Sure hope he has more vision than Cortes if our youth ministry is to continue to grow as it greatly did under the leadership of Cortes

Dear Pastor Peralta -

The talent and dedication exhibited in Greater New York is a testament to the blessing of God. Pastor Jose Cortes, Jr. has left a wonderful legacy here in New York City and with your spirit and positive motivation for the youth of Greater New York, God has once again blessed our youth with a fine leader.

May you be blessed by looking at the faces of the future church and lead them to know Christ only as the focus for their lives.

Blessings to you.

Best regards, Tony Romeo, Pastor / REACH-NYC

I met Andres Peralta while studying my bachelor in Puerto Rico and I am pleased that the Lord has guided him all this time. I pray that he can keep on exhalting the name of our creature in all that he does. He's truly a child of God. I know that your church will be blessed.
