Greetings from Mexico,

In this update I wanted to tell you about one of the main activities of our church’s missions program. That focus is making follow up visits to visit our church plants and the church planters that we have sent out. We get this model from the Apostle Paul and his church planting journeys in the book of Acts.

After Paul and Barnabas planted churches on their first missionary journey, they returned to their sending home church of Antioch to give an update on all that God had done. After a short time in Antioch, Paul was ready to once again travel throughout the Roman Empire.

Paul had the urge to not only plant more churches, but to also visit the churches that he and Barnabas had already planted. We find an important verse about this in Acts 15:35, where we read… Then after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us now go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.”

When a church is a sending hub, they also need to take on the responsibility and care of the friends that they send out. One of the most effective ways to do that is by visiting church plants on missions trips. In October, we had four missions’ teams that were sent out and I want to tell you about each one of them!

I was blessed to lead the first small team that we sent out to visit our church plants in Mazatlan! We had a small group of church staffers that went to visit Pastor Tony Carranza and his family! While there, I was blessed to teach their Sunday service and host their church planting course that has 16 students all praying and hoping to be sent out one day.

We also brought down my friend and church staffer Chris (who leads our church’s lighting ministry) along with 700 dollars worth of lighting equipment that he installed in the church while we are there!

Later on that month, my friend (and CCR Pastor) Carlos Oliveros led a team of 18 to visit our church plant in Loreto! After just a year and a half, this church now averages 150 adults every Sunday in this town of 30,000!

This team was sent down with the finances and tools they needed to do 8 separate building projects and they did a great job upgrading the church’s  facility! They also built the church a brand new beautiful stage!

The following week we were blessed to send out a team of 16 women, for a women’s only missions trip to our 5 year old church plant in Monterrey! (A large Mexico state south of Texas) This team of gifted ladies hosted a children’s ministry workshop, evangelized door to door in the streets, and hosted a women’s conference.

The ladies told me that their trip highlight was the several local ladies that they got to lead to faith in Jesus Christ!  


            At the end of the month, our young adults pastor David Mendoza led a team of 13 on fire college age students to visit our church plants in Culiacan! This energized group hosted a young adults conference where all six of our Culiacan church plants came together for worship, encouragement, and fellowship! The leaders were also blessed to teach at several of our 2nd generation church plants on Sunday!

Each one of our 40+ congregants on these trips chipped in with their trip costs to raise money for their ministry projects and our church was also honored to give a large financial gift to support each event and work project on these trips. I love to brag about the Lord’s generosity and how our church sends out 18% of our total budget to support missions and church planting. A chunk of those funds are sent out every time we send out a short term missions teams!


      By the end of the calendar year, our church will have taken 15 of these church planting trips visiting our church plants and encouraging our church planters. If you have never been on a church planting trip I highly recommend it. And by the way, our church’s mission’s trips are open to everyone! (And yes, that includes you!)

Finally, I want to thank you for choosing to partner with us and support our family as your missionaries! We love sharing about the great things that God is doing here, and we share it with you because this is your spiritual fruit. We thank God for you and love you!  

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Vincent Family October 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

In this update I wanted to tell you an amazing story (or three) about some Godly young friends of mine and the amazing calling that God has placed on their lives! This young couple is going to be our next church planters and in this update I wanted to tell you all about their stories!

Brian De La Cruz and his family joined our church when Brian was only 9 years old when they arrived from Puebla Mexico! Brian grew up at our church, and began serving at a young age! Eventually, when his family decided to move back to South Mexico for economic reasons, we asked the family if our staff could adopt and raise Brian at the church! After the parents said yes, we moved Bryan into our church’s intern apartment (at our old building) and we happily received the youngest church intern in church history at only 16 years old.

We paid for Brian’s next three years of high school, while he served at the church in the evenings. During that time, Brian was trained up in the ministry, completed the early version of our church planting school, and became one of our church’s worship leaders.


            During those same years we had a new missionary family move into Rosarito from Wisconsin named the Struska’s. While they were serving full time at another ministry, this family quickly found a home at our church and they were great servants. This family of four joined us with a 10 year old daughter (Brittany) and a 7 year old son (Will). Their children became friends with our children and the other missionary kids on staff, while the parents quickly became some of our most trusted servants. They eventually joined our full time staff as well.

