CBF TX Hires new employees

CBF TX Governing Board agreed with a recommendation from the CBF TX search committee to hire Jorge Zapata as Associate Coordinator for Missions & Hispanic Ministries, starting September 1, 2015.  He will work out of the CBF TX office in San Antonio.  The search team was chaired by Les Hollon (Pastor at Trinity Baptist Church, San Antonio) and included RICK MCCLATCHY (CBF TX FIELD COORDINATOR) Diana Bridges (former CBF missionary and presently an ESL instructor), Maria Monterio (professor at BUA and Worship Minister at First Mexican Baptist Church, San Antonio).  THEY had a strong field of candidates, which were qualified for the position.  THEY were impressed with Jorge Zapata's 1) experience of working with hundreds of mission teams along the Texas border and abroad, 2) his involvement with CBF, serving on the CBF TX Council and as moderator of CBF's rural poverty initiative Together For Hope, 3) his philosophy of doing missions which matches CBF's, 4) his ability to begin working quickly for CBF TX with little training time, due to his knowledge of the Texas border and his network of contacts along the border, and his past working relationship with many Texas Baptist churches, and 5) his experience of working with first through third generation Hispanics.
