Hearts in Mexico (HiM) is a non-denominational mission organization
working with Mexican Pastors to reach the people in their communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our desire, along with the leaders we serve, is to see Jesus Christ worshipped in every village in Mexico. While our efforts to date have been focused on Baja California and the state of Chiapas, our goal is to help establish and support new community churches throughout Mexico in partnership with Christian Mexican Nationals
HiM primarily works with the “forgotten” leaders in Mexico. We refer to them as “forgotten” because they are in small villages that are usually overlooked by other mission organizations. Our role is to come alongside these pastors, missionaries and evangelists, providing them with teaching, training and equipping to help them accomplish the task God has placed before them. We develop close relationships with these leaders in order to disciple them, pray with them and, sometimes more importantly, to give them the encouragement they need. When we visit with them in their homes, they know they are not alone, and what they do is greatly appreciated by God.
Our Ministries Include the Following:
We have big goals, but most importantly, we have a BIG God! He has performed miracles time after time as He works through us to accomplish His desires in Mexico.
We invite you to join us in
Hearts in Mexico (HiM) was founded in 2001. After meeting a young Mexican Pastor and his family when chaperoning their church youth group on a number of ministry trips, Michael and Sheryl formed HiM to disciple and encourage this young couple. They soon found out that their church was one of approximately ten churches in an association of churches.
In order to work with that many Pastors, It was decided to hold our first Pastor Retreat at the end of 2001. We have since held 19 annual Pastor Retreats, with the streak only being interrupted by Covid 19 in 2020.
After both the first and second Pastor Retreats, the Pastors asked that HiM give the same training to their youth. Therefore we held our first Youth Retreat in 2003. We have since held 17 annual Youth Retreats, with this streak also being interrupted by Covid 19 in 2020.
The Lord has made it clear to us that our ministry is to the “forgotten Mexican Pastors,” those in small villages where other ministries don’t go. To have an impact on these Pastors means working with smaller groups, which also means we get to know the Pastors as individuals and their needs.
Over the years we have established a library of Spanish Christian Books as resources for the Pastors, have visited many Pastors in their homes to encourage them and pray for them, and have done numerous other things to encourage these Pastors, many who are “weekend Pastors” as they must work in the fields or in other occupations to provide for their families and are Pastors on the weekends and in the evenings.
In 2018, one of the Mexican Pastors made a connection to a group of Pastors in the State of Chiapas, Mexico, the most southern State of Mexico adjacent to Guatemala. After a visit with the Chiapas Pastors, the Pastors we work with noted “they are spiritually where we were before Hearts in Mexico began to disciple us!” They decided to pass along what they had learned. In addition to giving their church members the opportunity to participate in a mission trip, they held Pastor Retreats for the Pastors in Chiapas in 2018 and 2019.
