Pastor Watt has been at El Vista since 1986. He grew up here as a child and left to attend Tenneessee Temple College & Seminary. After graduation, he pastored Liberty Baptist Church in Rochester, IN. He and his wife, Martha, are happy to have reared their six children here at El Vista.
Brother Lancaster came to El Vista in 1982 from Michigan where he also grew up. He graduated Tenneessee Temple College & University of Tenneessee at Chattanooga where he studied music. He and his wife, Randi, reared their four children at El Vista.
Pastor Montoya started the Spanish ministry at El Vista in 2009 with only a few people. It has now grown to an average attendance of around 30 each service. Services are conducted at the same time as the English services. He and his wife, Gregoria, have six children.
31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