Eventually Brian and Brittany met in the youth group at church, and struck up a friendship that eventually blossomed into love! Shortly after that, these two faithful young believers were married and began serving the Lord together.


            When the opportunity arrived to be an assistant Pastor at one of our new local church plants, Brian and Brittany stepped out in faith and served there on full time staff for a number of years. During that time, they also had two children. But it was during that time, that God began to stir Brian and Brittany’s heart for church planting.

They also heard an opportunity from our church planter in Culiacan (Hugo Limon), that someone had donated a large piece of land for a church plant in a city called Calculalpan.  (Located about an hour from Mexico City in the state of Tlaxcala) Last year, Brian and Brittany went on a church planting vision tour of this city with Hugo, where God confirmed that He was calling them to church plant there!


      It was at that time, that Brian and Brittany resigned from their ministries at the church plant to come back home to Calvary Rosarito to spend a year training up with us, serving on staff, and re-taking the church planting course! Just last week, I was able to sit and have lunch with them and hear about the great calling that God has placed on their lives.

Mexico City (and its surrounding areas) is the 2nd largest city in the world, and this is the first church plant we will have planted in that area! I am planning to visit this area with them in the next few months for my own church planting vision tour, and then we are planning on having their sending service at our church in December. Shortly after that, the DeLaCruz family will leave everything behind and move to begin this venture of faith.  

            Seeing Brian and Brittany talk excitedly about their church planting vision with their two young children in tow, reminded me of Sarah and I and our church planting move here to Mexico over 20 years ago! I believe that God has a great calling on this couple, and I can’t wait to see what God is going to do through this, our 35th church plant! Please keep them in your prayers.

Finally, I want to thank you for choosing to partner with us and support our family as your missionaries! It is through your prayers that God meet’s our spiritual needs, and through your financial partnership, that God meet’s our physical needs. We thank God for you and love you!  

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless Brian and Brittany as they prepare to move and church plant in December.   

#2-  That God would help Sarah and I as we recently moved her father Ted down to live with us here in Mexico.   

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for the 50+ students we have enrolled in this semester’s church planting classes.  

#2- Praise God for a blessed visit in September to our church plant in the state of Chihuahua!

Vincent family September 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

This past month our church was blessed to host our 7th international church planting conference, and I am excited to tell you all about it! The title of this year’s conference was GO, and it was based on the great commission our Lord Jesus left us in Matthew 28! And the GOAL of this conference was to encourage and empower leaders to GO out and reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through church planting.

This year we had an amazing lineup of main speakers that I believe was our best yet! Our main teachers included seasoned veterans like Wes Bentley (Director of Far Reaching Ministries),  Don McClure (one of the founders of the Calvary Chapel Movement), and David Zamora, who Pastors one of our church planting partners, Living Way Christian fellowship in Fontana! And our conference wouldn’t be complete without some of the church planters we have sent out sharing the word. This year we heard from Hugo Limon (Culiacan), Tony Carranza (Mazatlan) , and Donny Aldana (Surprise Arizona) !

Each of these men gave spirit-filled teaching that uplifted and encouraged those in attendance. Speaking of attendance, this year, we had over 600 people show up for this free conference! I always leave these conferences feeling like I have attended a much-needed family reunion. So many of the church planters we have sent out fly in and join us, and it brings tears to my eyes to see them all grown up spiritually and doing an amazing job leading their local churches!

I was blessed to kick off the conference by giving teaching based on the church of Antioch in Acts 13. When you talk about church planting, the Antioch church is the gold standard as they sent out Paul and Barnabas on their church planting journeys. One of the main reasons God has prospered our ministry so much in this area is the church planting school that He has given us. Each year, more and more of our friends commit to using our materials to teach their servant leaders how their church can be a sending hub of church planting!

The entire philosophy of our church planting ministry is to freely share what God has freely given us. I am blessed that through our church’s generosity, we are able to not only make this large conference free of charge, along with all of the meals and materials, but we also make all of our church planting materials free of charge to anyone interested!

Getting back to the conference, besides the main teachings, we had 18 workshops that were informative and well attended! The most popular workshops are always our ladies’ workshops, and I am so thankful for my wife, Sarah, that always does a great job leading her workshop!

