With more than 3,368 Southern Baptist Hispanic congregations in the U.S., Hispanic Americans are making a mark on the mission field. Historically, Hispanic countries have been considered a mission field but now Hispanics are becoming a steadfast missionary force all over the world.
Southern Baptists churches are invited to celebrate Hispanic Missions Sunday on Sept. 17.
“It’s a Sunday set aside to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of Hispanic International Mission Board missionaries and Hispanic churches as active partners with the IMB,” the IMB noted.
“As our nation recognizes Hispanic Heritage Month,” they said, “Southern Baptist churches are invited to celebrate and pray for what God is doing through Hispanic churches.”
“We praise God for Hispanic churches sending missionaries to the nations via short-term mission trips and for Hispanic IMB missionaries,” IMB said, “many of whom serve among people groups who are hard to reach with the gospel.”
