Since October 2010, Alfredo has been consulting with Los Ranchos Presbytery congregations. The purpose of the position is to partner with leaders of Los Ranchos Presbytery to develop a new strategy for self-sufficiency and new models of ministry among churches looking for transformation or to establish new worshiping communities in our region.

Alfredo comes to our presbytery with more than 25 years of pastoral experience and consulting services and leadership development. He has served various communities in Venezuela, Colombia and the USA. He focuses his ministry on creative and imaginative vision and mission, lay equipping, church growth, evangelism, partnership development, community transformation and institutional renewal.

Alfredo’s enthusiastic leadership and strong faith inspires leaders to consider “what can be,” and then he walks along side them as they learn new practices, unfold their vision and gifting to lead their congregations.

Because Alfredo is a collaborative leader, and because our congregations have so much potential for development, Alfredo is continuously asking for input from pastors and lay leaders as he helps coalesce a new strategy for new worshiping communities and church transformation in Los Ranchos Presbytery.

In his own words, “I would like to nurture and develop a team of ‘pioneers’ to explore new ways of developing and redeveloping congregations. I will make sure that the vision and work of these groups is well-communicated among all the congregations and entities within our presbytery.”

The following objectives are Alfredo’s goals for 2019:

  1. In consultation with the Leader for Vision and Mission, meet with NWC leaders and associated SCT members to develop NWCs to their maximum potential. This involves helping them develop effective strategies to impact the people in their neighborhood/area.
  2. In partnership with Healthy Congregations Network Team and New Worshipping Communities Network Team host at least two workshops at each gathering of Presbytery to inform the Presbytery about different aspects of starting NWCs or, in the case of established congregations, processes for congregational renewal.
  3. Facilitate the training of members of NWC Partnership Teams and ACs using the Presbytery- approved guidelines for becoming an organized congregation.
  4. Help recruit members of established congregations to serve on NWC Partnership Teams and ACs.
  5. Serve as a resource to the SCT’s NWC network team.
  6. Establish a network for pastors/leaders, perhaps at Presbytery Gatherings and Open Space, where they can encourage one another and address the specific challenges of their ministries.
  7. In collaboration with the Cyclical Director cultivate and inspire a church-planting movement within the Presbytery of Los Ranchos. This movement will be the result of an intentional partnership with our churches and leaders, as well as an intentional expression of the diversity found in our midst.
