In 2017, the Lord gave Pastor Lumar the name Aviva. Little did she know, that five years later, He’d call her to birth a church. In the middle of the Covid-19 Pandemic, and with the blessing of the Church of the Nazarene, she followed God’s call to begin planting a bilingual (Spanish & English) multigenerational multicultural church. Emanuel and Lumar, were joined by Victor, Cecilia, and Talina, and then five turned to nine, nine to twenty-five, twenty-five to sixty, and God has been multiplying and adding to their collective obedience. Aviva launched on April 3, 2022.

This summer, we’d like to launch our  Youth ministry. Help us meet our goal to reach 100 youth for Jesus!
