A word from your Missions Office


BMA Texas Missions hosted the second annual Young Intern Leadership Retreat in Lindale Jan. 18-20. It was a beneficial event. Larry Bickel, Todd West, Jerry Fulton, Brad Holcombe and I shared leadership equipping with these 12 young people. We sang, prayed, spent time in the Word and worked on ourselves while building relationships. We took a break and escaped a Tyler escape room in the middle of the retreat. We thank New Harmony for providing us with transportation.
These interns come from four BMA of Texas churches that are investing in their young people and equipping them as leaders.  Texas Missions is partnering in that equipping. They must be out of high school for at least a year with a burden to be in ministry leadership. We want to talk to your church about partnering in this program. God is faithfully raising and calling leaders!


100 New Churches/10 years

  • That we see an aggressive multiplication movement of churches who make disciples, equip and release leaders, and start churches for the glory of God and the advancement of his Kingdom Mission
  • That each new mission begin with a plan to begin three new churches in their first 10 years
  • That pastors and churches of the association be encouraged and equipped to start new churches
  • That we connect, evaluate, identify and train new prospective church planters


A word from your missionaries:

Jose Gil – Proyecto Misionero “Lidia” 

The apartment for the Spring cell caught fire. The host family is a very young couple, both of them being new believers. In addition to the apartment fire, hey have been through tough situations lately such as financial, health and transportation issues. Even through all of this, they told me that their confidence and hope remains in God. It was a touching moment and I thank God for the testimony of these disciples. 

Prayer Needs:

Gratitude: The host couple in Spring cell got a new place to live on the very same day of the fire.

Wisdom: I will lead a workshop on church’s cells for eight weeks.


Jaime Garcia– Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida Mission in Gilmer


This month a woman with many burdens told me about her problems and I led her to the feet of Christ. We have also been working with the annual agenda and with the different ministries where there is a lack of participation. We had our first church meeting and it was very good. 

Prayer Needs:

Please pray with me, for the leaders who I believe will be the future successors of ministry here at Gilmer.


Isaias Martinez – Conroe Mission 

The church has moved forward. We have three new families. One of them started a new discipleship cell and that is our reason for being.

Prayer Needs:

Pray for new converts who are in discipleship.


Haitao He– Free Salvation Bible Mission in Corpus Christi 


We had a great evening this month for a prayer meeting. A total of 17 people came and shared, laughed and prayed together. I loved to see people’s faces filled with joy and happiness as we finished the night and took a group picture. We got to know each other better by listening to each others’ stories, including the children. I sensed a pure affection for the collective life, as people go through life as believers and we have a connection with each other.

Prayer Needs:

Pray that we will have more people respond to our event in the coming months.


Omar Pina, Sr.– Missions in Waxahachie/Dallas

Dual support with BMA of America


This month was focused on equipping members for evangelism and reaching more souls. It is a big challenge to get the church members involved in doing the work of the ministry. We won’t move to another stage until every attendee is involved in the ministry of reaching souls.

Prayer Needs:

Pray for more workers willing to serve unconditionally and funds to find a place to which we can move.


Jaime Henriquez– Fuente De Vida Eterna Mission in Tomball


We continue to advance in the work that God has placed in our hands—evangelizing, discipling and serving. This month we gave two evangelism presentations and two are being discipled. Five cells meet in homes every Wednesday. The youth have their weekly meeting on Fridays while we adults learn about stewardship. This month’s Sunday services challenged us to be better in our priorities, in our relationships and in our testimony.

Prayer Needs:

Pray that God opens doors for us so that hearts are receptive to the message of the gospel.



Rudy Villareal– Hometown Church Mission in Helotes 


We are gaining momentum in our church plant and are planning a big community outreach event for St. Patrick’s Day. We are going to have bounce houses, pickleball, corn hole and food. Our goal is to reach 50 adults to share the gospel and get connected within our community.

Prayer Needs:

Please pray that our church plant continues to gain momentum and that we reach people for our event.


