Otoniel Mendoza leads Latin American NexGen Team by directing and implementing the DCPI NexGen strategy to inspire next generation leaders to embrace church planting ministry.
The ultimate goal is to train leaders to plant churches, fulfilling the vision of planting 5 million churches worldwide.
How did God call you to DCPI?
“Seeking to be faithful to the call that God has made us as His disciples and the legacy that has been given to us by grace of God and thanks to the Mendoza Jimenez Family we could know DCPI.
As marriage (Otoniel and Joice, Mendoza Rivas Family) have decided to work exclusively for God in the past; all this to serve Him with a greater focus and efficiency.
We could serve God being in Venezuela, Brazil and Paraguay participating in church plantings. After that God put us in the heart take a step of faith, and although we are very young, we know that if He wants to use us, He will do this with us, through us and despite us.
He has allowed us and guided us to work with different churches in Latin America with DCPI LA Team and DCPI NexGen LA. We are grateful for that and for the Vision of Equipping leaders to plant 5 million dynamic churches to reach the world for Christ.”
What is your personal vision statement, or life scripture?
Life Scripture: Matthew 28:19-20 NIV – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
What excites you about what God is doing around the world?
“I am really enjoying what God is doing with the youths of all continents in the world.
Everyday, He gives me the opportunity of live the great movements of the youth in Latin America that are committed to serve and plant new churches and spread the gospel around all the world.
He is our savior and has given us the Great Commission as His disciples. This is our challenge!”
What miracles have you seen God perform?
“I have seen miracles of God in people’s lives. A lot were lost and now by the grace of God, are found.
One of the best testimonies I’ve heard of is Doña Fatima’s. She was a spiritist in her neighborhood in Uberlandia, Brazil. And with a single decision of follow Jesus, God changed everything in her life. She became a new creation. Now, she is an evangelist in her neighborhood and she shared with me this testimony of life changing while we were on a mission trip to Brazil.”
