One of the things that distinguishes Texas Baptists from other conventions is that we have made the education of our Hispanic students a priority. This is why about seven years ago, Texas Baptists created the Hispanic Education Initiative; it is necessary that in our days, seeing the great current and projected growth of the Hispanic population, we make the education of our children and young people a priority. If it is projected that there will be 21 million Hispanics in Texas by 2050 and that Hispanics will surpass the Anglo population by 2020, we must increase the percentage of Hispanics earn bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. We exist to help families and students understand that going to college is a real possibility for them! This is another way in which Texas Baptists are investing in the future of our Baptist leaders.
To make college a real possibility for our students, resources are required, especially money. We have realized that it is not enough only to raise money for scholarships and award them. We need both parents and young people to make a significant effort to put themselves in a position to find money for college. So what are three basic actions that parents and children can begin to take today in order to obtain more financial resources and achieve their educational potential?
Someone said that, "Everything that is worth having in the life costs." This is very true, especially when we talk about achieving the potential for which we were created. Let’s act today so that we may impact tomorrow.

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.
The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
