PASTOR SAM ACEVADA

Sam Acevedo, is the Pastor for Social Transformation at the Congregación León de Judá in Boston, Massachusetts.  In that capacity, Pastor Sam serves as the Executive Minister overseeing Miracle Mile Ministries, a collaborative of churches devoted to a sustained, deliberate, strategic response (volunteers, nutrition, clothing, love, etc.) to the area we call "Miracle Mile" (a roughly 2-square-mile area in the South End of Boston often referred to as “Mass & Cass” or “Methadone Mile”); until recently, Pastor Sam also served as the Executive Director of the Boston Higher Education Resource Center (HERC) since its founding in 1999, an organization which enables at-risk Latino and other first-generation youth, to gain access to a higher education, break the cycle of poverty, and become leaders in the community. Sam serves as one of the founding Co-Chairs of the Boston School Committee’s Opportunity and Achievement Gap Task Force; previously, Pastor Sam had served on the 2020 Exam School Working Group, and both the 2015 and 2018 BPS Superintendent Search Committee.  He and his wife, Marina, were married in July of 2001.

Douglas Lomax will help the church understand and have a passion for those who are struggling with poverty and addiction. May God break our heart with the things that break his and may we spring into action for the least of these.
