Meet the Pastor
Pastor Albert Salazar was born and raised in the Houston/Pasadena Texas
area. He graduated from Pasadena High School in the summer of 1967
where upon was drafted into the army. After serving 2 years with an
honorable discharge, he returned to Pasadena Texas with his new family.
He was working at Olin Chemical Plant (10 years) when he felt the call
into full time ministry. It came out of a teachable moment in his life
when God revealed a need for leadership in the lives of young people.
When his Pastor ( Ben Rojas) wanted to offer a bible study to members of
the church,(La Hermosa) they soon found that the constituents attending
the church from a different part of town were not interceded in having a
bible study, but wanted a full time church instead.
At the age of 31, he and his wife (Della) set out on the journey that
God laid before them and New Life Church was birthed under their
Pastoral administration. He has always believed in “that a workman
should study to show himself approved” therefore, he strived to attend
school while pasturing and has earned both a Bachelors in biblical
studies from Vision Christian University, a Bachelors in Psychology from
Le’ Tourneau University, and a Master’s in Psychology/Counseling from
International Christian University. He has also been awarded an
honorary Drs. Degree.
In 2006, the name of the church was changed to Master’s Plan World
Outreach; altogether we have had 4 building programs. Master’s Plan
foundation was based on God’s word that provides growth and community.
So 30 years later, after having begun in a small 28x30 house converted
into a sanctuary in a local Houston neighborhood, the campus now sits on
a multimillion dollar complex on Beltway 8 near Highway 59.
Pastor Albert’s testimony is one of remaining faithful in the midst of
trials by overcoming through faith; not one of complexity, but of peace
found in Jesus. It is one of fighting for the Lord, and victory in
hardships. Certainly God’s greatness, mercy and grace have followed him
