Our Mission

"A Healing Hand for a Hurting World"

C2C fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ through sharing the gospel to the poor, healing the brokenhearted, preaching deliverance to the captives and bringing restoration to those who have been bruised. (Luke 4:18)

Our Vision


C2C fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ found in Matthew 28:19, 20 "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you..."

Our ministry impacts Columbia and surrounding through relational evangelism and a demonstration of authentic love for all people regardless of race, gender, culture, nationalities, and/or diverse backgrounds.

Pastors Pedro & Maria Maldonado Jr. 

Since 1980, Pastor Pedro Maldonado and his wife Lady Maria have been the founding Pastors of Chosen 2 Conquer International Ministries, a thriving ministry in Columbia, South Carolina. As committed and loving pastors, C2C is their daily focus and passion! Pastor Pedro was born in Buffalo, New York and Lady Maria was born in Puerto Rico, but raised in New York City. They received "on the job" training for ministry in the inner city streets of Manhattan, New York at Soul Saving Station for Every Nation. It was there; Pastor Pedro recognized the call of God on his life to pastor lost, hurting, wounded people. Out of their own pain and experiences, God's anointing flows through them with compassion. Pastor Pedro and Lady Maria's passion for souls is lived out in C2C's mission "A healing hand for a hurting world".


Pastor "Pedro" and his wife Maria walk in a prophetic anointing and have a unique discernment of the Spirit of God. This is often demonstrated through the spoken word as it is preached with authority and power; often accompanied by the manifestations of healing and deliverance. Pastors Pedro and Maria not only preach the word on total life prosperity, but also are living examples of God's favor and blessing. They know, through their own personal struggles how God can deliver from the generational curse of poverty and bring supernatural provision, even in the midst of famine. They have proven in their own lives that he who releases the seed in faith will receive the harvest! They walk by faith, and not by sight!
