Local hispanic ministry impacts families, draws community together

Local hispanic ministry impacts families, draws community together

From Brad Taylor, Pastor of Briarwood Hispanic Congregation

image (8)Briarwood’s Hispanic congregation enjoyed our annual church retreat on Labor Day weekend at the Laguna Beach Retreat Center in Panama City, Florida.

We had a number of families who attended who heard the gospel clearly presented and it was a great time of fun, fellowship and growth in the Lord.

We have had many different activities during this fall including weekly cell groups, Bible studies and prayer meetings, as well as going out to share the gospel with our neighbors.

In November, we hosted a city-wide evangelistic outreach called “Festival of Hope” with Pastor Carlos Rivas from El Salvador and Bruce Woodman, a missionary supported by Briarwood for many years.

We are praying that those who attended heard the gospel through this event and that believers were challenged and renewed in their faith and walk with Christ.

We cherish your prayers for the Hispanic ministry!
