At the service, the District Superintendent, Elder Roberto López Fajardo; Field NYI Coordinator, Joshua Villatoro and the Mesoamerica NYI Coordinator and President, Rev. Milton Gay were present.

“Since its inception in 2010, the NYI is investing in training and developing leaders comprehensively to guide this generation into a relationship with Christ that will last a lifetime; there are already 7 educational centers running and by the end of 2015 we expect to graduate about 80 leaders who join 160 specialized in Youth Ministry.
