The Topeka Hispanic Company recently became the newest congregation in our conference. Starting in 1995, Topeka Hispanic began with 17 members meeting in the house of Maria Cardona. They soon found space in other area churches to meet and in 2011 raised the funds to purchase their own building. Topeka Hispanic Church currently has 47 members and is continuing to grow.
During a time of celebration before the organization service, members shared their talents in a concert. Ron Carlson, Kansas-Nebraska Conference president, assured the new congregation that God performs miracles when we obey and Topeka Hispanic’s growth and love for the Lord has brought them where they are today. The signing of the charter was a family affair; everyone was invited to sign—parents and children alike.
Roberto Correa, pastor of the Topeka Hispanic and Emporia Hispanic congregations and Hispanic coordinator for the conference, says, “Topeka Hispanic Church is a healthy congregation with the desire to honor God and share His love in their community. God has blessed this church by adding new members every year and we only have gratitude to God.”
