Pastor Roman Gutierrez was born and raised on the west side of San Antonio. By the age of 13, he was a frequent drug user, involved in gangs and violence, attempted suicide, and incarcerated numerous times. By age 15, Roman was involved in a fight which resulted in Roman being pronounced dead for six minutes. At 19, Roman was stabbed by his best friend and was pronounced dead for the second time in his life, this time for over five minutes. But at age 25 he walked into a church service and gave his life to Jesus Christ.
Pastor Roman Gutierrez has faithfully served as a pioneer pastor at The Door Christian Church in Victoria, TX. Then stepped into the role of an evangelist and as of today has visited over 42 different nations all around the world. His testimony has made an unimaginable impact on the youth of today. He has been a guest speaker in many junior highs, high schools, universities, and youth centers.
During the South Texas Bible Conference of San Antonio, Texas Pastor Roman and his wife placed the role of an Evangelist aside and answered the call to be missionaries and were launched into the nation of La Paz, Bolivia. As of today that church “La Puerta” is still growing and reaching the many lost souls of La Paz, Bolivia.
Once they returned from the mission field Pastor Roman assumes the pastorate of The Door Church of San Marcos, Texas from 2008 – 2011. In January 2012 Pastor Roman and his family once again answer the call and came to The Door CFM of McAllen, Texas where he currently serves as Senior Pastor. The Door CFM and Pastor Roman have a driving passion to win the lost through discipleship and church planting.
