Phase 1: Discovery

We know there are tons of Young Latino Leaders in Hispanic Baptist churches across the state of Texas.

Are you one of them? Church leaders, do you know one?

Tell us about yourself (or one you know) and we will connect with them!

Phase 2: Coaching

We will select 20 key leaders in strategic communities across Texas. These "key leaders" will receive resources and training for a year.

Each key leader will recruit 5 young Latino leaders to be part of his/her cohort group. Each young leader will have an entrepreneurial experience and plan, develop, and execute creative and exciting missions/ministry projects.


Cohort groups will be completed by April 17, 2020.

Phase 3: Gatherings

The cohort groups of Young Latino Leaders will gather to grow in community, relationship and leadership.

Cohort Meeting Dates:

  • April 24, 2020

  • May 15, 2020

  • June 5, 2020

  • June 26, 2020

Big Meet-Ups for all Coaches and YLL's

  • April 22, 2020 @ Congreso (Baylor)

  • June 28, 2020 @ Convención Annual Mtg. (DBU)

  • October 9–10 The Young Latino Leadership Conference! (TBD)

Phase 4: action

Young Latino Leaders will begin implementing their entrepreneurial ministry/missions projects.


YLL's will be able to apply for "Mini-Grants" to invest in their ministry project and all along receive mentoring from their YLL Coach and others. 

The result?

Young leaders making eternal impact!