One of the highlights of the conference each year is we invite our guests to join us as we send out a new church plant together. At this year’s conference, we were blessed to send out my good friends Jose Luis and Sarah to the church plant in Ensenada. For two years, this young gifted couple and their three boys have made the one-hour drive north to our church to serve and complete our church planting program!

It was a great honor to send them and their 12-person core team out to plant their church in the key city of Ensenada! Located just 40 miles south of us, Ensenada is one of the largest cities in our state of North Baja (Population 600,000), and I believe that this church plant will soon be a sending hub of church planting to the surrounding areas.

Finally, I want to thank you for choosing to partner with us and support our family as your missionaries! We love to share about all that God is doing here because that is your spiritual fruit. We know that in these difficult times, it’s not easy to support missionaries. Yet you have stayed faithful in your partnership with us, and we thank God for you!

Con mucho Amor de Mexico (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1- That God would bless the preparation of our upcoming Israel trip in January of 2023! 

#2- That God would lead our newest group of church planters that began classes in August! (15 new students enrolled this semester!) 

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for a successful and blessed church planting conference!

#2- Praise God for our 34th church plant! (Calvary Chapel Familia, Ensenada Baja)

Vincent Family August 2022 Missions Update

Our church celebrated our 20-year reunion in July! To celebrate that, our staff asked me to write a history of me and our ministry over the past 20 years they put in a video available on my Facebook page! In this month’s update, I wanted to share with you our precious ministry partners the 20-year history of our church!

Pastor Mike Vincent was born in Germany to a US army father and mother! He grew up in Orange County, where his parents were faithful members of a denominational Christian church! Mike was a good boy that was raised in the church, and when Mike became a teenager, he and his brother Mitch started a New Wave Christian band that toured churches around Orange County, giving concerts!

After high school, Mike entered a Christian college to play College Basketball! It was halfway through his Bible college experience when God grabbed Mike’s heart and opened up His spiritual eyes. And it was on a Sunday morning when Mike walked forward during an altar call, gave his life to Jesus, and was born again!

Upon graduating, Mike started leading worship with his friend Trent Douglas at an outside backyard Bible study in Trent’s parent’s home. That Bible study eventually grew from 10 to 200 young people, and we saw God make an amazing move.

That backyard Bible study eventually became the church Calvary Chapel Saving Grace, located in Yorba Linda, California! It was at that church that Mike met his future wife, Sarah Lancaster! It was also during those days that Mike began to feel the call to the ministry!

Mike and Sarah both had the conviction, not to date, yet God did miracle after miracle to bring them together. Eventually, Sarah talked to Mike about the great desire God had placed in her heart to be a missionary to Mexico! Mike replied, “I LOVE Mexican food and am open to anything the Lord has, but I don’t believe I’m called to Mexico!” Sarah was hurt by that but she married Mike anyway, believing that if this was God’s will, He would change Mike’s heart!

After 3 years of marriage, that’s exactly what God did! Mike woke up one Sunday morning and told Sarah, “God is calling me to Mexico!” Sarah thought Mike was kidding, but Mike was deadly serious! They eventually shared this calling with the church leadership and then began to train up to be sent out! After two long years of ministry training, this young family of four was sent out by Calvary Chapel Saving Grace in July 2002 to a church plant in Rosarito Beach, Mexico!

I remember talking to a Pastor before we moved that told me, “Don’t church plant in Rosarito; it’s the hardest place in all of Mexico to church plant.” Yet Mike and Sarah and their two babies, Grace and Daniel, took the leap of faith and moved anyway. When they were sent out, Mike only knew three words of Spanish! (Burrito, Baño, and Taco) Thankfully, they were sent out with a small team of 5 adults, and they began the church meeting in the living room of a local house!

After 6 months, the church had grown up to 12 adults, and it was time to move to their first rented room! We found two cheap small rooms on Blvd. Guerrero and rented them for 400 dollars a month at the start of 2003! That little yellow strip mall was the home of Calvary Chapel Rosarito for the next 3 years! It was in those early days that God brought Pastor Jesus and Pastor Sabino and Laura, and many other faithful saints that remain at the church to this day! In those early days, the ministry was full of outreaches and crusades, and we saw God move powerfully!

By 2005, the small church had grown to 60 adults, and it was time to move again! We found a large strip mall around the corner up the street that was way beyond our budget! Yet God once again did a miracle, and He provided the finances for us to move in there!

