Nuestros Amigos en Kissimmee
¡BIENVENIDO, AMIGOS DE A LA IGLESIA DE KISSIMMEE FELLOWSHIP!
Kissimmee Fellowship existe por reunir gente al corazón de Dios en el evangelio de Jesucristo.
Kissimmee Fellowship exists to make disciples by gathering people to the heart of Christ.
We’ve recently become friends with Heath and Emily Zuniga who moved to Central Florida to start Kissimmee Fellowship, a PCA church plant in the middle of the Latino community in the Kissimmee area. Strategically planted in Osceola County, Kissimmee Fellowship is located in the second-fastest-growing county in Florida. Our friends, and now local partners, dream of reaching the Latino community in Central Florida.
Heath is Mexican-American born and raised in the U.S. and serves as a Teaching Elder in the PCA. Of the nearly 5,000 Teaching Elders in the PCA, only 1% of them are Hispanic. According to the latest projections from the U.S. Census, by the year 2045, white Americans will transition to being a minority group with a population size below 50%. This is a growing concern for the PCA, which does not have enough minority leadership to adequately care for, disciple, and shepherd the changing demographics.
Together, Heath and Emily are actively ministering cross-culturally through this church plant in response to this changing demographic. Their church will incorporate both English and Spanish in their ministry and they value having theological depth and relational warmth.
This season, we are partnering with the PCA Unity fund to advance minority-led ministry through our Thanks:Giving giving opportunity. A portion of the funds raised will be allocated to the work that Heath and Emily are doing. The deadline to give is Nov 30, and you can give by clicking on the Thanks:Giving button on the Church Center homepage or by visiting orangewood.org/thanksgiving!
