About Us

The Encuentro radio program began in 1994 when Winnipeg pastor Ernesto Pinto partnered with Neil Klassen at Square One World Media (then Mennonite Brethren Communications). The new program first aired only in Winnipeg, but soon radio stations from across Latin America were requesting it. 


The reach of the initial radio program grew to include a television program (180 Grados) in 2008, and then a second radio program (Encuentro Familiar) hosted by Ernesto’s wife, Marina, in 2016. Today, the Encuentro name represents a variety of projects for radio, television and online platforms, as well as live events for evangelism and spiritual growth.
