Churches Planted

The First church located in Santa Fe is Centro Cristiano de Adoracion:

Pastors Andres and Elizabeth Diaz

This church was started on August 22, 1989 in a rented building in the cityof Santa Fe. We started in a store front. The rent went from $70 per month and 18 monthes later we were paying $1200 per month. That forced us to lookfor a facility. In December 1990 the congregation moved into an oldwarehouse/garage that was converted into a beautiful sanctuary by the sacrifice of the local church. The church has grown both spiritually and numerically. Their attendance is around 350-400. Just recently thecongregation rented a theater that was being used as a discotec for the church. They can seat upwards to 800 or so in the new rented facility.Praise the Lord. The Pastors Andres and Elizabeth Diaz have 3 boys,Jonathan, Maxi, and Luke. Pray for them to move forward in the Spirit.
