MARANATA CHURCH, EL CARMEN
The Maranatha Church is a semi-urban congregation of 50 members, 15 of whom are strong leaders. Its pastor, José María Claros, has a huge heart for service. In 2011, ENLACE church coach and pastor, Isidro Ramírez, from San Rafael Cedro, encouraged Pastor José to become an ENLACE partner. Soon after, this church became a partner.
Prior to working with ENLACE, the church had providede food and clothes to needed people in their community, hosting medical teams, and working with the local school. The church is highly motivated and, as a result of their efforts, the community holds the church in high regard. The coaching from ENLACE will build upon this foundation and help expand the vision and help guide a church already extremely committed to serving its community.
