Mission statement

What Distinguishes Us:

"The transformation movement is different because it is spiritual without being religious. Even though faith in God is its central tenet, there is no religious flavor to it. In fact, more than in houses of worship, it is taking place in the marketplace.

It is revolutionary without being rebellious. It is contagious without being infectious. It is empowering without being overpowering. It is personal while at the same time touching cities and nations. It is both death-defying and life-giving, because it is being facilitated by people who are overcoming systemic evil by the blood shed on the cross by the Holy One, people who have exchanged their lives for His life."

Transformation, Ch. 1

Our story starts in Argentina when two teenagers fell in love and asked the question... Can we reach a city for Christ?

50+ Years later not only have they seen transformation in a city, entire industries and nations are being transformed by a movement of ordinary men and women who have said yes to God!

Set against the backdrop of the Argentinian Civil War, Ed and Ruth Silvoso dared to believe God would not only reach their city with the Gospel of Christ but use them to disciple nations. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, they raised a family of 4 daughters while focusing their heart on preaching the Gospel in creative ways including launching Argentina's first Christian television show.

Dr. Ed Silvoso and his wife Ruth have spent the last 60 years pioneering the modern-day transformation movement founded on biblical principles and fueled by the Manifest Presence of Jesus.
