Centro Crtistiano Weinfelden is directed by Andreas Lange and Johana Lange-Rochels León and belongs to the missionary extension of the church Centro Cristiano International (Assemblies of God), located in the Los Pinos neighborhood of the city of Cúcuta, Colombia, founded in 1975 by missionary and pastor José Satirio Dos Santos and his wife, Pastor Nair de Andrade Dos Santos, of Brazilian origin. Today the church has around 500 daughter congregations in different parts of the world such as Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, America, Asia and Europe.

In November 2019, the couple of Pastors Fausto Jimenez and Neliete Viegas, from Colombia were with us in Switzerland for three weeks. After many years of cooperation in the area of children’s projects and preaching ministries on our part in Colombia, the Weinfelden congregation Centro Cristiano was born. We see in this a wonderful guidance from God and a complement to the pastoral ministry to our evangelistic and missionary ministry.
