Leader: Bill and Renee Martin
Administrator: Kelly Besedick
A Christian since 1979, Bill Martin received a Bible degree and worked on the mission field for two years before returning to the States for additional education as an airplane mechanic. He then moved to Santa Fe, where he met and married Renee at Calvary Chapel Santa Fe. They served in a variety of ministries there, including the worship team, children's ministry, and as kinship leaders. After five years of marriage and three children, they were called to the mission field in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where they have been serving the Lord ever since.
The Martins have served in Puerto Vallarta since 1999 and have seen the Lord do amazing things in the lives of the people there. Through the years, they have been privileged to work with impoverished children at Calvary Chapel Mission School. The body of Calvary Chapel volunteers three times each week to teach these children English, Bible, reading, and math, and to encourage them to continue their education. The church also reaches out to the poor in the community through street evangelism, various mini festivals, dramas, and one-on-one evangelism, as well as through food and gift distribution. They have a coffee bar and bookstore in the church, which draws in folks off the street to come in and, hopefully, invite Jesus into their lives as personal Lord and Savior.
The Martins' ultimate goal is to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and train them to have a heart to lead others to the Lord through the teaching of God's Word.
