WELCOME OUR NEW CHURCH
First Hispanic Presbyterian Church of Fayetteville
With Presbytery approval, the day of fruition finally came!
Started as a small Hispanic mission ministry in 1999, our newest church in the Central Community of the Presbytery was joyfully chartered on November 12, 2017, at Galatia Presbyterian Church. We celebrate with thanksgiving and praise to our Lord, Jesus Christ for the pastor, CRE Trinidad Martinez Solis, the elders, deacons and members of the new First Hispanic Presbyterian Church of Fayetteville and the full support of the Galatia Presbyterian Church which has hosted the community from the very beginning.
From 1999 to present several persons served on a steering team to work with members and evangelists to help this new church grow. The other congregations in Fayetteville showed support in many ways over the years to help this congregation thrive. The Presbytery staff, especially Eduardo Moreno, nurtured this congregation diligently over these years.
Rev. Moreno continues to teach a CRE/QRE course on Saturdays to raise up more Spanish speaking leaders and evangelists. It was through one of Rev. Moreno’s 2 year programs that Trinidad Martinez became eligible to serve as pastor of this congregation.
As this new church moves forward to be the church God is calling them to be, let us keep them lifted up in our prayers. Anytime when you are available, you are cordially welcome to worship with them.
Worship service happen each Sunday at 1:00 P.M. in the sanctuary of Galatia Presbyterian Church, 8800 Galatia Church Road, Fayetteville. All are welcome.
Participants of the Commission to charter were:
- Rev. Ben West, Honorable Retired, Chair of the Mission’s Steering Team
- Rev. Clarence Page, Central Community Mission Coordinator,
- Rev. Bill Reinhold, General Presbyter of Presbytery of Coastal Carolina,
- Pastor Brett Johnson, Galatia Presbyterian Church,
- Rev. Cassandra Thomas, College Heights Presbyterian,

Shared Mission Support of Presbytery makes this evangelism and new church development possible. Together we are in Mission.
