Two services, training leaders, and more

Iglesia Reforma is growing. Every single week we are seeing new faces. Towards the end of last year we had gotten to the point where the parking lot was completely full, and our meeting space was completely full as well. We had to make the tough decision of going to two services.

Our church now meets at 9:00am and 11:30am. It was a difficult decision since we don’t want to create two different churches, but it was something that we had to do. We now have to find ways to make sure that we integrate both services. That said, the second service is already filling up.

Here’s a picture of what the second service generally looks like. 

This also means that we need to train up more leaders. In June we will be training a whole new load of deacons and missional community leaders. We are hoping and praying to open 3 new missional communities this year.

We also have a group of 10 men in what we have called a ministerial residence. These are men who have expressed interest in serving in vocational ministry in some capacity. We are walking them through an integrated curriculum that seeks to shape them doctrinally, shape their character, and shape their ministry skills.

Please continue to pray for:

  1. Gospel clarity among our people.
  2. New leaders to be raised up.
  3. New church planters willing to be sent out.
  4. The many who have not heard the gospel.
