Hispanic Baptists prepare for Louisville


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) — “Rekindling the Fire of God” is the theme for the Fellowship of Hispanic Churches of the SBC prior to the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting in Louisville, Ky.

Fellowship leaders noted that the group will support Crossover and other pre-SBC evangelistic and church planting activities in addition to their scheduled activities.

The fellowship and local Baptist associations and churches, the North American Mission Board, and Kentucky Baptist Convention are working together to make an impact in local communities with the gospel. Hispanics number up to 60,000 in the metro Louisville area, up to 4 percent of the population.

All Hispanic churches, SBC messengers, and visitors have been challenged to actively participate in the various Crossover activities beginning June 15 and culminating June 20. Hispanic Baptists in Kentucky have their own website in Spanish for those who would like more information on the Crossover events:
