Finding Jesus at local faith conference

HARLINGEN — A faith conference this past week was aimed at sharing the word of God and bringing people to Jesus.

“Its been incredible. People have been coming from around the world,” said Kevin Ortiz, senior pastor at Faith Pleases God Church.

The Harlingen church held its annual seven-day Faith Conference. It drew spiritual leaders from around the world, nation and state to share the word of God with people in the area.

Ortiz said the theme of the conference was creative faith — by believing in God anything is possible.

“We started last Sunday and we’ve been going every night,” Ortiz said. “We would love to see more people come who are really searching for God.”

Ortiz said the conference has gone beyond his desire and God has moved people, helped grow their relationship with God.
