MADISON, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man has started a church catering to Madison’s growing Hispanic population.

The Madison Daily Leader reports that Francisco Vargas has started the church Cristo Viene. Vargas has experience as a pastor and has been doing radio ministry for 13 years.

The new church is currently hosting its services at Madison’s First Baptist Church. Vargas says the Baptist church welcomed Cristo Viene “with open arms.”

Services in Spanish are held twice a week and Vargas says they are open to anyone.

Vargas adds that Cristo Viene is “here to stay” although it could take up to four years to fully establish a church.
