The Spanish Evangelical Church will return to its roots on the East Side.

Ground was broken today for a new $1.2 million edifice for the 150-member church on a vacant, 15-acre site at Kendis Circle and Keystone Avenue.

The new building will be the first structure built specifically to house the church, which was founded in 1954 by a group of steel workers, who came to the Mahoning Valley from Puerto Rico.

“We believe that God called us to the East Side. We initially were here when the church was founded on Wilson Avenue,” the Rev. Rolando Rojas, the church’s senior pastor, said at the groundbreaking site.
