About My Family

I'm married to Myrna, and we have two boys, Peniel and Jonatán, and Mirelix is our recent daughter. In 2008 we planted and established a church in Puerto Rico. After this we felt led to plant another church. Little did we know it was going to be in Colorado. In 2015 we moved to Colorado Springs to plant a church and bring the gospel to the Hispanic community of the city.

About My Church Plant

Hispanics come to the U.S.—leaving behind family and the country they love—to find better opportunities. But once here they feel a sense emptiness that the “American Dream” can’t fulfill, because only the gospel can. We want to help Spanish-speaking people in our city to be totally fulfilled and satisfied in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to be a multicultural community, united under the banner of Christ, who boldly live with the mission of making Him known.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.

Pray

Pray that the busy Hispanic community may stop for a moment and be refreshed in the gospel. Pray that the disciples of Iglesia Gracia y Verdad may grow in the knowledge of the Lord and commit more to His kingdom and cause. Pray that the leaders the Lord is raising up in Iglesia Gracia y Verdad may selflessly give themselves to the gospel through this local church.

Participate

You can pray for us. We would love to have you receive our monthly newsletter so you can keep updated on what's going on. You can also participate with us by coming to our city and serving the Hispanic community so they can see the love of Christ in a more tangible way. And you can partner with us by supporting us long- or short-term.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant.
