Rev. Maylis de la Fe-Rodriguez

Ordained Deacon

My family and I were welcomed by the Aldersgate family in 2016. I was born and raised in Havana, Cuba, daughter to a Methodist clergywoman. I started playing piano at church at an early age. Four years after moving to the US, I was fortunate to attend the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, graduating with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance. I fell in love with the city and the spirit of New England.

Life after college took us to New Jersey, where I felt God’s call to ordained ministry. That led me to pursue a Master of Divinity degree at Drew University’s Theological School. Meanwhile, my husband and I were blessed with three children.

Coming back to where I first found “home” in this country has been an absolute joy. Finding a “church home” where we can be in vital ministry together is a privilege. I am passionate about music and worship and feel spiritually reinvigorated after every rehearsal and worship service. If you are seeking a place to feed your spirit with God’s Spirit, Aldersgate welcomes you!