That strip mall was our church home for the next 7 years! It was during that time that we started to see God saving people weekly and started our monthly baptisms. We also started our church planting school and sent out our first church plants in our time there. By God’s grace, our church grew from 60 to 600 adults during that time, and once again, we found our church bursting at the seams!

We asked our church to begin to pray, search, and give in a quest to find a large building that would fit our growing church’s needs! At the exact same time, our facility search began, and one of the largest factories in the city closed down! God opened the door, and in 2012 we began to renovate this 15,000-square feet facility, and little by little, it began to look like a church!

We have now been in our beautiful church facility for 10 years, and we are celebrating our 20-year anniversary together. The work God has done in and through Calvary Rosarito is a trophy of His grace! Not only has God allowed us to be a sending hub of church planting, but one of the largest and most fruitful churches in all of Mexico! This is way more than Mike and Sarah ever dreamed about in those early days of small things.

    The Bible teaches us in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Calvary Rosarito is an example of how God can use normal people that are willing to take steps of faith, and accomplish amazing things!

These past 20 years have been incredible and beyond my greatest dreams, but I am sure of one thing! The best is still yet to come! I love each one of you and am thankful that you are part of our church family at Calvary Rosarito!

Vincent Family June 2022 Update

Greetings from Mexico,

This month we finished our 14th year of our local church planting school and in this update, want to share with you the good news of what God is doing through this program! This year we had 43 students enrolled in our two weekly classes! (Both afternoon and evening courses)

Each one of these students are committed to serve at our local church weekly, complete a load of homework, and prepare and present a Bible teaching every Monday to their fellow students and their pastor/mentor. They are also open to and praying about being sent out to church plant or to be part of a church planting team!

Over the years, every one of our 34 church planters that have been sent out completed this program, and I believe that this year’s crop was our best group ever! One of the special blessings of this years class was numerous married couples taking the course together that are praying about being sent out!

I know that the idea of a church planting school based out of a local church is a strange thing, so I wanted to let you know what we do in these classes! The students begin each 2 ½ hour class by breaking into teaching groups, where they spread out across our church campus to teach a short Bible study in a small group setting. Upon finishing their teaching, the students get critiqued and receive constructive criticism from the rest of their group. The best part of this weekly teaching practicum, is we get to literally see these students improve before our very eyes!

During the final hour of the church planting class, we all gather together to be taught a topical sermon designed to equip and train them up to be sent out! These classes are taught by our staff pastors, as well as guest speakers. The classes I taught this semester included finances for the church planter, developing your CORE team, using humor and illustrations to capture your audience, and the blessings of women’s ministry! (And I was very careful on that one!)

After our students graduate, our Pastors gather to talk and pray about which ones we believe are ready to be sent out. It was a great blessing to see my good friends Jose Luis and Sarah graduate from our church planting program this semester. This gifted couple, along with their three young boys, have driven north from Ensenada every week for the last few years to serve at our church and attend our church planting class! Now God is preparing them to plant a church in Ensenada, a large city of over 600,000 that is located 50 miles south of us! Please keep them and their summer church plant (Calvary Family Ensenada) in your prayers!

One of the most exciting aspects of our church planting program, is now we have 9 of our church plants hosting their own church planting classes! To give them a helping hand,  this past year we began to professionally record all of our classes and teachings, and we have made them available to our church planters so they can use them as a resource for their own local classes!

In May, I was also blessed to travel up to Pomona with my good friend (and church planting assistant) Super Mario Medrano! We were part of the first ever Spanish church planting conference in Southern California! I was blessed to teach in Spanish about how any local church can start up a church planting school! The conference was fantastic, and the conference host Pastor Marvin Marroquin has agreed to start up his own church planting school in August! Please keep this new class based up in Southern California in your prayers!

 As I drove back to Mexico, I chuckled at the irony of what God allowed me to do! He called an American with no Spanish to move to Mexico, to then go back up to America to teach in Spanish! Only God could do something as crazy as that! 

A final blessing in May was to witness many Haitian Refugee’s begin to attend our church and profess faith in Christ for the first time! We have started two Haitian life groups (home groups) and we have a couple of these gentlemen praying about joining up with our church planting program next semester! I have a dream to plant a Haitian church (speaking Creole) in Tijuana to reach the 5,000 plus Haitians that live there! Will you please keep a future Haitian church plant in your prayers?

