Nathan Carrington
Nathan Carrington

Pastor

Born in Dumas, TX, Nathan Carrington has been privileged to call the Texas Panhandle home for his entire life. He was blessed to be raised in a minister’s home by a mother and father who were faithful and committed Christians. David and Gloria Carrington pastored the Dumas United Pentecostal Church for 38 years, laying a solid foundation for Pastor Carrington’s faith.

After graduation from Dumas High School, Nathan attended West Texas A&M University, in Canyon, TX, where he obtained a business degree. It was also during his years as a student there that he became a part of the Jubilee Apostolic Church family. 

In 1994, Nathan began to learn and grow from the mentorship of our late Pastor, Royce Elms. Over the next several years, Pastor Carrington began to mature in God, in leadership, and in ministry. Over the next 17 years, he served as our local Youth Pastor, Sectional Youth Leader for the Texas Panhandle, and went on to lead as District Youth Secretary and Youth President for all of New Mexico and West Texas. Much of who he is today came from the guidance he gained from his mentors and his ministry opportunities. In 2010, Pastor Elms went on to be with the Lord, but not before leaving an indelible imprint on the man who would assume the role as “shepherd” of our flock.

Pastor Carrington feels like his greatest blessings in life, after his relationship with the Lord, are his wife (Rolonda) of over 20 years, and his three daughters (Nataley, Ramah & Hannah). He is also very blessed to be an ordained minister with the United Pentecostal Church International, where he has held a license for over a decade. He also loves to call Jubilee Apostolic Church "his" church family, because it is a great place to belong. He loves serving this great congregation, and he loves being able to share the good news of the Gospel with the city of Amarillo. Pastor Carrington is convinced that God has a great revival in store for Amarillo, and that He has “much people in this city”(Acts 18:10).

Music Ministry and Children's Ministry Director

Our First Lady, Rolonda Carrington, has lived in Amarillo, TX all of her life. She has a wonderful husband, Nathan Carrington and is blessed with three amazing daughters, Nataley, Ramah, and Hannah. Her parents, whom she dearly loves, Royce and Annette Elms pastored in Amarillo for 40 years, at Jubilee Apostolic Church, until the passing of her father in 2010. Since that time, Nathan and Rolonda have been privileged to pastor the same wonderful church. She stays busy with many duties, which include being a mother, a home-school teacher, Pastor’s wife, music director, and children’s ministry director. Children’s ministry is a particular passion for her, and God has allowed her to minister in that realm in churches, rally’s, and crusades in Texas and New Mexico. Rolonda was raised in a minister’s home and was taught the value of serving God in any capacity that God calls you to serve.

Hyphen Pastors

Aaron was born and raised in Colorado, and is now excited to call Amarillo, Texas his home. He was raised in an Apostolic minster's home, and has served God in many different capacities. Being a passionate worshipper, he enjoys singing, playing the keyboard, and anything that involves glorifying God.

Dana Gurule was born and raised in Amarillo, but at the age of 13 her dad, a Baptist minister, was called to Trinidad, Colorado to serve as pastor. There she met her husband, Aaron Gurule, who opened the doors of the truth of God’s Word and the great gift of the Holy Ghost to her. Dana was baptized in the only saving name of Jesus in August of 1996, and since has served with her husband in various areas: Sunday School Teacher, Church Treasurer, Assistant Pastor’s wife, and as Pastor’s wife for a period of time.

The Gurule's have three beautiful children; Danae’, Jaden, and Hannah. God moved the Gurule family to Amarillo in 2011, where they found Jubilee Apostolic Church and knew it was "home" the first time they visited. In 2014, the Gurule's agreed to serve as Youth Pastors, where they enjoyed seeing the stages of blessing and growth in the youth of Jubilee. In 2018, the Gurule's accepted Pastor Carrington's request to assume the helm as Hyphen Pastors, where they now lead the great group of young adults who call Jubilee "home".

“I am humbled and honored to serve such a great group of young adults, and encourage all to come and connect with God, with People, and with Purpose.” -Bro. Aaron Gurule

Victor Pimentel
Victor Pimentel

Youth Pastor

Victor Pimentel was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He attended an Apostolic Church there, as a child, but left the church at age 15. Over the next several years he struggled with alcohol, drugs, and thoughts of suicide. But, in 2014, he made his way back to God, at Jubilee Apostolic Church, where he found that God still loves prodigals! 

Victor is so thankful for what God has done in his life, over the last few years. In his own words... “I was a very sinful person who was lost and broken. The Lord saw fit to bring me into His Kingdom. His mercy drew me in, and His grace has kept me here.  I have now been clean from all addictions since 2014, praise the LORD! I have no desire to go back!”

Victor has found that the best life to live is one that is lived for the Lord. His passion, now, is helping young people grow in their relationship with God, and remain strong in their faith through the teenage years. His passion for God and souls is inspiring to all who know him. Under his leadership, there is a thriving group of passionate worshippers called "FUSION YOUTH".

Priscilla Loden
Priscilla Loden

Pillar's Ministry Director

Priscilla Loden has been in the church for 50 years, and counts the deep friendships that she has, within the church, as some of her greatest blessings. There have been many times when the love and prayers of fellow-believers have seen her through hard trials. When she has felt overwhelmed, she has learned that she can find peace and joy in the house of the Lord.

Sister Loden's passion in ministry is for the elders of the congregation. At Jubilee, they are called PILLARS, as they are such a strength and support to the church structure. She coordinates monthly events designed to strengthen friendships among the more experienced members of the community. If you are over 55 years of age, and need a place to belong, The Pillars would love to welcome you! They meet the first Saturday of each month, unless otherwise announced, and they play games, they laugh, and very often they eat. Several times each year, the event has more than a snack; more like a full meal. Most importantly, they build friendships to dispell the enemies of lonliness and discouragement so common at this season of life.

Marshall Rankin

Ministry Development

Born in Amarillo, Marshall grew up attending Jubilee, and got his start in ministry under the guidance of Pastor Nathan Carrington. At age 20, he moved to Albuquerque, NM, to serve as student pastor at a church there. During his five years in Albuquerque, he developed a strong passion for helping others take there first steps in ministry, just as he was helped earlier in his life. He developed curricula and techniques to aid others in learning how to develop sermons, preach in public venues, and teach the Word of God in an applicable and effective manner. Marshall is humbled and excited to serve God and Jubilee Apostolic Church by helping others develop their ministries.

Veronica Lopez
Veronica Lopez

Head Hostess

Veronica Lopez' is the smiling face that often greets members and guests at the front door.  She is delighted to welcome everyone to Jubilee, because it wasn't long ago that she was welcomed here for the first time. It was in 2013 when she first visited this church, and when she came she really needed a loving place to receive her and her family. She found this at Jubilee Apostolic Church. She recalls walking into the foyer, where she was greeted, and was so relieved that no one looked down on her. It wouldn't be long before God delivered her from an alcohol addiction, and set her life on course for Heaven. In her words, "It was the best decision ever!"

Veronica loves this church, not only for the love she feels from the church family, but because of what is taught to her and her family. When she started searching for a church, she began praying for a place where her family could develop a deep, personal relationship with God. She desired a church where the preaching was Bible-based, and not story-centered. She found everything she desired at Jubilee. She rejoices that God also blessed her with a spiritual family, which she desperately needed, as she had recently moved away from much of her natural family. 

Over the past few years, Veronica has watched her children grow and flourish in their faith, even as she has. If you wonder why she smiles, as she welcomes people to Jubilee...it's because she knows that what God has done for her, He can do for anyone.
