100 years, 100 baptisms


The 100th anniversary celebration of the Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas fittingly began with the baptism of 100 people — one for every year the convention has spread the hope of Christ across the state and around the globe. Messengers packed the sanctuary of Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio and another 800 youth participated in a service in another building.

The energy last night was high and people’s spirits were even higher. Most importantly, God was present in the room. Led by President Victor Rodriguez, messengers contemplated how God has worked through the convention and how those faith markers are pointing to an even greater future.

In many ways, the future of Texas Baptist work relies on Hispanic Baptist churches. God strategically has placed them in this state to reach its changing population. As leaders noted last night, the convention’s past is important. It’s future is vital.

For those of you looking for the new officers, here they are. I’ll try to get some photos posted later tonight.

First Vice President: Jesse Rincones

Second Vice President: Manuel Rodriguez

Third Vice President: Daniel “Tiny” Dominguez

Secretary: Rafael Munoz

    I’m sorry for the delay, but I’m having issues finding a fast enough connection to upload a significant number of photos from convencion. As soon as I can find a fast connection, I’ll upload them but it may not be until Wednesday.

    Hey John, will you or someone else post the revised unification agreement between Convencion and BGCT? I’d like to read it.

    John, I just saw your comment tonight. I’ll see what I can do to get an electronic copy from Bro. Rolando.
