Iglesia Bautista Hillcrest
In the Spring of 2008, we began a Sunday School class for Hispanics, and later added a Hispanic Worship Service (worship & message translated into Spanish), led by Pastor Tim Harville.
Tim, a Henry County native, accepted Christ as his Savior in 1971 (at the age of 10) and became a member of Hillcrest Baptist Church. While on a mission trip to Spain in 2007, he felt called to serve in the Hispanic Ministry. He was licensed into the Gospel Ministry on May 2, 2010, ordained on February 13, 2011, received his Master of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2011 and a Doctor of Ministry from LBTS in May 2013. He and his wife, Cathy, live in Ridgeway, VA, and have 2 sons.
In April of 2009, Iglesia Bautista Hillcrest was chartered as a church plant of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia and in partnership with Hillcrest Baptist Church. Since that time, God has blessed and grown this ministry.
A bus ministry is provided for Hispanics on Sunday Mornings & Wednesday Evenings. Hilltop Community Center opened in 2011 & provides tutoring for Hispanic children, ESL classes, & weekly Bible studies. In the spring of 2013, Iglesia added a Friday night discipleship program from children that meets at Hillcrest.
