To say I’m excited is a slight understatement: on November 1, Oscar Benavides joins FiveTwo Network as our new Vice-President of Strategic Initiatives!
This new role will help us discern God’s “Yes” and “No” as we grow and will also bring entrepreneurial wisdom as Jesus leads us into new geographies in the United States.
I’ve known Oscar for over a decade, have partnered with him on a number of mission efforts, and love him dearly.
He possesses an incredible heart for Jesus and His people – especially those far from God – and is a man of integrity in every sense of the word.
Oscar’s work with the DeVos Foundation in equipping young, urban leaders has provided him with a great wealth of knowledge for reaching cities with the Gospel.
His entrepreneurial leadership at LINC, North Texas expanding that ministry into the public schools of Dallas and Denton counties demonstrated true missionary wisdom that opened the door for the Good News of Jesus to be heard and received.
His heritage brings much-needed expertise as we partner with our Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters in bringing Jesus to their communities.
And, of course, he’s simply a lot of fun!
As we continue to help individuals launch startups that are sustainable and result in more people knowing Jesus…
As we continue to help congregations plant churches or replant their current ministries…
And as we continue to help church bodies equip their entrepreneurial members so that an abundance of new Gospel expressions thrive in their region…
The FiveTwo Network is blessed – I am blessed – to have this wonderful leader and man of God join our executive team.
Please join me in thanking Jesus for the blessing Jesus will bring to His Church through Oscar Benavides!
