from all parts of the county.

 

Mr. Coventon was a splendid old man. He came to this county when a young man from Georgia, and has spent most of his life here. He was

a good Christian and no one in need ever went away without his help. He was a good father and a good husband, and his friends were

legion.

 

The Bulletin joins the rest of his friends in extending deep sympathy to the bereaved." (Last updated: 21/07/2001 12:46:55)

prayer, Bible teaching, counselling, etc.). We have seen the church grow from 400 to more than 4000 believers and we have trained

leaders to continue with our local work. The church in Tegucigalpa has nearly 500 home groups throughout the city. Most new believers are

added to the church through home group evangelism; home groups being the back bone of church growth in all the Amor Viviente

congregations.

 

In 1982 we established the first Christian Print Shop in Honduras which has grown into the Interdenominational Christian Education Center

(ICEC), providing audio, video and printed teaching materials to churches throughout the country.

 

During our annual week of prayer and fasting in January 1988, the Lord spoke to us about starting a Christian Radio Station in Tegucigalpa.

For the next several months we worked and prayed to make this vision a reality. In early 1989 I left my work with the ICEC in the hands of

people I had trained and moved full-time into the position of Technical Director of our Radio station where I continued preparations for

getting on-the-air.

 

In June 1989 we took a step of faith by purchasing our equipment and in September our radio station license received approval. After

remodelling the studios and installing the equipment, we went on-the-air December 22, 1989. Difusora Cristiana de Radio (DCR) 940 kHz

AM, is a Christian station that reaches the one million people of Tegucigalpa with the good news of Jesus Christ.

 

Part of our vision was to establish stations in major cities of Honduras. In late 1992, two more stations were added: FM 103 in Tegucigalpa

and 1520 AM in San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras. In February 1994 our newest station, FM 104 signed on in the coastal

city of La Ceiba. I am the Technical Director of what is now known as "Sistema DCR", four Christian radio stations with well over two million

people in our listening area. It is important to note that, though I did all the planning and installation of these stations, the Amor Viviente

churches in Honduras financed them without outside help."

"Dan Coventon, TCF missionary and missions mobilizer and trainer - to speak at the TCF Missions Conferencerence kickoff meeting,

Sunday Feb 23 2020

 

Dan and his wife Mary Lu were released into full time missions service by TCF in 1978, and have since served largely in Honduras, where

they have served in local church development though evangelism and discipleship, radio broadcasting, and a variety of other ministries. In

recent years, Dan and Mary Lu have developed a national and international ministry in mobilizing churches for the Great Commission. Dan

says, "Honduras is a reached nation, but not a sent nation." With the goal of sending Latin missionaries around the world, they are working

with an international interdenominational group called Simply Mobilizing to encourage churches in Honduras, Central America, and across

the Spanish speaking world to fulfill the call of God to reach the nations. They work with all churches, using courses and programs that are

specifically designed to form a Biblical worldview. Dan works in Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru and Spain while Mary Lu focuses more on

ministry in Honduras. They are passionate about seeing missional churches developed throughout the world. Their heartís desire is to see a

mobilization movement in Latin American churches equipping and facilitating Godís people to be on mission with Him, both in their own

culture and in the unreached nations." (Last updated: 05/11/2021 12:46:06)

Director of the Children's Ministry, which through dynamic evangelism and teaching grew to over 100 Bible Clubs ministering to two

thousand children weekly. In 1989 I left the Children's Ministry in the hands of people who had been with me almost since the beginning. I

then spent one year working in the new DCR radio station organizing and categorizing the music library.

 

Starting in 1990 I was the Director of Music Ministry at Amor Viviente, Tegucigalpa, emphasizing the renewal of praise and worship, and

street evangelism through Christian music. This ministry grew to include:

 

Praise and Worship teams, Christian bands, Vocal groups and soloists

 

The Lord provided numerous opportunities for us to minister in the church and outside of the church through:

 

Christian open-air concerts, Praise and Worship Seminars, Ministry through praise and worship in other congregations, The recording of

five Christian music cassettes which have spread throughout Central America

 

After twelve fruitful years in Tegucigalpa, we felt that the Lord was calling us to make a move and to work with the Amor Viviente

congregation in San Pedro Sula to assist in the establishing and edifying of that local church body. Dan continues as the Technical Director

of the four Christian radio stations (which requires much travel), but all our local service is poured into the San Pedro Sula church.

 

We have been in San Pedro since January, 1995. Our involvement includes praise and worship ministry, radio programs, teaching in

seminars and preparing teaching materials for use in our church home groups. As the San Pedro Sula church grows, we are looking

forward to the new challenges of service and ministry and invite you to participate with us through your prayers and giving. Your faithful

support allows us to strengthen the Body of Christ in Honduras and you share in the fruit of this Ministry. (Last updated: 30/07/2001 21:14:38)
