ACROSS Conference


The ACROSS Conference family gathered on Saturday, June 24th in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for its first official Quadrennial Conference as the youngest USA conference.

Bishop Hector Andrade and the Conference Council had prepared well, and the day was filled with worship, fellowship, and necessary conference business.

The ARISE IN Mission emphasis was shared, and there was a strong response to engage accordingly. The conference leaders provided exceptional reports regarding credentials, training, finances, and ministry activities.

The ACROSS Conference covers a large territory and is having an increased impact throughout the region including Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa.

Several ZONE leaders were recognized and celebrated:

Grace ZONE:Jean Pierre Gatera (this district consists of African national churches)

Kansas & Omaha ZONE:Domingo Ocampo

Kansas ZONE:Jorge Tinoco

Minneapolis ZONE:Miguel Sifuentes


Recognition was given to Guadalupe Meza and Concepcion Ramirez for local church minister’s license, Jamie Terwogt for minster’s license, and Angel Burgos and Brenda Medina for ordination.

The ACROSS Conference delegates voted to adopt the no-term limits, per the statute of limitations decision.

The following were selected to serve as the Conference Executive Council:

Hector Andrade           Conference Superintendent/Bishop

Miguel Sifuentes         Assistant Superintendent

Geronimo Orozco       Secretary/Treasurer

Hector Betance           Council member/Credentialing Coordinator

Gildardo Ramos          Council member


Bishop Andrade presented a challenging and encouraging State of the Conference report.  Its plans and vision were received with deep appreciation and support.

The day was completed with a time of Council installation, Holy Communion, and corporate prayer.

It was a great day for the ACROSS Conference.

Grace & Peace,

Garry Bryant
