Little Rock Central Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church

A Brief History of Little Rock, Arkansas

The Work Begins

Jorge Oregon

In 2001, Jorge Oregon, a lay pastor, started working with a small group of about twelve people. The Little Rock church served as the host church and provided their facilities to encourage the growth of this group (Orian, 2008).

Little Rock Spanish Company Organized in 2003

The Little Rock Spanish company was organized on April 5, 2003 (Minutes, 2003). On September 2, 2004, the members voted that they would let the conference know of their desire to become an organized church (Oregon, 2004). Some time later the congregation purchased property with a little over seven acres and a nice building on it that was remodeled into a very functional church facility (Orian, 2008).

Little Rock Spanish Church Organized in 2008

On Sabbath, April 19, 2008, the Little Rock Spanish company was organized into full church status with seventy charter members signing the membership registration (Orian, 2008). In September 2017, the church name was changed to Little Rock Central Spanish church (Alcorn, 2017).
