Church constitution service

Vida Constitution Service


Recently we held Life Baptist Church’s constitution service.  It’s an exciting step for a young church to become officially independent and autonomous (self-governing, self-supporting, and self propagating).  Over twenty adults and teenagers officially became the founding members of this church!

Vida and Vladimir

We are thankful to have a part in seeing lives changed, communities reached with the gospel, and biblical churches launched in unreached areas of Chile.

These ministries would never be possible without you!  Thank you for praying and supporting our family!


Chile Church Planting Campaign ’14


We want to thank everyone who participated in our fall CCP fund raising campaign!  Because of your gifts, we’ll be able to fund several church plants in and around Santiago, Chile.

Please check back throughout 2015 to hear updates about what God is doing through these young churches!

Church planting in northern Chile

Juan Carlos Iquique

Our church in Santiago has the privilege to serve as the sending church for Juan Carlos Lopez and his family.  They are serving as church planters about 1,100 miles north of Santiago.  Juan Carlos was trained in the Gardners’ ministry in Peru.

Iglesia Bautista Iquique

During the past few weeks we’ve been able to work on plans for further ministry in the north.  I’m thankful for Juan Carlos and his dedication to the Lord.  God is using them to lead a young and growing congregation.  In the near future, we pray God gives us the opportunity to train many young men from Iquique to plant churches throughout northern Chile.  Please pray for the Lopez family!
