Pastor Christian (Chris) Carballo is a native of the Mexican Caribbean, born in Chetumal (border city with Belize) but raised in Cancun, Quintana Roo. “Chris” is the second in a family of 3 children, the only boy in his family.

Known as a hard worker, Christian started in the tourism industry at age seventeen, acquiring experience and growth in his career. He attained several positions in the operation of hotels but mainly in the area of sales and marketing, where he has a strong affinity for working with groups, conventions and special events (weddings). He became Vice President of Groups and Incentive Sales for a well known large hotel chain. This required him to move to Miami Florida; taking him away from his family and the church.

Pastor Chris had previously taken the role of preaching Pastor at his church, and after a year of going back and forth from Miami to Playa del Carmen, God made obvious the calling He had given him since an early age. Christian recognized that the most important thing in life is his relationship with God and his family, therefore he quit his job in Miami and returned to Playa del Carmen and became a full time pastor for the church where he was born as a christian.

Today Christian is a full time ordained pastor of Compañerismo de la Riviera Maya. To support his family and church Pastor Christian performs wedding and vow renewal ceremonies from Cancun to Tulum, covering all the Mayan Riviera region.

Christian is married to Abimelec (Aby) Rodriguez, they are the proud parents of Christian Jacob and Madison Abimelec, and live happily in the city of Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo Mexico at His service.
