1,500 Gather for Potomac Hispanic Ministries Convention
By Hugo Chinchay
Potomac Conference Hispanic Ministries Convention
Attendees spent those hours listening to speakers, singing, praying, participating and learning. During the day, they broke into different sessions of their choice to listen to seminars designed to enhance the work they do in their churches.
On Saturday night, a group of laymen was recognized for graduating in different areas of church work after two to four years of attending classes and training on Sundays. Pastors and their districts also met with their constituents to lay a plan of action for the year. They plan to baptize 1,599 new converts and create 11 new churches this year. One of these churches will be for second and third generation young Hispanics that speak mostly English.
At the end of the program, evangelist and keynote speaker Alejandro Bullón made an appeal for people who had not yet given their lives to Jesus. He didn’t expect to see many visitors since this was a lay-training weekend, however, a group of about 40 came forward to be baptized.
