ is based on his own life experiences as well as Bible teachings and is available in Spanish and English. His second book, titled ‘…I’m ALL In!,’ is based on experiences, revelations, and applied knowledge (wisdom) that has helped him and others live a totally surrendered life to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a minister, he speaks at various churches and institutions on topics such as Kingdom Principles; Health and Fitness; Relationships; Motivation for Success; Healing the Soul from Past Experiences; and Prioritization and Balance of Life. Hery says that ever since God called him into full-time ministry, he has wholeheartedly embraced his purpose with joy and utmost passion. He currently resides in Miami with his wife, Sandra, and their three children.
