Hispanic Congregations Host Virtual Evangelistic Outreach

Pacific Newsdesk Hispanic Congregations Host Virtual Evangelistic Outreach

By Faith Hoyt, with Abigail Marenco

In the second half of September, the Hispanic Ministries Department of the Pacific Union Conference, together with 160 congregations across the union territory, launched a virtual evangelistic outreach series titled “An Encounter with Jesus.”

During the virtual series, Alberto Ingleton, director of Hispanic Ministries for the Pacific Union Conference, presented helpful topics for those experiencing difficult times, including biblical stories and effective methods for changing one’s destiny through an encounter with Jesus.

“Despite the national and global crisis that we are going through under the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, 160 Hispanic congregations in the Pacific Union have come together to proclaim in our communities that Christ is not quarantined,” said Ingleton. “On the contrary, He is eager to meet men, women, and youth—to free them, to heal them, to break their chains, to return their smiles and fill their hearts with hope.”

While it is not safe to present in-person evangelistic programs, these congregations are moving forward in sharing the hope a relationship with Jesus can bring to those around them. In addition to the 160 Pacific Union congregations, churches from El Salvador and Honduras also tuned in.

The series launched September 19-26, and all were invited to tune in to recover their faith and learn how Jesus brings significance to our lives amid difficult times—which can take the form of a troubled marriage, depression, or chaotic finances.

“An encounter with Jesus brings hope to everyone,” Ingleton said. “It reignites community, strengthens faith, and provides encouragement. Our series introduced a Jesus who brings hope and salvation to all.”

The programs, hosted in Spanish, were aired on the Pacific Union Conference Hispanic Ministries Department on Facebook, @HispanicMinistriesPUC. Videos are posted to Facebook and also the Pacific Union Conference YouTube channel, @PacificUnionSDA.
