Founder & Overseer Reverend Eladio R. Villanueva, Jr., became an ordained minister on January 28, 2007 and served as the Administrative Pastor at East Side Tabernacle in NYC from 2007 to 2013. Pastor V. as he is commonly called is currently the full time overseer of SonSet Ministries and is a member of Liquid Church in Nutley, NJ. Pastor V. has been married over 24 years to his wife Yvette and is the father of two beautiful girls, Candice & Rebekah.
In 2009, Pastor Villanueva saw the that many of the leaders serving in the church were becoming overwhelmed with the work load and responsibilities that came with their position. One of the negative ramifications of this was that these same leaders were constantly pouring out into the lives of others, but they themselves were not being spiritually fed. So pastor V. as he is affectionately called, began weekly conference calls at 7:00a.m. Monday through Friday wherein he shared uplifting and encouraging messages that the leaders could listen to from the comfort of their home. This ministry was initially called "SonRise ministry."
As time went on, the conference call started attracting regular participants from different parts of the United States and eventually the overwhelming request was to switch the time of the conference calls from the morning to the evening, and thus the name of the ministry was changed to SonSet Ministries. Eventually the focus of this growing ministry changed and what began as an in house ministry geared towards leaders in the church, eventually became an internet based ministry open to all.
SonSet Ministries mission is three fold:
1. SonSet Ministries core mission is to introduce Jesus Christ and His word to non-believers who would not ordinarily walk into a regular brick and mortar church. In addition we want to be a bridge that eventually leads newly converted Christians into active membership in their local church.
2. We want to be a resource for Christians who for various reasons have not been actively involved in their local church and are looking to be refreshed, renewed and eventually connected back with a church of their choice.
3. Finally, SonSet Ministries is a place for active Christians who simply want to supplement their Christian foundation with biblical based teachings and expand their prayer life.