Finally, I want to thank you for choosing to partner with us and support our family as your missionaries! God has been so good to us, and we have been blessed to see so much spiritual fruit recently! And as we thank the Lord for that fruit, we also want to thank you our precious ministry partners. All of this spiritual fruit is yours! We love you, are praying for you, and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would raise up some Haitian men to join our church planting program and plant a church in Tijuana!  

#2-  That God would bless Jose Luis and Sarah as they plant their bilingual church in Ensenada this summer!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for our 14th graduating class from our church planting program!

#2- Praise God for the new church planting schools that we are blessed to be partnering with!

Vincent Family May 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

What a blessing it was to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ once again in April! There is nothing better than to be a part of a global movement of believers representing every tongue and tribe and nation celebrating our Savior conquering the power of Satan, Sin and death through His death, burial, and resurrection!

I love the message brought by the angels on that very first Easter morning found in Luke 24:5,  Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!” It is my prayer that you and your loved ones had a blessed time remembering that the tomb is empty, and that Jesus is alive! Our church had an amazing time celebrating this history changing event, and in this missions update I want to tell you all about it!

Our weekend began with a Good Friday shadow play focusing on the arrest and death of Jesus! A shadow play is a drama performed behind a backlit 50 foot wide sheet and performed with actors in shadows! This wonderful evening included a live choir, the old Apostle John as the narrator, and concluded with the saving message of the Gospel. On Good Friday we were blessed to witness several first time professions of faith!

With the pandemic seemingly behind us, our church staff made a great effort to make Easter Sunday our largest celebration yet! That included inviting our church’s many amazing cooks to bring their best dishes to church where we had a large food court for fellowship. We had at least 20 delicious Mexico themed culinary options to choose from! (I should know, I tried nearly all of them!)

My brother Mitch, his wife Joy, and their kids worked hard to cook kettle corn that we offered free to each and every person in attendance! We also had a famous clown named Evangelion (who just happens to be part of our church family) to provide a fun faith-based show to the children that reminded them of the true reason for Easter.


            The focus of the weekend was Jesus and the truth of His resurrection! I was blessed to teach the Easter story found in Luke Chapter 24! The title of my sermon was, “The Blessings of the Resurrection”, and I wanted to remind you of three blessings of Jesus’ resurrection for you! #1- The resurrection reminds us that there is victory on the other side of the trials of life.  #2- The resurrection reminds us that in the same way Jesus resurrected from the dead, we will too! And #3- The resurrection reminds us that JESUS IS ALIVE!

Personally for me as a pastor, it has been a battle to try and get our congregants to return to church after the difficulties of covid 19! I was pleasantly surprised that we had a (post-covid) record crowd of nearly 1500 in attendance at our three weekend services. The best part of that is that many of those were first time guests that responded to the invitation to accept Christ during the altar call at the end of the service!

On the family side of things, our family was blessed to celebrate our precious daughter Grace’s birthday at her favorite Korean BBQ place in Tijuana! We also held our annual Church Basketball Tournament and for the first time, Daniel knocked off his old man and won the tournament! The basketball torch has now been officially passed on and Daniel is the best hoopster in the Vincent family!

We ended the month of April by sending out our newest church planters! Victor and Griselda Parra were born again and then baptized in our church 7 years ago! They began serving, and then 3 years ago entered into our church planting school! After graduation, Victor became one of our assistant pastors, and he and his wife have led our important welcome center ministry with excellence over the past 2 years!

We were blessed to send them out to plant a church we call “Calvary Los Pampanos.” (The Branches) They are literally planting this local church in their backyard, as their neighborhood in West Tijuana has over 20,000 people living there with only one small Christian church! Please keep this newest church plant in your prayers!

Finally, I want to thank you once again for choosing to partner with us and support our family as your missionaries! It is through your financial support that God meets our physical needs, and through your prayers, that God meets our spiritual needs.  We love you, are praying for you,  and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That those many that professed faith during Easter will continue at our church so we can disciple them!

#2-  That God would bless our newest church plant in Tijuana, Calvary Los Pámpanos!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for a fruitful Resurrection celebration during Easter!

#2- Praise God for allowing us to send out our 33rd church plant in April!

