Hispanic network to honor church planting leaders

The Southern Baptist Hispanic Multiplying Church Network will gather for its seventh-annual meeting June 14 in Indianapolis to celebrate the launch of 241 new Hispanic Baptist churches last year and to cast a vision for reaching more Hispanic communities.

A main component of the meeting will be the recognition of several members who have made outstanding contributions to church planting efforts in Hispanic communities.

Daniel Sanchez, professor of missions and director of the Scarborough Institute for Church Growth at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, will be recognized for mentoring and teaching about church planting as well as accomplishing significant work worldwide.

Roberto Gama, a retired strategic resourcing associate with the North American Mission Board, and Eliseo Aldape, a retired NAMB worker, will be recognized for their contributions to church planting in Hispanic communities.

Jesse Miranda, executive director of AMEN, a national evangelistic Hispanic organization based in Costa Mesa, Calif., will present a message to the members in conjunction with a musical celebration featuring soloists Mario Solorio and Mariel Rosales.

The meeting of church planters, lay people and denominational workers will be from 6-9 p.m. Monday, June 14 at Northside Baptist Church in Indianapolis.

"I expect not only affirming and encouraging of the church planters [at the meeting], I anticipate also that for the lay people we will plant a vision for multiplying themselves," Bobby Sena, field partner service representative for the NAMB church planting group, said. "I believe it's time for Hispanic churches to catch the vision that others don't have to always be providing the funds for them. Hispanic church planting can be ourselves taking on the responsibility of starting new works and reaching our own Hispanic communities."

For more information, contact Sena at 770-410-6227 or bsena@namb.net.

With 36 million people, Hispanics comprise the largest minority group in the United States.
