A new commandment I give to you that you love one another: just as I have loved you.
After several years of evangelism, bible studies, and street ministry; Pastors, Luis and Rose Maldonado established The Touch of the Master Ministries. Pastors Luis and Rose Maldonado discovered the need in the Body of Christ for the experience of God and manifestation of the kingdom on earth. During various outreach missions, the pastors began to see a need for the love of God and the Love that God gives to man. They believed that we are called to be a light for those in darkness by showing the Love of the Father in all we do and say. The focus of the ministry is based on John 13:34. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
In 2014, the pastors began conducting regular outreaches in York City, PA. As they ministered in the streets of their local city, they used the ministry to provide assistance to community agencies and shelters while sharing the message of hope and love of Jesus Christ to the people.
In 2015, they began holding bible studies in different homes around the city while continuing their outreach mission. Through those gatherings, they were able to share the love of God and begin equipping the Body of Christ with the knowledge and tools needed to experience all that God has in store for us. Their focus on family fostered an atmosphere of restoration and healing and they were able to grow friendships and see lives changed by the love of God.
Matthew 28:18-20: Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
In 2016, the ministry was moved to a local church, which provided a new platform for the ministry to share the Gospel of Christ. During this opportunity, The Touch of the Master Community Church was conceived. The pastors believe that there needs to be a singular place where all are welcome to experience the love of God no matter the race, language, circumstances, or denomination. Thus, a building was purchased in the center of the City of York which was used to launch The Touch of the Master Community Church.
Currently, the bilingual community church services Spanish and English languages but hopes to grow the congregation and languages provided in the near future. The Touch of the Master Community Church was founded on the principle of experiencing God and following the new commandment given to us by God, “Love one another the way I have loved you…”. With the focus on family restoration, self-restoration, healing, prophecy, and applying kingdom principles to one's life the church hopes to foster a change in the city of York, PA.
1 Peter 2:9-10: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
As a result of the change, the church provides various opportunities of support to the congregation and city by providing mentorship, counseling, and consulting to individuals and various agencies/shelters. Ministries served under the church are Gibborim Men (Men’s Ministry), Women of Purpose (Women’s Ministry), Kingdom Kids (Children’s Ministry), The Touch of the Master Inc (Nonprofit Outreach Program), and Heart of the King (Youth Ministry).
The Touch of the Master Ministries has 5 Pillars of the Ministry which is taught and encouraged within the congregation. We believe these 5 pillars can be used to further the kingdom and grow the Body of Christ.
