Jose Santos Family: Plainfield, NJ

Ministering to Plainfield, New Jersey.

  • Comments

My name is Pastor Jose Santos. By God’s grace, we started Christ Centered Baptist Church in Plainfield, New Jersey in January 2015. Your monthly support will help allow me to serve full-time at the church and put all my efforts into seeing the work grow.

Background

I was born in 1968 and raised in Puerto Rico, but later moved to Perth Amboy, NJ with my family when I was 15 years old. It was after that move to Perth Amboy when I began to experiment with drugs. Becoming so involved with the drug scene, I became a high school dropout and began to deal drugs on the streets of Perth Amboy where I continually came in contact with law enforcement and arrested for substance abuse.

In 1996, after hearing a sermon on television regarding Jesus Christ able to bring forgiveness and salvation, I looked up in the phone book the name of the church that resembled the message I had heard on television. That search led me to the First Baptist Church in Perth Amboy, NJ under the direction of Pastor William A. Gerak. Soon after attending the services at First Baptist Church, I saw my lost condition and asked Christ to save me. Shortly thereafter, I felt God’s call to preach while attending a pastor’s conference.

I attended Hyles-Anderson College in 1998. With three children, a wife, and a full-time job, I graduated from Hyles-Anderson College in 2004 with a earned Bachelor of Science degree, with honors, in Pastoral Theology. During Pastors’ School in 2002, I felt God was calling me to start a church.
After graduation, I served in my home church, First Baptist Church in Perth Amboy, NJ, as an Assistant Pastor in charge of the bus ministry. I served faithfully in that ministry from 2004 to 2009 until God called me to a new ministry. In 2009, I joined the pastoral staff at Somerset Bible Baptist Church as Spanish Pastor where God kept the burden of church planting in my heart.

Burden

While serving as Spanish Pastor at Somerset Bible Baptist Church, God strengthened the burden of church pioneering in my heart. God led me to start Christ-Centered Baptist Church in Plainfield, NJ. Plainfield is a 100% urban area with a population of over 50,000. My goal is to reach all 50,000 people with a gospel invitation.

Current Status

Christ Centered Baptist Church started in January 2015. We are currently meeting in a rented 40 person capacity room on Sundays. We have an average attendance of 25 people and would like to see continued growth. We are in the process of securing a bus with the intention of starting a bus ministry to reach more people in our area.
