StartCHURCH has partnered with the Convención Bautista Hispana de Texas to provide resources and tools for Convención pastors and church planters.
Through the partnership StartCHURCH will provide:
- Resource packets with essential policies and documents for each congregation
- Resources to strengthen the finances of the church
- Fundraising resources
- A Spanish language blog and podcast
- A free consultation for each church
Additionally, church planters and pastors will receive access to online resources and waived registration fees at upcoming in-person church growth and planting seminars.
Lester Ruiz, the chief business officer of StartCHURCH, said, “We have been privileged to help thousands of pastors and church planters establish a strong legal foundation for their church each year, and we are honored to partner with the Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas to offer the tools, advice, training and services they need to protect their churches and prevail in their mission.”
“I have personally seen the challenges that Hispanic congregations face with compliance issues,” said Jesse Rincones, the executive director of Convención. “The challenges that churches face are becoming more complex and it is no longer enough to have a vision. More than ever, it is necessary to have a partner throughout the process. We are glad that StartCHURCH will be that partner with us.”
Currently, StartCHURCH serves more than 19,000 churches and ministries spread across the continental United States and Puerto Rico. Through the partnership, StartCHURCH will help approximately 1,100 Hispanic Baptist churches in Texas with expertise in the areas of: church incorporation, bylaws, policies, tax exemption, financial administration, ordination and other compliance issues.
