Accelerating Church Planting Globally

Geovana and the Gospel

GeovanaBut how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? (Romans 10:14, NLT)

Geovana Puerto is a church planter for the Assemblies of God in the neighborhood of Provipaz, Colombia. Geovana saw there was a need in her community for the people to hear the gospel. A desire was born within her to meet that need. She felt God was calling her to leave her comfort zone and take on this challenge of reaching her community.

This calling was confirmed in each training she received as a church planter in the More Churches program from Multiplication Network Ministries (MNM). With each new module came a task and a new set of tools and strategies. With a lot of prayer, Geovana was able to take what she had learned and apply it to her situation.

With these approaches for evangelizing, Geovana was able to bring the gospel to people in the community. As a result, some were able to hear and receive the Good News for the first time. The new believers began to meet in a house but as more people of the neighborhood became interested in receiving the Word of God, the meetings outgrew the house! They began to gather in a new place, one without a roof or walls. “This project has been a long journey in all areas of this community,” Geovana says, recalling how God has transformed the lives of the people.

For Geovana, the most gratifying thing during these years has been seeing how the people are touched and transformed, from the youngest to the oldest. “Now we are developing a project with the young people where we encourage them to also reach others. Many of them understand the transforming power of God. They are the ones preaching to their parents,” shares Geovana.

For this leader, her purpose is not finished with the planted church. Rather, she knows that until her whole neighborhood and city are reached by the gospel, there is much work to do. With her training multiplying through her youth program, God continues to use Geovana to do just that!
