Rene & Barb Rocha

Spanish Pastors

There are times when we ask ourselves:  "Why do we do this?  What drives us to tell all these people about the great love, mercy, and forgiveness of God?"  The answer is simple; it is a response to the same love, mercy, and forgiveness we have received from God.  

It is our desire to tell the Hispanics about God and to see people of every race and nationality fall in love with Jesus and be set free.  Matthew 28:19 states: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."  This ministry touches the heart of God by touching the hearts of the Hispanic people and serving them in practical ways.
