Having been raised in a Catholic home, Carlos had his own personal encounter with the Lord when he was 19 years of age. Carlos’ experience happened in Mt. Vernon, NY, at a small bilingual nondenominational church. They gave Carlos the nick-name El Cantante de Jehovah (The Singer of Jehovah). It was then that God called Carlos to serve Him through song.
Carlos has been singing as long as he can remember. At 5 years old, he started singing at Friday night tea parties at the request of his mom and her friends. There, Carlos learned the emotions of singing secular love songs. However, after his encounter with the Lord, he combined his love for singing with his love of worshiping God. Carlos is also an accomplished drummer, having played with a number of Christian bands. There were trials and tribulations that attacked his faith – even deciding which music to perform: secular or Christian music. When Carlos surrendered his life completely to his Lord and Savior, he began the slow but firm resolve to die to himself, presenting his body as a living sacrifice to the Lord. As we read in Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Messiah; and it is no longer I who live, but Messiah lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
Carlos' vision is to bring fellowship to the body of Messiah through worshiping and entering into the presence of God. Worship brings people into unity. Once we are in the presence of God, The Holy Spirit will minister according to His will. As Carlos' bio reads, "I want to be in the presence of the Lord and experience healing for the sick and freedom for the captives. I am asking the Ruach ha Kodesh (The Holy Spirit) for a mighty rushing wind to come and take over our meetings."
Carlos currently attends Messianic Congregation Shoresh David in Tampa, FL. You can visit Carlos Perdomo at https://www.psalmplace.com/carlosperdomo.
