StartCHURCH has partnered with the Convención Bautista Hispana de Texas to support and provide resources and tools for Convención pastors and church planters.

StartCHURCH will help about 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.

StartCHURCH will provide free resources to Convención churches, including:



  • 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

The free Spanish-language resources are available at espanol.startchurch.com/convencion

Churches and leaders will also receive free webinars online and in-person workshops at upcoming Convención events and the annual meeting in June 2022.

Convención churches also will receive special discounts for any additional paid services they would like to receive from StartCHURCH.



“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,” said Lester Ruiz, the chief business officer of StartCHURCH.

“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.”

“The heart of this collaboration is to help all the churches of the Convention with a trusted partner to accompany them in their call to bring the hope of the gospel to all nations,” Ruiz noted.
