ConferencesNorthern CaliforniaRichmond Spanish Group Becomes a Company

On Sabbath, Aug. 21, the NCC organized the Richmond Spanish company during a service at its “mother” church, the Richmond Beacon Light church. The new company is in a district with the Oakland Spanish and San Leandro Spanish churches, led by Senior Pastor Luis Fernando Manrique and Associate Pastor Pedro Rosillo.

Nineteen years ago, several Adventists decided to establish a new Spanish-speaking congregation in Richmond. They began by meeting in the garage of a member and soon rented a small church building. The next year, the Beacon Light church invited the group to meet in their fellowship hall. The growing congregation moved several more times and now rents a local community church facility.

A number of Hispanic and African American pastors participated in the organization service. “It is key to note that African American churches supported this small congregation since its inception, especially the Beacon Light church,” said Manrique. “We give glory and honor to God for allowing the Hispanic church to grow and develop in the city of Richmond.”
