The Vineyard ministries started working in Colonia Francisco I. Madero in 2001. There was a great need for a church and feeding center in this colonia known as the “Tolerance Zone”. In 1997, the Vineyard conducted an outreach with a short term mission team. The outreach was a tremendous success; seeds were sown and have now yielded a great harvest. After years of prayer we were able to purchase property, and construction on a new church and feeding center was started in 2003. Dedication of the building took place in 2004. Pastor Dave and his wife Lolita lead the very active ministry efforts in Francisco Madero. Activities include regular Sunday services, an active Alpha program, Bible studies for women, a weekly prayer meeting and an very active youth group. In addition, they have started church plants in the Azteca and Miguel Hidalgo colonias, and a Bible Study outreach to the Juarez community. Every Tuesday there is a prayer meeting, and the growth and sustainability of Francisco Madero is the proof of commitment.
