Alcides Gonzales is a field coordinator for HFC serving in San Lorenzo, Paraguay. Alcides completed studies at Word of Life Bible Institute in Buenos Aires in 1992. He started out overseeing local Bible clubs in Paraguay and became the pastor of Iglesia Cristiana Evangelica Florida in 1995. In 2010 he started an orphanage to serve a needy community, and is now focusing on planting new churches across Paraguay.
Maximo Toledo is a Pastor working out of Iglesia Florida, in Paraguay. Pastor Maximo uses training materials from the local Bible Training Center and takes the classes out to the rural areas to deliver training to pastors. Pastor Maximo is one of three teachers equipping the rural pastors. He works with Alcides and is able to do this with the partnership and support of Crosspointe. This is an example of the fruit these church partnerships can produce.
