Jans Morales-Batista was born and raised in Cuba. He came to the United States in 2014 as a Church Planter with the North American Mission Board. Jans joined the pastoral staff at First Baptist Church of Flushing in August 2016 as the Assistant to the Pastor of Spanish Ministry.

While in Cuba, Jans received an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the Universidad Central “Marta Abreu” and a bachelor’s in Theology from the Seminario Teológico Bautista de la Habana “Rafael A.

Prior to coming to the States, Jans played varied ministry roles in the church, including: member of the Deacon Board, cell group leader, children’s ministry leader, Christian Education director, and missionary. He also served for almost five years as a Seminarian-Pastor in a number of churches in his native Cuba, and most recently as Administrative Pastor at “La Palabra” Baptist Church in Queens, NY.

Jans enjoys swimming and riding his black motorcycle, but his greatest passion by far is to preach and teach the Word of God.
