Manuel & Laura Vivanco


We are serving in Southern Mexico, planting churches through Mexico’s National Baptist Conference.

We work in church planting and leadership development primarily in Mexico City’s greater metropolitan area. In addition to the main church in Chiconautla, where I am the senior pastor and from which church-planting teams are sent out, our network includes churches in La Presa, Tizayuca, Héroes Tecámac, and Nicolás Romero. We also have active church plants in Zumpango and in the Mixtec area of Puebla, Mexico. Key leaders from network churches meet regularly with the Chiconautla staff for prayer and study. Leadership interns shadow experienced leaders and gain hands-on experience in ministry before taking on any particular leadership role.

We have five children: Emily and Caleb (graduates of Biola University), Kelly (a student at Westmont College), Nicolas, and Bethany. The kids are also active in ministry and the younger two do school at home.


Prayer Requests:

  • For those hearing the Gospel in Puebla and Zumpango and through each of our churches, that many will come to Christ and be transformed in Him.
  • For our leaders to continually grow in Christian character, spiritual maturity, and integrity.For the construction of the new church building in Chiconaulta: for building permits to be obtained, and that construction will be completed in a timely manner.
