Tony & Cathy Gutierrez
The Door
Harlingen, TX


My name is Tony Gutierrez. My wife, Cathy and I assumed responsibility of the Harlingen church on November 10th 2013. We were announced out of the San Antonio Conference. It has been a privilege to link hearts with the saints of God. Early in 2014 we began a bible study, got  our music scene, Backstage, started, helped a number of pioneer churches with impact teams and concerts and we also scheduled several revivals. We began to see people, especially teens, rise up and contend to do things for God. People were stirred to give towards the remodeling of our building. This year we began an adult bible study with our Door Directors,  Roy & Kristal Lozano, as the leaders and we were able to appoint another couple, Noe & Michelle Galaviz as assistants. God has been helping Noe & Michelle, for the first time in years they have been faithfully serving God together. We also started a Youth Bible Study, my wife and I are leading it. I am challenging the youth to have their own relationship with Jesus Christ and make up their minds on who they are going to serve. Recently we began to hold fasting and prayer meetings every Monday. We had been praying for unity in the church, men to rise up, God to do an accelerated work, wisdom with finances and against the spirit of barrenness. We have seen God begin to help us in these areas. We are even planning an invasion  team to Cancun this July. Continue to pray for us as we pray for you. Taking the Rio Grande Valley for Jesus.
