80 people attend Hispanic training in Nebraska

The fields are ripe for harvest among Hispanics in Nebraska and Kansas.

Eighty Hispanic pastors and church leaders gathered in Hastings, Neb., on Saturday, Oct. 17, for training to help start more churches and reach new people.

Enrique Bluvan and Felipe Matias led the training. Bluvan is a Hispanic church planter catalyst based in Garden City, Kan. Matias is a pastor and church planter in Fort Morgan, Colo.

Participants came from as Scottsbluff and South Sioux City. Rock of Salvation Baptist Church, the Hispanic church in Lexington, Neb., brought 27 people.

Palmer Bible Church (SBC) of Palmer, Neb., and Hastings Baptist Fellowship provided refreshments and lunch. A Hispanic team from Kansas provided child care.

Doug Lee, church planter catalyst in Nebraska, wrote on Facebook:

“We have prayed for God to send out laborers into the harvest. We have prayed for this Hispanic Pastor and Leadership Training and God answered!

  • “Pray for wisdom to know when and where to offer the next Hispanic training event.
  • “Pray for a Hispanic Bible Study in Scottsbluff that contacted Bethel Baptist Church (in Scottsbluff) and attended our training.
  • “Pray for a growing cooperation among our Hispanics churches to reach our Hispanic population for Christ.”
