The basis of everything we do at Faith Ministry is our faith in God and our desire for others to know Him. In whatever activities we do, our goal is to share the love of Christ with those we are serving and working alongside.
We have three churches in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán and Naranjito, an area outside Reynosa. At each of these churches, we have Sunday worship services, as well as a worship and prayer service during the week. We also youth group gatherings and activities for children, such as Vacation Bible School and kids’ club. The churches are part of Faith Ministry, but are also under the umbrella of the Netzer Presbytery, located in Mexico City.
Our pastors and church members provide care for each other as well as the community around them. Members of the congregation pray together regularly and deliver food packages to families in need. In Miguel Alemán, there is an area of town where people don’t have the means to be able reach our church location, so the congregation brought church to them. They worship, pray and have weekly activities and special celebrations there.
Partnership with Berea Bible Institute
We have a special partnership with Instituto Bíblico Berea in Monterrey, a large city located three hours west of us in Nuevo León, Mexico. Our executive director David Rodriguez’s parents co-founded the school in 1966, and David himself graduated from the school. In 2015, Carlos Ponce graduated from Berea and became our pastor in Reynosa and Naranjito. Since then, two to three students a year from Berea come to Reynosa and Miguel Alemán every weekend to support our pastors and assist with church activities, and twice a year, they stay for a month during their “mission month.”
Every year in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán and Naranjito, we host Christmas fiestas (parties) for the families in our community. They are a time for us to gather with our brothers and sisters, eat a good meal, worship our God and remember what the Christmas season is really about. We eat tons of tamales, sing carols, pray, distribute meal packages to the families, and give toys to the kids; it is a wonderful time of fellowship and community.
