HIRAM GALVEZ  BIO

Hiram was born in Havana, Cuba, in a pastoral family of the Church of the Nazarene. He began playing the piano and singing at the age of five at his parent's church and started to take piano lessons at the age of eight. As a teenager, he left the church and began to play and sing in nightclubs. Later traveled to Moscow, Russia to study, where he earned a Master of Science degree in Arial-Photogeodesical Engineering. Hiram continued his musical studies and career in Russia, playing and singing in several international competitions and festivals but was not a Christian at that point.

After his return to Cuba from Russia, in 1987, he began to realize that he was living in a spiritual decay that had left him disillusioned and empty. Hiram remembered the reverent fear of the Lord taught to him by his parents at a very young age and he decided to follow their deep desire for him to be a better person. This turning point in Hiram's life allowed him to realize that he couldn't be a better person only fearing the Lord unless he accepted by faith the Lord Jesus as his only personal Savior. It was then when he decided to make a very strong commitment to live for Jesus Christ. Subsequently, receiving a call from God through the Scripture of Isaiah 61:1-2, to evangelize and make disciples, he went to the Bible Institute of the Church of the Nazarene in Havana for two years for preparing himself better for the ministry. He continued later his theological studies for four more years at the Methodist Seminary of Theology in Matanzas, Cuba, where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Theology.

Hiram has performed also as the opening piano soloist for the well-known Christian show ''The Promise", played at the Will Rogers Theater in Branson, Missouri, during its 1998-1999 season. He was as well a guest artist at the Christmas Holiday Prelude Festival at Juanita Hammonds Hall in Springfield, Missouri sponsored by The Messiah Project, Inc.
In addition to this, Hiram gave a presentation for a worship service at the 1999 Miss USA Pageant in Branson, Missouri. Hiram has also performed several concerts at the State Capitol in Jefferson City, Missouri and has performed in many schools and nursing homes throughout the United States and in many venues in more than 30 States of the American union.

From 2004 until 2007, Hiram and his wife Yani served as missionaries with Maranatha Volunteers International India, training pastors, in the media department and Hiram as special assignment personnel to the Director of Maranatha India, living full time in India.

 After that, from 2007 to 2009 they served as missionaries and pastoral trainers in the country of Panama helping several Churches in these areas and working with Panamanian indigenous people.

At the end of 2009, after attending as visitors to the General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene in Orlando, FL, Hiram and Yani were prompted by God to come back to the Church of the Nazarene as missionaries. In March 2010 they started to serve and minister as volunteer missionaries in the former Caribbean Regional Office, today Mesoamerica Region, where they are currently serving.

From September 2010 until March 2011, Hiram and Yani have served as regional missionaries of MAR Region, helping as interim NCM Coordinators traveling one week a month to Haiti, assessing some of the proposals for NCM projects for 9 months.

Currently, Hiram and Yani has been assigned again to Panama as global missionaries of the church of the Nazarene and are going presently through the assessment process through the Global Missions Center from Kansas City, Missouri.

Hiram uses a unique musical presentation and ministry that ranges from classical, traditional hymns to Christian Jazz, Gospel and contemporary praise and worship songs, preaching as well a refreshing and challenging message of the Word of God applicable to the present times.

His ministry and music will bless you.
