Last month 835 Southern Baptist leaders attended the annual National Hispanic Evangelism and Mobilization Conference in San Antonio. According Joshua Del Risco, an evangelism coordinator at the North American Mission Board and organizer of the conference, 85 percent of those attendees were either pastors or church leaders.
The conference focused on helping Hispanics in North America reach out to other Hispanics, including second-and third-generations. An English track focused on Hispanic pastors who lead Hispanic, multicultural and English-language congregations and a Spanish track focused on the needs of leaders in first-generation Hispanic churches.
“Undergirding the entire conference was a strong emphasis on evangelism and church planting, not only among Hispanics but among other cultures as well, in particular, the unreached peoples,” Del Risco said. “Throughout the conference we felt the Lord’s presence and the Holy Spirit was at work bringing about healing, reconciliation and igniting a spark for spiritual awakening among the Hispanic church in North America.”
Both Southern Baptist Texas conventions participated in sponsoring and attending the conference (Baptist General Convention of Texas and Southern Baptists of Texas Convention).
“Participants in the conference were informed, inspired, and equipped for evangelism and church planting,” Del Risco said.
