BURGOS SERGIO 45 150x150

Spanish Pastor (Iglesia De Dios) Sergio and Mrs Maya Burgos  

It is and has been a pleasure serving Woodruff Church of God for over three years. Sergio and his family Mayra, Noel and Emilio have been pastoring the Hispanic congregation and serving the city of Woodruff. Sergio was an assistant pastor for Rev. Norman Black and youth pastor for Mauldin church of God, and was moved to assistant for the Hispanic community for the city of Woodruff. Serving the Lord for eight years, God has moved my family and I through an amazing journey. I can say, “It is well for my soul”.There is a growing population of Hispanics in the city, where I find myself lacking time to reach the people, but the word is out. There in the city of Woodruff exists a Hispanic church where we take the time to “teach, preach, and above all worship our God”.  Our purpose is to help and guide the community to a spiritual awakening, as the Lord provides the means for us to reach the people with his word. We commit ourselves to show the meaning of the name of Jesus, our theme is “give me five minutes and I will show you who is Jesus”. Que es y ha sido un placer servir a la iglesia de Dios Woodruff durante más de tres años. Sergio y su familia Mayra, Noel y Emilio han sido pastoreando la congregación hispana y servir a la ciudad de Woodruff. Sergio era un pastor asistente de pastor de jóvenes de la iglesia de Dios Mauldin Rev. Norman y Negro, y se trasladó al asistente para la comunidad hispana de la ciudad de Woodruff. Sirviendo al Señor durante ocho años, Dios se ha movido mi familia y yo a través de un viaje asombroso. Puedo decir, "Está bien para mi alma". Existe una creciente población de hispanos en la ciudad, donde me encuentro que carecen de tiempo para llegar a la gente, pero la palabra está fuera. Allí, en la ciudad de Woodruff existe una iglesia hispana donde se toma el tiempo para "enseñar, predicar, y sobre todo el culto a nuestro Dios". Nuestro propósito es ayudar y orientar a la comunidad a un despertar espiritual, como el Señor proporciona los medios para nosotros llegar a la gente con su palabra. Nos comprometemos a mostrar el significado del nombre de Jesús, nuestro tema es "dame cinco minutos y te mostrará quién es Jesús".
