Rev. Emilio Medina
Leader of the Evangelism Ministry

The evangelistic vision that God has given Rescue Ministries Church is to reach the lost at any cost. We love spreading the love of God to the hurting, the helpless and the hopeless. We believe by personal testimony that the Lord Jesus Christ is able to change anyone’s life, no matter their present situation. We will continue to preach, reach, and teach the powerful message of the Cross.
