The Brewer Road Church of Christ is the local Hispanic mission work that South Fork helps support in our community. Goyo Nieto and Gustavo Prato are the ministers at Brewer Road and share the pulpit ministry preaching time in addition to evangelistic outreach and other ministry activities. The congregation has grown to an average attendance of about 230 people on Sunday mornings. This growth is due to the members reaching out to their families and friends, and the different ministries we have developed such as: Parkland Campus ministry; parenting and marriage classes; one on one bible studies; recreational activities; marriage and family counseling; translation assistance in hospital/legal/educational issues; and reading club.
Goyo and Gustavo also serve the Hispanic community with their involvement with the “Centro Hispano” (Hispanic Center), Family Services, and Parkland High School. Goyo Nieto works as a volunteer Chaplain at Forsyth Medical Center.
The Brewer Road congregation established a mission work in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. They support a full-time minister and his wife.
The Brewer Road women’s ministry organizes children’s classes, church fellowships, and meets on Saturday mornings for bible study. South Fork not only serves this ministry in a monetary way but is very involved, providing teachers on Sunday mornings for two different age groups of Bible class and participating in bilingual services several times a year.
