During his doctoral work, Professor Castelo taught intensive Wesleyan theology courses in Mexico, Honduras, and Brazil and afterward took a teaching post at a Mexican seminary for three years. Subsequently, he moved to the Pacific Northwest, where he taught for fourteen years. He has been an active participant in the Central American Methodist Course of Study program and has served as a doctoral mentor for the Hispanic Theological Initiative.

Dr. Castelo began his publishing career exploring the topic of divine attribution. This work resulted in a monograph for which he won a John Templeton Award for Theological Promise. He proceeded to consider questions surrounding a Christian account of theodicy, the doctrine of God broadly, and the theological interpretation of Scripture.

He is currently interested in developing and connecting themes within pan-Methodism, Latinx theology, and pneumatology to broader conversations in the fields of Christian spirituality, doctrinal theology, and constructive theology.
