2011 Hispanic Fly-In
|Missionary Parade at the Hispanic Fly-In|
Three hundred and seventy-five Hispanic pastors, district leaders, missionaries and others attended the Hispanic Fly-In on April 8-9, 2011, at the Renaissance Newark Airport Hotel in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
The event was hosted by the Spanish Eastern District of the Assemblies of God with assistance from the AGWM Mobilization department.
The conference, which began Friday afternoon, was moderated by Spanish Eastern District Missions Director Domingo Valdes, with greetings and prayer from District Superintendent Rafael Reyes.
Sessions included how to receive a faith promise, reports from AGWM regional directors, testimonies from Hispanic missionaries, videos, and a report from Convoy of Hope International.
An evening banquet included a dynamic choir presentation from Living Water Christian Center in El Paso, Texas, where Jose Portillo is pastor, titled “All Generations.” L. John Bueno gave the keynote message. David Lee presented a missions update through a PowerPoint presentation.
Benny Ferguson, one of the presenters, commented: “The primary purpose of this Fly-In was to expose pastors, churches and mission boards in the Hispanic community to a greater level of missions involvement.”
Ferguson continued: “These retreats broaden the missions base on two levels. First, they get more churches involved. Pastors attended who have never been to a Fly-In before. Second, we are helping everyone understand new techniques and methods of reaching out to our missionaries, and ways of encouraging local congregations to get more involved in missions.”
The missions offering received during the Fly-In came to $7,508. Faith Promises for the next 12 months totaled $940 a month.
Each year a different Hispanic district hosts this event. Information on the 2012 Hispanic Fly-In will be posted as information becomes available.
