Celebrating 25 years of Encuentro Radio Ministry

In 2019, we are celebrating 25 years of the Encuentro radio ministry! Encuentro radio with Ernesto Pinto began reaching Hispanic people for Jesus on one Winnipeg radio station in 1994. Today, Encuentro airs in every Spanish speaking country in the world. The Spanish ministry also includes Encuentro Familiar with Marina Pinto, Realidad with Oscar Sanchez, 180 Grados for TV, a social media presence, and live speaking engagements.

Here's a look back at a few "Then and Now" photos!

Then (1994)… Ernesto Pinto was a pastor with the MB Church’s Missions and Church Extension (MCE) in 1994 when the idea for Encuentro, the Spanish language radio program, was developed. Ernesto (seated) shown with Assistant Director Delbert Enns (center), Executive Director Burton Buller (right), and MCE Director Neil Block.
