Sister Church in Cuba

St. Paul has a covenant relationship with our sister church in Cuba, Mariel Iglesia. The purpose of the covenant is to pray for one another, to engage in interchange of people as preachers, caravans and choirs, to respond to the priorities of Mariel Iglesia, and to build relationships between St. Paul and Mariel. We began the 18 month process of preparing for a visit from Pastor Alexeis Garces and his wife the Shepherdess Ania Rivero in June 2011.Contact info@stpauljax.org or elaineculvy@yahoo.comelaineculvy@ to see how you can participate in their visit or begin the process of ambassadors to Cuba.