Vincent Family April 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

This past month I was so blessed as March was packed full of church planting adventures.  The month began with our church plant in Mazatlan hosting their annual church planting conference! (Sadly I missed this conference for the first time, as I was officiating my cousin Steve’s funeral) At that conference, our ministry was blessed to send out our next two 2nd generation church plants!

Calvary Culiacan sent out their sixth church plant, Calvary Patria (Patria means “the Fatherland” in Spanish) in Culiacan! Then next, Calvary Maranatha in Mazatlan sent out their 2nd church plant (Calvary Chapel Stone Island) a bilingual church plant 20 minutes away from their sending church! Each one of these church plants is led by an exciting young couple that graduated from our local schools of church planting!

I was also blessed to visit two of our 1st generation church plants! My church planting assistant (Super) Mario Medrano and I have had plans fall through again and again to visit our 4 year old church plant in Monterrey! (The 3rd largest city in Mexico) This city had the most stringent rules in regards to covid, and because of that, the church was closed down for over 1 ½ years! Throughout that trial, our church planters Pedro and Amparo and their five children, have stayed strong over that time, and praise God we were able to keep supporting them financially to keep them on their feet!

Six months ago, they re-opened the church in a new more strategic location! I traveled with a team of four, and we hosted a conference we titled “the greatest commandment!” This conference was focused on loving God, and loving your neighbors around you! We had over 50 adults in attendance and we were honored to host a Carne Asada BBQ to celebrate with them!

The following night,  I taught their midweek service on my favorite topic, The SENDING HUB!” Our desire for our church plants is to not only plant churches, but plant churches that plant other churches! (We call that,  “A SENDING HUB!”)  The most exciting aspect of this trip was it was all in Spanish! That means that this gringo taught two sermons in Spanish! (And I only butchered a couple words! LOL!)  

At the end of the month, we took another ministry team to visit our one year old church plant in Hermosillo Sonora! (The next state over from Baja) On this trip, we flew in a couple of our other church planters and we hosted the first church planting conference in the history of this great state!

The title of the conference was  “GO” and we had a great turnout of local pastors that joined us to learn about God’s heart for church planting! Once again I was blessed to teach in Spanish, and encourage our friends in Hermosillo to reach this entire city of 1 million with Spirit filled Bible teaching churches that plant other churches!

After the conference, our church hosted a church planting dinner with 10 of our church planters that had flown in. I nearly welled up with tears seeing my good friends that had all at one time been my Assistant Pastors, but have now been sent out to the mission field and are planting churches and encouraging other pastors.

On Sunday, I was blessed to teach at Calvary Hermosillo.  It was an amazing experience to see the growing congregation in action, along with the team of 6 servants that we sent here.  We ended the day hosting another all you can eat BBQ, and the fellowship was so special, that  we didn’t get out of the church until after 3pm!

You’ve probably noticed that I love talking about the great work that God is doing here through church planting. But the reason I write about it so often is because all of this is YOUR SPIRITUAL FRUIT!  As Paul the Apostle wrote in 1st Corinthians 3:6, “I planted, Apolos watered, and God gave the increase!” This verse is a reminder that together, we are separate but equal partners in the ripe harvest fields of the Lord! We love you, are praying for you,  and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Vincent Family March 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

This past month was a busy one for me and the ministry! In February, I was blessed to travel and visit 6 of our ministry partners and update them on the great work that the Lord is doing here in Mexico! At the beginning of the month, I traveled up to central California to visit our friends at Calvary Nexus in Camarillo, Anthem chapel in Goleta, and Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara!

Later on, in the middle of the month I got to travel with my best friend (and wife) Sarah to Florida to visit our church plant, the Rock Calvary and our church planters Aaron and Robbyn Smith in Punta Gorda Florida! Finally,  at the end of the month I traveled up to my home town of Orange County and visited CCWestgrove in Garden Grove, and Living Way Christian fellowship in Fontana!

Each one of these six churches are partners with our ministry in church planting, and many of them support our family as their missionaries as well. Visiting these churches and pastors reminded me of the great partnership we have with not only churches, but with precious friends like you that allow us to serve full time here on the mission field of Mexico!

