Christ Covenant Church is excited to have José Portillo, our Church Planting Apprentice, as our guest speaker for Missions Conference on Sunday, March 14, during the evening worship service. José Portillo is in the process of church planting Vive Church in the University area of Charlotte, NC.
José Portillo graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary Charlotte with an MDiv. For the last two years he served as the Campus Administrator and Director of Hispanic Engagement for RTS in Houston, Texas, where he spent nearly 18 years of his life. José was born in Costa Rica and lived all over Central America as his dad preached, encouraged pastors, and planted churches. Now José is excited to be coming to Charlotte to begin a church planting apprenticeship. His goal is to live and plant a church in the middle of the rapidly-growing Hispanic population in the North Eastern part of Charlotte, bringing the transforming power of the gospel to this diverse community. Please pray that the Lord will raise co-workers to join him in this work through both prayers and labor. José is married to Anna, and they have one daughter.
