BSP: How did this ministry come about?
D & E Munoz: We started to network with Spanish families in our home church, Heartland World Ministries, 6 years ago. Pastor Steve Hill and his wife, Jeri Hill, have a passion for the Latin community and so we, (Pastor Eli and Dee Munoz) started the Spanish Church as a mission of HWMC. Heartland Hispana is now a full-functioning church with different ministries for the entire family while preaching a non-compromising message of the Gospel as we reach out to souls.
BSP: What is the mission of your fellowship?
D & E Munoz: Our mission at Heartland Hispana is to be a lighthouse in the Metroplex with the following; Worship, Reach Out, Build Relationships, Train, Send.
BSP: What, if any, differences would we find within this fellowship vs. an English-speaking, stereotypical church?
D & E Munoz: One of the great aspects of Heartland Hispana is the diversity in culture. It is awesome to worship the same God surrounded by men and women from different Latin American countries. We all speak the same language, which is Spanish, but we all have different cultural backgrounds.
BSP: What is the vision that God has given to you, as pastors, for this fellowship?
D & E Munoz: Our vision and desire is to see God’s love , power and glory be manifested in the hearts of our people, in such a way that they will rise up to experience all that God has for them.
