Hispanic Congregation to become Organized!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 8:44 pm

In March of 2009, Ocoee Church of God launched a Hispanic Ministry to reach the Hispanic community of Ocoee.

Starting only with 3, the congregation has grown and is now self supportive!

For the first year, the Hispanic Ministry conducted services at our main campus on Sundays @ 2pm and Tuesdays @ 7:30pm.

In April 2010, we moved the Hispanic Ministry to their own location, the former site of Ocoee, Harvest Church of God.

That location (The Hispanic Campus, as we call it) has continued to grow and now conducts multiple services weekly!

After just over two years, plans are in the making to organize this congregation as a stand alone Church of God!

I could not be more pleased with what has occurred through the Hispanic Ministry of Ocoee Church of God.

To the OCOG peeps at the Main Campus, THANK YOU for catching my vision and stepping out on FAITH!!!

To the OCOG peeps at the Hispanic Campus, THANK YOU for your work and committment each and every week, even when the attendance was in the single digits!

To Pastors Raymond and Marisol Escalera and Amy, THANK YOU for your labor of love – even during the tough times!!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your ministry and for having faith in me and Anglo campus!!

Even though our church relationship will change from a mother-daughter relationship to a sister-sister relationship, I’m here to serve you any way I can!
