Richard Cano 

SAN FERNANDO VALLEY - "I tell people that when you baptize people, it shows how hard your church works," Richard Cano says. "In my heart, you can't beat that!" Richard Cano has served as church planting catalyst with the California Southern Baptist Convention Church Starting Group since 2003. He specializes in starting new Hispanic churches in the San Fernando Valley Association and the LAX Urban Center. Since beginning his ministry with CSBC, Richard has been instrumental in planting more than 35 churches to extend God's kingdom. "I became a Christian through my boss where I used to work in San Diego," Richard said. "He would talk to me about Christ. This went on for about two years, and I really did not want to hear too much about it. One day his wife asked me, 'If you died today, do you know where you would go?'"

That incident led Richard and his wife, Silvia, to their first Bible study. "I did not understand very much, but something was there that I liked," Richard remembered. "We went again. During the third Bible study, the pastor asked if anyone wanted to ask God for forgiveness. I did not understand what the words receive Christ meant, but I did understand the word forgiveness. My hand went up. My wife's hand went up. I did not understand why I was crying, but I knew then that God had done something in my life. That was 1976." Richard and Silvia never looked back. He told God, "If I ever want to go back, You can go ahead and take my life. I never want to go back to what I was before You saved me."
