Hispanic conf. aims to reach men of all ages

GLEN ROSE Hispanic church leaders, laymen and students will gather for Hombres de Impacto at Riverbend Retreat Center in Glen Rose, Oct. 27-28. Heriberto Hermosillo, pastor of Semilla de Mostaza in McAllen, will be the featured speaker.

The theme of this year’s men’s ministry conference is “Words of Life,” based on Psalm 19:7-10. SBTC Hispanic Ministries Associate Jesse Contreras outlined the breakout sessions on characteristics of a soldier of God; addressing the importance of Scripture, prayer and sacrifice; avoiding temptation; and achieving victory in Christ. 

“We live in a very tumultuous world and there are many oppositions to the cause of Christ,” he told the TEXAN, “so this is a time for men to get together to be encouraged and realize they are not alone in this battle.”

With young men who are 15 years of age and older invited to participate, the conference will feature a specific track for youth on Saturday offered in English. 

The conference gets underway with a dinner at 7 p.m. on Friday prepared by the SBTC Disaster Relief volunteers. A soccer tournament for participating churches starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday as the closing event.

Further details are available online at or by calling 817-552-2500. Churches are encouraged to register by Oct. 17 at a cost of $70 per person.
