Beverly and Rubén Ramirez
Rubén and Beverly Ramirez have been ministering in Colombia with LAM Canada since 1990. Initially, they were involved in student ministry in Medellin; later, they worked in Manizales mentoring pastors. In 1994, they moved to the city of Armenia to begin a church plant and have remained there since.
Today, the Shalom Adonai Christian Community Church has become a congregation of over 900 people. Their mission is to evangelize and teach Colombians the knowledge, love and service of the Lord Jesus Christ. Their objectives are to pastor a church strong in the principles and practices of the early church expressed in Acts 2:40-47.
Rubén and Bev have two children, Andrew and Catherine, who are also involved in the church in their areas of giftedness: Andrew plays the drums on the worship team, and Catherine works with young children in the Sunday School program.
Pray that their Rubén and Bev’s church might be light and salt in a very dark and insipid place, and that all they say and do as pastoral leaders and as a congregation would be marked by a deep love for God, a passion for making Jesus Christ known, and the life-changing, healing and liberating power of the Holy Spirit.
