All Saints has the organizational infrastructure and physical space to support a Spanish-language ministry, and is conveniently located near two freeways, allowing a Spanish language ministry to draw people from around the region as well as the local neighborhood. After prayerful consideration, discernment, and prayer, All Saints is passionate and excited to embrace the vision God has laid before them to serve their community.
