Luis and his wife Nohemi recognized the need for spanish ministry in the Kansas City metro area, and together they answered the call to church planting five years ago. They planted Primer Iglesia Bautista de Independence in Independence, MO in 2014. Currently, this church meets in our facilities (The Church at Three Trails) every Sunday at 1pm.

As Luis has continued to pastor Primera Iglesia Bautista de Independence, he has felt the Lord's calling to plant another hispanic church in the northern Kansas City metro area. He has now partnered with Northland Baptist Church and together they are planting Northland Baptist en Español. They plan to launch on Easter of 2020. 

Additionally, Luis and Nohemi have started an ESL ministry for the community. They have over 20 students enrolled and have seen three families come to the faith within the first month. Currently, this ministry meets on Sunday evenings at 6pm for Bible study at Northland Baptist Church.
