DOOR is pleased to announce that Manuel Alvarez has been hired as the DOOR Los Angeles Program Manager.
Manny considers himself passionate and driven by vision and stewardship. He is most alive when he is helping and interacting with others, and when he is working towards a long-term vision. Manny looks for ways to use marketing to connect and relate to people in the marketplace and in ministry. He is a Los Angeles native of Mexican and Salvadoran (Hispanic) descent, and has enjoyed absorbing the impact and growth of the city. An extrovert with a love for people, Manny has been attracted to ministry from an early age. This led him to a week of Discover at DOOR Miami in 2009 and later brought him to DOOR Denver as a Discerner in the summers of 2011 and 2012. He then got the opportunity to be the Marketing Intern for the DOOR National Office in the summers of 2013 and 2014. DOOR has impacted his worldview and faith significantly, teaching him about living in community, solidarity, and the power of stories. Manny obtained his BA in Marketing from Azusa Pacific University, where he also served as an interpreter for the Men’s Prison Team while visiting inmates at the Mexicali Federal Prison.
