Sometimes life has a way of detouring people off of their God given path. And when that happens, it’s not always easy to find our way back. As a matter of fact, sometimes people never find their way back. However, there is a way we can help guide people back in the direction. And it is as simple as this… Reach 1.
Anthony and Sasha Torres, are the lead Pastors at Mountain View Church in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Together, they have been in full time ministry since 2013. Their passion? Reaching those who are lost on the streets through the work of outreach ministry. Pastor Anthony has a Masters degree in Christians Counseling from Cornerstone University. He has since implemented his experiences and education into his passion and now leads a bible based Recovery program called “New Life Recovery” for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addictions. Now that’s truly praiseworthy!
By God’s grace and unfailing mercy, Pastor Anthony Torres has been sober for nearly 11 years. His past demons of drugs and alcohol have been put under his feet. Hallelujah! Furthermore, since Anthony and his lovely wife Sasha took over the Pastoral leadership of Mountain View Church in 2015, the Lord has graciously grown the members in attendance from 20 parishioners to over 300 on any given Sunday morning. Can we can an amen!?
The vision of Pastor Anthony and his first lady Sasha Torres is very powerful, but yet so simple. It consists of a Heavenly principal that even the Lord Himself applied while walking the earth thousands of years ago. And that principal is this: Reach 1 person that others might over look. And while your reaching that 1 person, expect the Lord’s healing and restoration power to intervene in those people’s lives.
Anthony and Sasha have been married for 20 years now and have 4 amazing children, 3 beautiful daughters and one handsome son. Two of their daughters are serving in the ministry of Mountain View church along side their parents. They continue to express their excitement of reaching their city for the Glory of the God they both love and serve. If you’re ever in or near Alamogordo, New Mexico, be sure to visit Mountain View Church.
