06 May Boom Times in Safford, Ariz.
Ron Gonzales, pastor of Open Bible Fellowship (Safford, Ariz.), reports on the exciting things happening as this booming Hispanic church.
“We had our first services in our newly remodeled 15,000 square-foot facility during the Easter weekend. We didn’t receive our certificate of occupancy for the property until Friday at 4:30. Without that we couldn’t have had our Easter services there. The work on the property was done over a period of 20 months by volunteers from the church.
“We had a 7:00 Saturday evening service and, on Easter Sunday, a 10:40 morning service. We did a drama production called ‘Victory Symphony.’ The combined attendance hit 650, with 29 conversions. Now we are making plans for our dedication service.”
