Amistad Cristiana International Official Endorsement
Amistad Cristiana International Inc. stands in full support of our pastor Javier Chavez. A faithful man who served God and God’s people for 20 years as a missionary to South America, church planter, pastor, college professor, and denominational leader in the Georgia Baptist Convention.
In 2016 the Chavez family embarked in a faith journey and planted Amistad Cristiana in Gainesville. Starting with only four families, the congregation is today one of the rapid growing Hispanic churches in northeast Georgia.
Pastor Chavez brings a servant spirit to the Southern Baptist Convention. In a recent international leadership meeting with tears in his eyes, he shared, "Twenty years ago, when Noelia and I were feeding very poor children in the marginal areas of Lima and all seemed so discouraging, I cried out to God complaining that no one was getting saved. That night God's Word assured me that he was not looking for my human success but instead for a total dependency on God. As I see where the Lord has placed me today, all I desire to become each day is a more humble vessel He can use."
AMC will send a full slate of messengers in support of our pastor’s nomination for 2nd Vice-President. An unanimous decision to endorse him was made which received the full support of our extended ministry partners in Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Switzerland, and the UK.
