It was a joy to participate in the 2019 Red de Ministerios (Sonshine) Annual Conference Friday and Saturday August 30–31, 2019. The conference family gathered in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, at Cristo La Roca International Ministry. The host church pastored by Rev. and Mrs. Angel Diaz provided a wonderful setting and gracious hospitality.
Bishop Blas Ramirez and his team scheduled their August on-site revitalization training on Friday in conjunction with the annual conference, and it proved very successful. Approximately 90 attended the training, and Pastor Jamie Grisham served the attendees well. Multiple churches in the conference are experiencing increased and consistent growth.
The Friday evening worship and ministry service was marked by an atmosphere of faith and expectancy.
Arise 2033 was the ministry emphasis and charge. The conference body responded with excitement and a high level of commitment to the vision. Red de Ministerios will be an aggressive participant in the fruition of Arise 2033.
The annual conference activities took place on Saturday, and the time was filled with joy, enthusiasm, worship, reporting, and planning.
Bishop Ramirez gave a stirring State of the Conference Report as he celebrated what was taking place across the conference but with a greater emphasis on what lies ahead. Bishop communicated a strong commitment to engage, train, and empower younger leaders. They have a solid plan of action, and it is obvious this is a passion and purpose they will fulfill.
There was a wonderful group of individuals who received credentials. This serves as a clear indication of the level of laborers and leaders that is rising to their places of kingdom duty through Red de Ministerios:
Raul A. Brown
Pearline E. Roomes Brown
Lucrecia D. Lopez
Angel Martinez Navarro
Ada N. Gonzalez Hernandez
Angelica Dinora Pinto Rosas
Hugo Delfin Cordero
Local Church Ministers
Beatrice Mercado Ortiz
The credentialing service was a special time of scriptural exaltation, prayer, and impartation charged by Holy Spirit.
It is exciting to witness the energy and unity that marks this conference family. Bishop Blas and his wife Wanda are providing excellent leadership and direction. The conference council is on point in serving and assisting in a variety of duties and responsibilities as they co-labor to take this ministry into its destined future.
I was so grateful to have Rev. Luis Avila serving with me. Bro. Luis is highly regarded by the conference constituency and has a strong, productive, and long-lasting relationship with Red de Ministerios.
It is my confidence that we will continue to hear increasing testimony of fruitful ministry taking place through the ministry of this conference. Agree with me for the increase of laborers, resources, open doors and lasting fruit!
