Buff and Lana
Our Lead Pastors, Buff and Lana Ness, came from the United States in July, 2014 to begin this work in Salinas, Ecuador. Both of them have previously been pastors in Texas and Missouri. Pastor Buff and Pastor Lana (pronounced “Lonna”) both have earned doctorate degrees from Universities in the US. Pastor Lana leads the Worship Team in the English Service and both of them are able teachers of the Word of God. We call them our “pair a docs.”
Due to the growth of the congregation, COTB began having two services – English and Spanish – in 2019. The Lord continues to add to our numbers as we are faithful to serve Him.
