What is the Silver Spring Church of Christ?
A better question would be who is the Silver Spring Church of Christ? We are a body of people who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord -- meaning that God lived on earth in the form of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus Christ taught us how to live, died for our sins, rose from the dead (to demonstrate that He really was God) and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
Our congregation consists of people from every race, of many languages and nationalities (about 25 nations represented on a typical Sunday morning!), of all ages, educational levels, marital statuses, and economic levels.
We are all sinners who have thrown ourselves on the grace of God, and we live with a joy and peace because God graciously forgives. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, and changes us from what we should otherwise be without Him.
"Update on Rohan Hector
our Missionary in St. Vincent & the Grenadines"
Rohan Hector has been the minister at the Richland Park Church of
Christ in St. Vincent & the Grenadines for the past 13 years. He
graduated from the Trinidad School of Preaching in 2000 and is
currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Guidance and Counseling
from the Jamaica Theological Seminary. Brother Hector last visited
our congregation in the summer of 2013 where he participated in our
VBS and preached at our worship services for two Sundays. We are the
sole supporter of his work at Richland Park.
The congregation at the Richland Park Church of Christ has grown
tremendously over the years. Physically they have outgrown their
place of worship; they have 38 members and are making plans to
expand their building.
This year, Brother Hector began ground work to establish a new
congregation in the Village of Greiggs. His plan is to have Sunday
afternoon services in the community and invite bible correspondence
course students and those that are doing home studies.
Brother Hector held a Gospel Meeting in the Village Greiggs from
July 17 – 22, 2016. During this gospel meeting two were baptized
Brother Hector has assisted various congregations over the years
with preaching and teaching including: Biabou, Bequia, Brighton and
Sandy Bay, in St. Vincent & the Grenadines. He is currently
providing preaching and teaching assistance to the Bequia Church of
Christ on a monthly basis. Since the death of the preacher in Bequia
three years ago, Brother Hector has been instrumental in finding
preachers to assist the church in their time of need. Members have
identified a preacher from Trinidad who is interested in being the
permanent minister at Bequia and are striving to raise support for
his work there.
Brother Hector teaches a monthly family enhancement class and
continues to provide much needed information to many couples and
singles. He continues to host the local television program The Bible
Speaks on Friday mornings.
Brother Hector has been a faithful servant of the Lord as he spreads
the gospel throughout
St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Please continue to pray for our
missionaries as they continue to answer the Great Commission,
Matthew 28: 16-20.
