Shalom Iglesia del Pacto grew out of the work of Servant Partners in San Jose. In 2014, Andy and Janet Singleterry, the SP site leaders, had been leading a bilingual Bible study for a couple years. Jairo and Lourdes Sarmiento came from Honduras to join their team and started a weekly prayer meeting. A group of Servant Partners interns were hosting a youth group at their house. Those three elements combined to form Shalom Iglesia in October of 2014, with the Sarmientos and Singleterrys as the pastoral team. We began weekly worship services a few months later. At our founding, we identified love, justice, and peace as our core values, and we do our best to follow God by living out these values in all we do.
