Hispanic Church Plant
Alcanzando Las Naciones (Reaching the Nations) is our Hispanic church plant in Lake Highlands. HPPC became involved with this church through Pastor Raymond Laurencio. HPPC began our relationship with Raymond 10 years ago, when he was a translator for our mission trips in Cuba.
Through this work, Raymond and his wife, Caridad, became friends with many of our members. When his family was granted permission to come to the United States, they chose to move to Dallas, where they had friends. The HPPC Cuba Team helped them become acclimated, find housing, work and schooling for their daughter. Raymond and Caridad were always active in ministry in Cuba and immediately felt called to minister to the Cubans in Dallas. They began to explore the idea of starting a church with their friends at HPPC.
After meeting for more than a year in a classroom at HPPC, they were ready to find their own space. The church meets in a one story commercial office building on Pendleton, at the intersection of Garland Rd. and NW Hwy. Raymond’s vision has expanded to reach not just Cubans, but the entire Hispanic community, and teach them to know and serve the Lord with all their heart. Raymond has developed leaders who are empowered and focused to help fuel the growth of this ministry. Visit cristianosdallas.com for more information.
