He was born in Guatemala city, Guatemala and then moved to Niagara Falls, Canada, in 1991.

On March 22, 1994, at the age of thirteen, he surrendered his life to God to preach the Gospel under the preaching of Dr. Jack Hyles. His first time preaching was street preaching to an audience of a few hundred people in front of Niagara Falls.
In September of 1999, he attended Hyles-Anderson College where he met his wife Julia. He continued his work on the bus ministry where he also became a bus captain and saw many children and adults come to Christ. At the age of twenty-six he received an invitation to be the youth pastor at Grace Baptist Church. Here he has worked as a youth pastor, Sunday school teacher, academy Bible teacher, bus driver, financial officer and now pastor.
Pastor Flores and his wife now have three beautiful children, Emily, Amberly and Ian. As a family, they are eager to serve, their community by sharing the Word of God. His biggest goal in life is, to live his life to please God and those who invested their lives so this young man would get to know how AWESOME GOD IS. His plan for the community is to show them that God still answers prayer, forgives sin and can heal our land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
