Today, meet Mateo Rendon! Church Starter for Area 5.
Mateo has ministered with Texas Baptists for thirteen years! Before he came on with Texas Baptists, Mateo was the pastor of Primera Iglesia Bautista in Corpus Christi. "I felt that God had something else for me to do and resigned." Mateo was right. At that time, Texas Baptists' Hispanic ministry wanted to promote a preaching conference at Truett Seminary in Waco, TX and needed someone to take that on. Mateo was the man for the job. He helped within North Texas, which then evolved into the position of Hispanic Strategist for Hispanic churches in the state of Texas. In addition to that title, Mateo is the Church Starter for Area 5, including Denton. He ministers in North Texas and coordinates the new church starts in this area working with sponsor churches, local associations and new church planters.
