Honduras is located in the heart of Central America

Honduras is one of the most beautiful countries in Central America, but at the same time is the 2nd poorest nation in the western hemisphere. Many find themselves struggling to find a stable job, get an education, afford health care and fulfill their spiritual needs. Many years ago, the Lord called us to Honduras with a special mission: reach out to the millions of Hondurans with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Las Iglesias Comunidad de Amor, Internacional (Community of Love Ch.) was started in 2001 by Dr. Hector Newman. To date, over 20 churches are in fellowship in three regions of Honduras: in the south, west, and north part of the country.

Our current projects include: finishing the church building, finishing the second phase of the Danli School, as well as the new big project, "La Granja del Niño" (Children's Home), for 100 kids.

Who We Are

Dr. Hector Newman was born in Honduras and emigrated to the U.S. in 1966 with his family; he finished High School in Boston, MA. He felt a call to ministry and went to San Jose, Costa Rica, where he received his Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.) from the Latin American Biblical Seminary.

He returned to the U.S. and completed both his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) in Pastoral Counseling from Boston University and his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in Marriage and Family Counseling from the New England Bible Institute in conjunction with Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was ordained by the American Baptist Churches of MA on November 6, 1976.

Dr. Newman's ministry has covered Costa Rica, Boston, MA, Melbourne, FL, and Honduras. He planted more that 37 churches throughout these years.

He shares his life and home with his wife Nubia and their five children.
