VIVA Stories

It’s a blessing to share the stories of members of VIVA Church whose lives have been made new through the love of Christ and his Church.

God's Perfect Timing

back entrance to building

Every weekend for the last 4 years we have been having our worship services in a school, setting up and tearing down before and after our services. As we’ve been praying, we have sensed this is the time and believe this is the place to be able to expand our reach and provide more opportunities during the week to better serve our community.

Our Story

We began as a small Hispanic group at City Church International. In June 2012 we started our Latino church service in Spanish. Six years later, we were planted as an independent church as Viva Church International. In March 2018, we had our first service as a mobile church, renting space in a school building. (We are so grateful to East Grand Preparatory for their generosity and support during this time.) Now in 2021 we have the opportunity to buy a building and have a permanent home for  our VIVA family.

We have seen the power of God move in the lives of  thousands of people through our weekly services, Bible studies, home groups, radio broadcasts, as well as marriage and parenting seminars.  We see a growing need to continue reaching out and helping our Hispanic community grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.  Knowing Christ is what enables us to offer the best of our family centered culture and our strong work ethic to this country.  Understanding His kingdom  makes it possible to grow in  serving, giving, and loving others as Christ loves us.

New Facilities

We are excited that after months of negotiations, we have a new church home under contract in an excellent location in Dallas. This building has recently been remodeled and is in very good condition overall.

Would you prayerfully consider giving generously to support what God is doing to raise up spiritually strong Latino families at VIVA Church Int’l?

We invite you to financially sow in good soil and collaborate with us to continue reaching our community here in Dallas with the Good News of the Gospel.

Sanctuary Remodel

We thank you for your love and support for the Latino Community and for God's Kingdom

Romans 10:14-15 NLT

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? 15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”[a]

We have a call to reach the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Our primary call is to the Hispanic Community here in the United States. We have shared God's love and the power of His Word with hundreds of immigrants from Mexico and Central America. They come searching for the American dream, but God gives them something better - His dream for their lives and families!


To live and extend the Kingdom of God in our family, city, country and to the nations.


To Rescue, Deliver, Heal and Restore Lives in Jesus' name.


To be a Healthy, Holy and Servant Hearted Church


To Develop a culture of Honor, Freedom,
Generosity, Creativity and Excellence.

VIVA Church holds a special place in our hearts. As we have had the opportunity to build a relationship with them over the last few years, we have been impressed by the solid commitment they have to building the kingdom of God in a very selfless, humble, and persistent manner. When we have had the chance to minister with them on Sunday mornings, we have always come away blessed and encouraged by the warmth, generosity, and responsiveness to leading of the Lord. We stand behind Pastors Luis and Kristen as they lead the church into this new phase of purchasing their own building, and pray many will be led to play in part in what God is doing today at VIVA Church. As they have faithfully stood with us in blessing Israel and the Jewish people, we believe the Lord will also bless VIVA Church, supplying all their needs from His riches and glory.

VIVA Church is not a new church plant “start-up”, but a carefully cultivated and established church of Latinos who have already been making an impact in this important demographic. There are no shortcuts to developing a healthy, thriving Hispanic church. We know and trust these guys. You see, we actually planted them out of City Church several years ago as an autonomous church. We’ve walked alongside this team of Spanish speaking friends for years, observing their love for Jesus, for His Kingdom, His people, for sound Biblical beliefs and practice and to reach those who do not know Him. Pastor Luis and Kristen Roman have written several books, shared hundreds of talks on their daily radio program to help families gain spiritual health and spoken around the country at XO Conferences designed to strengthen marriages. They and the entire VIVA team have proven track records of integrity and a genuine passion to help people in their spiritual growth.

I not only consider Luis and Kristen dear friends, but I also consider them to both be extraordinary ministers of the gospel. They exude Christlikeness in everything they do and it is so exciting to see them continue to expand and grow VIVA church to reach more people in the DFW area. This is a church that will do big things for the Kingdom in the coming years, not only in the local church community, but internationally as well through the television and radio outreaches Luis and Kristen have launched. Proud to financially and prayerfully stand alongside this church and couple!

I have had the extraordinary pleasure of knowing Pastors Luis and Kristen Roman, through the Radio programs that are broadcasted on Radio Luz. During all these years, I have witnessed how the radio programs of the VIVA Church create a great impact on spiritual growth and the emotional strengthening of relationships between family members, by motivating them to have a personal experience with God and applying the Biblical principles that will bring blessing to each home.

I have had the opportunity to meet Pastors Luis and Kristen Román for several years now and I have been able to experience the presence of God in VIVA Church. In addition, I have been able to see that VIVA Church is a healthy congregation that is diligently fulfilling the calling of sharing the Message of Salvation through the Word of God and serving the community. That is why I urge you to be part of this step of faith by sowing on fertile ground to continue advancing the work of God through this beautiful and powerful congregation of VIVA Church.

Since 2012, the Lord has used Luis and Kristen to reach out to our Hispanic Community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. VIVA Church is the fruit of the Lord’s vision through their leadership and ministry. I am thrilled to see the Lord providing for the growth of his Kingdom through VIVA Church and look forward to seeing what the Lord will do in the days ahead!
