October was a busy month at the Sacramento Spanish church. Twenty-eight people gave their lives to the Lord in baptism.
According to Jaime Calvo, district pastor of Sacramento Spanish, North Highlands Spanish, and Woodland Spanish churches, “There is one more person who wants to give his soul to the Lord, and we are excited for that day as well!”
Since the pandemic, the church has been preparing for this reaping moment. With an interconnecting system, Calvo calls EMI or Every Member Involved, which prepares the church membership for evangelism outreach.
The church created small groups, learned to give bible studies, and prayed. Calvo explains, “We created a network where members take responsibility for new members, creating a spiritual home that is contagiously kind and community-relevant.”
Calvo said, “It has been a privilege to work with church leaders and church members that have real compassion for people, showing that they have experienced the love of Christ. Through all of this, I have seen a real transformation in our church body, and it is wonderful to see the results.”