Sadly our extended family suffered a tragic loss this month as well. My cousin Steve Wilson was always my favorite cousin growing up as we were not only the same age, but we had much of the same interests! It was always a child hood highlight when our family made the long drive north over the grapevine to visit our cousins that lived in Shafter!

            Later on, my cousin Steve played electric guitar in Mine and Mitch’s Christian band New Faith! After High School, Steve moved down to Yorba Linda to live with our family to see where our music could take us. As inevitably happens, life went on and we eventually went our  separate ways, got married, had children, and started our separate careers. As a career Steve was my one cousin that chose to follow my Grandpa and Uncle into the crop-dusting business.

          Over the past 20 years, every time I would see Steve at our family gatherings, I would invite him to come down to visit our church in Mexico and we would joke about a “New Faith Reunion” as he would join me on stage and help lead our congregation in worship. For many years, that reunion was only a dream until last November. Just three months ago Steve made it down and joined my brother Mitch and my son Daniel for a weekend worship set at our church! My parents also drove down to witness that long dreamed of reunion finally take place.

          We had such a great weekend together, Steve drove down two more times in January to join us at church here in Rosarito.  Steve even began to talk about joining us full time down here when he retired. Sadly, on February 16th we got the shocking news that Steve had been killed on the job when his cross-dusting helicopter crashed!

            My cousin leaves behind a wife, 4 children, and several grandchildren. Although the loss is painful, I was blessed to text back and forth with Steve on the final day of his life. We talked about God and prayer, and his next trip down to Mexico!  One of the great blessings for me, is the love for Jesus and the church that I saw in the heart of Steve on those three final trips down to Mexico. I feel blessed and honored that the Lord allowed me and my brother Mitch to have those final visits together before He took Steve home to heaven!

 Once again, I want to thank you for your partnership with our family here in Mexico. It is through your prayers that God meets our spiritual needs, and through your financial giving that God meet’s our physical needs. We love you, are praying for you,  and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would strengthen and comfort our family and help me as I lead up my cousin Steve’s funeral on March 4th!

#2-  That God would bless the 3 church plants we have planned in the rest of 2022!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for the blessed church planting partnerships with the 6 churches I was blessed to visit with in February.  

#2- Praise God for the new ministry partnerships He has brought together.

Vincent Family February 2022 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

One of the great blessings of being part of a church-planting sending hub, is the opportunity to go out and visit the churches we have planted! The Apostle Paul is our model, and we do our best to pattern our church planting activities on what Paul did on his church planting journeys in the book of Acts!


 One of my favorite verses in the bible is Acts 15:36. We read there, “Then after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us now go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.”  Paul began his 2nd missionary (church-planting) journey with a plan to go out and visit and encourage the churches that he had planted on his first journey with Barnabas! In January, I was blessed to travel with 3 good friends from our church and do that same thing!

Our 4-man missions team flew out from Tijuana headed to our 2 year old church plant outside of Mexico City in a city called Tulancingo! This traditional city of 250,000 is famous for being the most important wool textile producer in the country, and it was also home to El Santo, Mexico’s most famous lucha libre wrestler. But our purpose for traveling there was to visit our church planters (Federico and Jenny) and the church they have planted there!

We were blessed to host a marriage conference at their beautiful church facility and I led worship as well! Besides encouraging the marriages, and hosting a delicious dinner of regional cuisine,  we were blessed to see 4 first-time professions of faith at the end of the evening. Praise the Lord!

After leaving Tulancingo, we visited the historic Pyramid of the Sun on the road to Mexico City! This pyramid is the third largest in the world (758 feet tall) and was built in the year 200BC! This trip to Mexico City was especially powerful for my friend (and CCR staffer Abraham) who on this trip got to visit his mother’s hometown for the first time in his life!

Our church planting team hopped on an early flight out of Mexico City to fly to our next destination in Campeche! Campeche City is the capital of the small state of Campeche and is part of the famous Yucatan Peninsula! The area is beautiful and tropical, but our trip centered on our church planters Miguel and Liliana and their 3 year old church plant!

After 3 years of faithfully laboring, Miguel has begun his own church planting class and our missions team was down there to host a regional church planting conference! Upon landing, we hooked up with my good friend (and church planter from Culiacan) Hugo Limon to host the first church planting conference in the history of the Yucatan Peninsula! Unfortunately, when we landed we got the bad news that our Church planter Miguel was out with covid and would not be available to host the conference!

