Dr. Chico & Evelyn Hernandez
Evelyn and I were both born in Puerto Rico. Religiously lost people, I served in the U.S. Army for seven years and completed two tours in Viet Nam. I had an out-of-body experience in Viet Nam after a head injury. The Lord restored me back to life and I was delivered of all destruction brought on by the enemy.
I graduated from Valley Forge Christian College B.TH, and presently hold two doctorates in Theology and Christian Education. My wife holds a Bachelors in Christian Education.
We are currently serving the Lord in Merida, Yucatan in Mexico. We have been in Merida over twenty years establishing churches and training workers for the Kingdom. We have also been reaching out to the countries of Cuba, Venezuela, Honduras, the U.S.A. and this year we are extending the vision to Belize and Puerto Rico. All this by the grace of God. The Lord has allowed us to minister in the Apostolic ministry gift. In His Service.
Pastors Al & Joyce Dovidio
Al and Joyce, longtime members of Faith Temple Church, Rochester, NY studied at Elim Bible Institute, Lima, New York and entered full time ministry in 1981. Answering the call to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel", they sold all and moved overseas with their two teenage children to serve as "missionaries at large" from their base in Scotland. Their travels have taken them to Scotland, England, Canada, Germany, France, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and the Philippine Islands.
In 1991 Al and Joyce moved back to Rochester, New York, USA (their hometown) and they continued to travel at home and abroad.
Al and Joyce joined the staff of Faith Temple in 1994; Al is a member of the pastoral staff and Joyce as Director of Missions. On January 1, 1998, Al and Joyce stepped down from their positions at Faith Temple and stepped into a new and greater challenge as founders of Barnabus Plus International, a nonproft organization with a vision to reach the lost through evangelism - strengthen the hands of church leaders through seminars, conferences and presbyteries - supply Bible and Christian literature to those in need - to be a channel for fund to reach missionaries for projects - feed the poor, at home and abroad. In His Service.
