Bill & Connie
Bill and Connie McDonald have ministered in Latin America since 1989. During their first term Bill and Connie pioneered a church in Cuenca, Ecuador. The church, Centro Cristiano, has now grown to over 4000 attendants each Sunday, and more than 50 daughter churches throughout the Andean Region of Ecuador. Additionally, Bill and Connie lead the Assemblies of God's Latin America Child Care program to plant schools with a Christ-centered focus throughout Ecuador. In 2002 Centro Cristiano was placed under the leadership of Ecuadorian nationals as Bill and Connie heeded the Lord's call in other forms of ministry. In April 2003, Bill founded Unsión Television Network International. Founded as a small, volunteer-based firm, Unsión is now an international organization that broadcasts programming with a Biblical worldview throughout the Americas and Caribbean. Unsión Network is a commercial communications company that offers family value programming in an industry overrun with vulgar, lewd, and graphic programming. Upon its inception, Unsión had the possibility of reaching more than 500,000 Hispanics living in and around Cuenca, Ecuador. Unsión can now touch 500,000,000 Hispanics across the Americas with moral, family value programming thanks to modern day technology and satellites. Unsión is growing in viewer size all through Ecuador daily. Cities throughout Ecuador and the rest of Latin America are waiting for the resources to broadcast Unsión in their community. The technology is available to reach half-a-billion people with a Biblical-centered worldview as soon as the resources are put into place.
