IN 2020



  1. Develop a network of young Latino leaders in Texas. 

  2. Strengthen the relationships between young Latino leaders, both regional and statewide, through networking in cohort groups. 

  3. Activate young leaders of Hispanic Baptist congregations to work with their churches through projects that will ignite the growth of the congregation and inspire other potential young leaders to serve God by using their gifts.

  4. Impact the Baptist churches in Texas through projects envisioned and implemented by their young leaders.

  5. Equip young leaders by working with a key leader as they plan and work together on the project.

  6. Inspire the young Latino leaders in Texas to have a louder voice in their roles of leadership in their congregations and communities.

Phase 1: Discovery

We know there are tons of Young Latino Leaders in Hispanic Baptist churches across the state of Texas.

Are you one of them? Church leaders, do you know one?

Tell us about yourself (or one you know) and we will connect with them!

Support Group
Phase 2: Coaching

We will select 20 key leaders in strategic communities across Texas. These "key leaders" will receive resources and training for a year.

Each key leader will recruit 5 young Latino leaders to be part of his/her cohort group. Each young leader will have entrepreneurial experience and plan, develop, and execute creative and exciting missions/ministry projects.


Cohort groups will be completed by April 17, 2020.
