BEAUTIFUL SIX-ACRE CAMPUS AVAILABLE TO SRL IN HOUSTON, TEXAS
For 22 years God has used SRL to kindle a large church reformation in Latin America by providing theological education to thousands of gospel ministers. SRL now has an opportunity to replicate the Latin American model in North America to educate Spanish-speaking pastors in the USA for the purpose of reaching the millions of Hispanics residing here who do not know the gospel, the doctrines of grace, or the 16th Century Reformation. There are very few Hispanic reformed churches throughout the entire country due to the lack of pastors’ Biblical and Theological education.
God has opened the doors by providing a gift to SRL in Houston. SRL has an opportunity to acquire a two-million-dollar campus for only $700,000.00. It has three buildings, including a sanctuary in a prime location on a beautiful 6-acre lot. While many students could visit to attend modules there, the possibility exists to have dormitories for at least 100 students. Those Spanish-speaking students would come from each state of the USA, as well as from Latin America. The modest tuition would include intensive education, room, and board. God has also provided three missionary pastors who will serve as academic directors, administrators, and student mentors. Voluntary professors would teach intensive modules every two weeks and voluntary teachers would teach English on a daily basis to prepare the students to read reformed books and literature that are only available in English. See additional pictures below. The Board of Trustees approved a motion to proceed with the purchase of this property contingent on due diligence. We pray for God’s guidance and for contributors to donate funds or provide a $400,000.00 mortgage loan.

This physical SRL plant in the USA will be an anchor for the Hispanic church reformation in the USA. Houston alone has a population of 2 million Hispanics, but only 1 Hispanic reformed church. This campus will be to the USA what Medellín is to Latin America. Land property video: https://youtu.be/LtENipkHci0
