Pastors Melinda & Carlos Hernandez
During the last 11 years, Pastors Hernandez have been working earnestly in both Desoto and Hardee County with the preaching of the Gospel. However, through the radio ministry, they have been able to reach thousands for the Lord. Since 2013, these Pastors have worked diligently one church in two locations and are progressively growing.
“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
– John 15:13
Bethel Church – For a New Life
Bethel International Ministries formed in Desoto & Hardee County in 2007. Pastors Joshua and Sandy Rincon sent a couple from their leadership staff in Immokalee to start a church in Arcadia.
On June 1st, 2007 Pastors Melinda and Carlos Hernandez started the mission in Arcadia and in February 2008, they began to preach the Word of God in Zolfo Springs and Wauchula.
Our commitment is to passionately draw the heart of people back to our Heavenly Father!
