Pastor wants to pump some positives into his hometown

-A A +A

‘We Believe 2010’ will be Aug. 21 at Valdez Park

By Jennifer Garcia

Making the Española Valley a better place to live in is something that Associate Pastor Raul Archuleta is trying to accomplish through his ministry at New Creations and Christ Ministry Church.

A native of Española, Archuleta said he got called to the ministry a number of years ago and sees a need in the Valley “for something positive, something different.”

In his quest to bring change to his hometown, Archuleta has helped organize “We Believe 2010,” which will be from noon-10 p.m. Aug. 21 at Valdez Park, 313 Paseo de Oñate, in Española.

The event is an alcohol-free, family-oriented, event that will feature live music, a car show, a kids fun zone and food at no charge.

“We started ‘We Believe’ four years ago at the Valley National Bank parking lot,” Archuleta said. “We wanted to have an event that we could invite the community to that would be safe and free. We just really wanted to connect people.”

Archuleta said that when the event first began it didn’t have a name.
