SANTA MARTA, Colombia—GARBC National Representative Mike Hess had the privilege of speaking at the Growing in Leadership Conference at Impacto Bíblico Iglesia Cristiana Bautista in Santa Marta, Colombia.

On Saturday night, Feb. 8, he led a seminar on “The Essential of Humility in Leadership” and “How to Submit to Imperfect Leadership.” The next morning he taught on “Suffering with Authenticity” and “How to Build a Culture of Humility.” During his visit he also met with the church leaders to encourage them, introduce them to the ministries of Regular Baptist International, and share potential opportunities of translating Regular Baptist Press materials into Spanish.

Impacto Bíblico was started in 2011 by pastors Alfredo Medina and Jonathan Boyd, a member of CrossRoad Baptist Church, Ames, Iowa, who had been a missionary in Colombia since 2006. They have seen explosive growth in the church and have built a solid culture of discipleship.