Chris Driver– West Texas Multiplication Network/Texas Missionary Care 


Howdy from west Texas! This year is off to a great start. We officially started Oasis Kids on Wednesday nights. Our new children’s director, Brooke, is doing a fabulous job and we had 19 kiddos this past week. Our monthly men’s breakfasts continue to grow. We have begun finalizing plans to host our first mission team from O’Quinn, Pollok in June. We are so excited about what God is doing. It’s going to be an amazing year. Thank you for all your support that allows us to do what God has called us to do out here in west Texas.

Prayer Needs:

New discipleship opportunities in sundown and Whitharral

New connections at SPC

Storage building


Peter Oyeniran – Planting in Mission Bend


We give God praise for helping us secure a place of worship at one of the daycare centers in southwest Houston. The team was able to gather for worship. Our challenge now is that we need some materials like speakers, a microphone, foldable chairs for worship and a children’s department. Could you help us with any of these needs?


Tim Alba– The Bridge Mission in Seagoville 


Our church has been on track. We do have struggles like any church but we also have amazing stories to tell when it comes to God doing powerful things through our congregation and leadership. For one, our strongest ministry currently is our women’s ministry. We have seen multiple salvations and baptisms come through that ministry. These ladies have done an amazing job sharing Christ and promoting our plant through events and outreach. We have also been successful in going out on the streets and sharing the gospel in the summers at parks and street corners where there is a lot of traffic. The amount of people we have prayed for and shared the gospel with has been astounding. We have taken opportunities to share the gospel with people walking in front of our building and seen them receive Christ. We have also been successful at giving to our community and involving ourselves in city-wide events so we can promote our church. God has done amazing things this year. We are hoping to engage more people and challenge our congregation to new heights in their walk with Jesus.

Prayer Needs:

Please continue to pray for our plant and that God continues to use us in our community.


Chris Mindi– Anchor Austin Mission in Leander    


Anchor, Austin is growing in a sustainable, healthy way. These past few months have been a great blessing to the mission. We met new families in town who are Indian Christians. They share our vision of how God is leading Anchor, Austin in making disciples who make disciples. We have a young man who has been with us for a couple of years now, growing in the Lord and maturing in faith. God has blessed him in finding a fiance and now they both are getting married soon. As a church, we are blessed to invest in their journey. Another praise is that we were able to secure a facility to start our worship services. God is blessing us by preparing individuals to see what God is doing through Anchor, Austin and supporting it with their time, talents and treasure. www.anchoraustin.com

Prayer Needs:

Pray for the start of our Sunday worship services beginning this Easter Sunday.

Please pray for laborers, that God would send whom he is moving to come and join us in His mission in Georgetown.

Please pray for us as leaders in this mission to have timely wisdom in making decisions and challenging people to be missional.


Kyle Cheatham– Grace Church Jarrell Mission  


God continues to move us forward on this mission! Two separate ladies have been attending our church for several months.. My wife and I have been meeting with each individually to dig into their current place spiritually. One is coming out of years as a Mormon. Both are hungry for God’s Word. One is either very close to saving faith, or else she is a baby Christian, and we are seeking to clarify with her and move her forward. The other woman is not a believer, but clearly seems to be being drawn to Jesus.

Prayer Needs:

Please pray for our church as we cast the vision for Oikos groups and events as we lead our people to be more intentional evangelistically as they build relationships with unchurched people.


Aderemi Badru- Light House Mission in Houston 


We are grateful to God that the Lighthouse of Hope For All Nations is growing and leaders are being trained and identified. We are looking forward to our public launch March 24, but we desperately need to rent a bigger space so that we can have room for our children’s ministry. We are currently trusting God for the provision of funds to rent a space and to get some of the equipment that is needed.

Prayer Needs:

Pray for us that God will send us the help needed to rent a new space for worship as we look forward to our public launch, and also that God will give us wisdom to reach the unreached in our community.
