Jefferson Hernandez had not given a moment’s thought to what he and his wife Carol would call their new church plant in Sterling, Virginia.

“I’d just read in John 4 where it says the fields are white unto harvest, and the phrase ‘Campo Blanco’ crossed my mind. That was the name given to the church—Campo Blanco, which in English is ‘White Field’.”

Lured by the promise of high-paying jobs, immigrants from Central and South America are moving there in record numbers. Many of them are unreached by the gospel. “Seeing this place fill up with lost people, I can see now that there’s enough potential to start a church on every block. And still, we’d need more. ‘White Field’ was definitely a good name.”

The Cooperative Program takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Easter offering helps church planters form Gospel-centered relationships in the communities they serve that bring more people to a saving knowledge of Christ.

Pray for Families in the church to grow in their devotion to Christ.
