Pray for

San Pancho

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
San Francisco Del Rincon,
Guanajuato, Mexico
 
San Francisco del Rincon, commonly called “San Pancho,” a city of 113,000 in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. This city is unreached and unengaged city (Unreached meaning less than 2% evangelical; Unengaged meaning that currently no one from the outside is seeking to reach them!) We believe the Lord has led us to this city.
 
Our goal:  Make disciples, raise up leaders, and start healthy multiplying churches.

“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church,  the body of Christ.”
Ephesians 4:11-12

How can we be a part of the ministry in San Pancho?

 
 
We PRAY: See our Prayer card and Matthew 25:36-38. Our challenge to pray for San Pancho is YES, for salvation; YES, for disciples to be made; But, especially and ultimately for workers, leaders, pastors, missionaries and new, simple, multiplying churches.
 
Please join us by praying Matthew 9:35-38 for:
Partners, Gospel Conversations, New Believers, Servants, Leaders, and New, Multiplying Churches.
 
 
We SEND regular, small volunteer teams: To Prayer walk; Connect with people; Share the good news; “Stay with” those who are open (see Luke 10) Goal of making disciples and raising up leaders; The natural next step is organizing churches. But, as opposed to thinking about “a” church and a building, the goal is to not put expectations on real estate. Meet in living rooms, places of business, etc. The expectation of a building often means that they cannot multiply and start other churches on their own. If we keep it simple with house churches (much like the New Testament), then we are leading with a model that can continue long after we are gone.
 
We Embrace it TOGETHER: This is not just about teams. We can all be a part of the greater “team” by embracing this long-term commitment together. Please pray we will be faithful as a church family to continue this monumental challenge.
