Selvin Vega

Honduras

Service Area: International

Ministry Focus

Pastor Selvin currently pastors a church in Dulce Nombre de Copan, an area with a great amount of coffee production. Many people work here to make the coffee, providing the opportunity to evangelize people who come to work in the area.

The vision is to use this main church as a mission expansion center and plant new churches in the region through preparation of workers who, once trained, will be sent out to share the Gospel.

Currently, other outreach centers have been started. Plan Grande, for example, is an outreach center where there are already fifteen people who have received the Lord as well as many children.

Pastor Selvin is a pastor’s son, though he was not originally encouraged to become a pastor himself. As a child, he suffered from a lack of food as his father’s ministry stemmed out of very difficult places with very few resources.

Once married, his wife Carolina felt a strong call to serve the Lord more intensely. She was a school teacher, and prayed for her husband and family for him to feel that same passion. Some people encouraged her to believe in the Lord’s faithfulness, and many admired the Vega family’s strength and passion. Finally, God confirmed they should move to the Dulce Nombre de Copan region of Honduras to plant churches.

Faith Story

Pastor Selvin received the Lord Jesus as his Savior in an evangelism service in La Unión community in 1998, became a member of the local church, and advanced in his entire process of spiritual growth. He was baptized, discipled, and finally called to Christian service.

His wife, Carolina, received the Lord at her local church in San Pedro Sula and served there for several years. She decided to leave her job as a teacher to serve the Lord in support of her husband.

Both decided to move from the city to the mountains in 2014 to start church planting work in that area.

Family

Selvin and Carolina were married in 2008. They have two beautiful children: Samuel Obed (10), and Jabes Abraham (8)