We prayed for Miguel, and then stepped out in faith to host and lead the conference ourselves! We were blessed as over 25 pastors traveled to this conference from 100 miles away, along with the congregants that are enrolled in Miguel’s local church planting class! The church planting conference was a great blessing to our new friends, and they have invited us back to host a conference next year in their city of Merida!

On the trip I was blessed to teach at the churches at their Sunday services and lead worship as well!

As I meditated on the great privilege of following in the giant footsteps of the Apostle Paul, I was reminded that he did not travel alone when he went on his journeys! Paul traveled with friends, and he also had supporters and partners that supported and believed in him, and sent him on his way through prayer and financial support!

 I feel so blessed and honored to have partners like you that believe in the great work that God is doing here in the mission field of Mexico. (Not only through our local ministry here in Rosarito, but through the church plants as well!) We love you, are praying for you,  and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would protect our family and church in these difficult times!  

#2-  That God would bless our new church planting class, and the 6 church planting classes that are beginning in our church plants!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for a blessed church planting journey to Tulancingo and Campeche!

#2- Praise God for good health for our family so far in 2022!

November 2021 Vincent Family Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

In this update, I wanted to let you know about what God has been doing in the life of my precious son Daniel!

Daniel recently turned 19, and he is in the middle of taking a gap year between his high school graduation and entering Bible college! And Daniel is involved in a number of exciting ministries and activities that I wanted to let you know about.

As many of you know, Daniel was less than a month old when he joined us on the mission field of Mexico! That means that he has lived his entire life here, and Daniel is (and always has been) the most Mexican of us all in the family! And although Daniel loves and honors his American heritage, I don’t believe that Daniel will ever leave Mexico to move to the United States to live.

Three months ago, Daniel tried out for our local professional basketball team, the BEACH, Rosarito! To my pleasant surprise, Daniel made the team and signed a professional contract! Although the level of play here is far below the NBA, this is a serious league where the players sign contracts, travel to other cities and states all expenses paid, and charge to watch their games! 

The BEACH is in their first year in this Northern Mexico Regional League and they have taken some bumps and bruises during their games! But Daniel is seeing this as an important learning experience. Daniel is now 6 foot 3 and dunking the ball with ease (UNLIKE his dad used to) and has a fantastic three point shot! (LIKE his dad used to)  He has a great attitude whether he gets a lot of playing time or not, and we are very proud of him in this big step of faith he has taken to join this professional league.

Daniel has also continued with his private music lessons throughout this pandemic! Daniel is very gifted musically, and is presently taking weekly vocal and guitar lessons from one of our young worship leaders. I believe that God has a call to full time ministry for my son, and I know that God can and will use his being a multi -talented musician to accomplish His will.

Daniel continues to be one of our main keyboard players in the worship teams during our primary services in the sanctuary. I have had the blessing of having him join me on my worship numerous times, and I have to admit that he puts much more time than his old man does in preparing and practicing! One of the greatest joys of my life is presenting the message of salvation at the end of a sermon, while Daniel is by my side playing the keyboards!

The area of Daniel’s life I am most proud of is his spiritual development! The Bible says in 3rd John 1:4, “I have no greater joy than my children walk in the truth!” I can give a loud a hardy “AMEN” to that statement, and I am thankful for my son and the love he has for our Lord!  

Daniel’s primary plan for the next two years is joining the excellent Calvary Chapel Bible College located in the hills of Ensenada (just an hour south of us) in January! This bilingual program is designed to train up young people not only for Christian living but the full time ministry! I believe that God is going to use these two years of Bible training to reveal to Daniel the calling that He has for his life. Please keep Daniel’s Bible College plans in your prayers!

Finally, we wanted to thank you once again for your love and prayers and support! Sadly, we have seen many missionary friends whose support has withered away over the years. But we are so thankful that God has raised up a group of generous partners that give sacrificially so that we can serve full time in the ripe mission fields of Mexico. We love you and thank God for you! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless our upcoming Christmas events and outreaches!

#2-  That God would bless Daniel and his plans to enter Bible College in Ensenada in January!    

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for Daniel and his spiritual growth!  

#2- Praise God for the numerous blessings of being a church planting hub! (Presently 31 first generation church plants, 7 second generation, and 1 third generation)
