Pastor Hector Vega was raised in midtown Manhattan where his drug addiction and dysfunction ruled 15 years of his life. He spent 10 of them in and out of the prison system until he was radically saved in 1995. It was the unconditional love of God in the Gospel message that transformed him.
Since being rescued, Pastor Hector has served on international mission trips and most recently was the Executive Director & CEO of the Goodwill Rescue Mission in Newark, New Jersey. He’s led East Harlem Fellowship since 2009 alongside his wife Michelle. They have four children: Nicholas, Josiah, Seth and Skyler.
Pastor Hector recently released his biography, “Arrested by Grace” (Freiling Agency, December 2018) to share his story of hope. It presents the full gospel as the missing ingredient for true freedom in our nation. Opioid addiction, a growing prison population and a national discussion about criminal justice reform, all find parallels in “Arrested by Grace.” His current work is to send the book into every prison in the United States (ABG prison project). In upper Manhattan, New York where East Harlem Fellowship serves, the doors of Lex Hill have opened as a community educational facility, Youth Intervention & social enterprise center. In La Perla, Puerto Rico a long-term missions poverty solution project is underway as well as The Arrested By Grace Prison Freedom project where he is sending the book into every jail at not cost to chaplain and or inmates.
