Joe Hernandez has served as our Hispanic Minister. In 1994, Joe married Evelia Martel. In 1995, after the birth of their first child, Joe and Evelia moved to the Dallas, Texas, area to begin working in the Hispanic community. Joe and Evelia have been ministering the South Garland Hispanic community since 2004. They have two children Nathan and Divandre.  Joe Hernandez is a man of leadership possessing a great love for God’s people. Joe is known for teaching and preaching a very powerful word seasoned with humility that convicts, strengthens, and changes people’s hearts. Joe is happiest when he is baptizing and helping new Christians to recognize their God-given talents and abilities as well as their place of service and fulfillment within the Body of Christ.  Joe recognizes the need for an aggressive ministry among Hispanic people in the Dallas area. Hispanics are here in very large numbers. And this growth is not immigration from other Latin countries. It is caused primarily by birth rate. And these large numbers of Latinos have given Joe a desire to grow our Hispanic Ministry in its efforts to reach our local Spanish speaking community.

Most importantly, it provides an opportunity to challenge students to transition into young adulthood with a desire to follow Jesus wholeheartedly. Believe it or not, parents of high school students are cool too. It is a great partnership here at Saturn Road and has been for a number of years.

Love kids and provide ministry opportunities that teach them and stretch them to become ACTIVE members in God’s family while allowing them to be who they are. Ministry should be fun and educational and provide purpose that leaves young teens inspired to search themselves for a deeper experience. Loving kids is the key.Our Junior High ministry seeks to be a resource for parents and youth alike for ways to better serve their friends, family, church, community and God. Come be a part of our Junior High ministry and let’s help change the world for God! Proverbs 22:6 – Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
