Longtime evangelist and leader Bob Sena has been named Hispanic relations consultant to the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention, Executive Committee President Frank S. Page has announced.
Page appointed Sena in response to the final report of the Hispanic Advisory Council Page appointed in 2011. The report, presented to Page by council co-chairs Sena and Daniel Sanchez of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary during the council’s final meeting in March, highlighted and detailed the rapid growth of Hispanics in every region of North America.
In his new position, Sena will work as a consultant in the office of convention advancement to represent Hispanic churches and promote the Cooperative Program. Ken Weathersby, Executive Committee vice president for convention advancement, welcomed Sena to the position.
“I am excited to have Dr. Bob Sena as a member of our team,” Weathersby told Baptist Press. “He has a wealth of experiences and relationships in the SBC. It is our hope and desire that the Kingdom of God will be expanded because of his appointment. Please join me in prayer for him and his family.”
Sena will work comprehensively in strengthening the participation of Hispanic churches in Southern Baptist life, Weathersby said.
“He will be responsible in assisting the Convention in building better relationships among Hispanics, promoting Cooperative Program and stewardship development among Hispanic churches, assisting in encouraging Hispanic leaders to serve on committees and trustee boards, and assisting in global evangelical relations within the Spanish speaking cultures in North America and around the world,” Weathersby said.
