Ministry Focus

Pastor Jose Pineda was born in the indigenous community of El Limon, Gracias, Honduras. At age 19 he received the Lord and had a deep desire to serve God in his local church. After a preparation process and service for God’s work, he was ordained as a pastor in November 2018.

His ministry is currently focused on training new believers, identifying the right people, training them through discipleship, and leading some of them throughout the process of how to start new churches in the mountains.

He is also part of the team of teachers of the West Biblical Institute by Extension and works with Missions Door missionary, Victor Almendarez, training new pastors from all over this region. In addition, he is overseeing a network of churches to provide support and care.

Jose shares with us: “I am motivated to carry out the Gospel. I know that there are so many people who do not know Jesus as I read in the Scriptures, ‘The harvest is great, and the workers are few.’ My vision is to create church multiplication networks in the mountains where I am serving the Lord.”
