Javier Rios Martinez
Working as director and pastor with the Fellowship and Faith ministry, Rev. Rios Martinez says that the goal is "to build a Hispanic community of faith". Various types of social programs are available through the ministry as it endeavors to help the Hispanic/Latino community in Topeka.

”I was a pastor for 20 years in the Mexican Methodist Church in Mexico,”he shares. ”I started to pray for a different path in my ministry and that’s when I received the call from a good friend and clergy inviting me to be part of a missionary project in the U.S. to develop a Hispanic ministry.”
