Genaro Orellana

Pastor Iglesia Gracia

At our annual meeting in October, the Duck River Baptist Association unanimously called Genaro Orellana as our new Hispanic Missionary to DRBA. Genaro also serves as pastor of Iglesia Gracia, which meets at Grace Baptist Church in Tullahoma.

With the growing Spanish-speaking population in our area, we look forward to what the Lord will do through the ministry of Genaro and Iglesia Gracia. We have already begun talks about expanding into Franklin County with a Spanish Bible study, and we have some interested churches in the area that are excited about being a part of this possible endeavor. 

Genaro has been spending time at the DRBA office, and continues to make contacts with the Spanish speaking peoples of our area. He is also completing Master's degree requirements through The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

If you would like to know more about Genaro or the ministry, or would like to have him come speak at your church, you can reach out to us here at the DRBA office. We are also hoping that churches will pray for this ministry and Genaro, and consider partnering with us financially to see God's Kingdom grow throughout the Spanish speaking peoples of the Duck River Baptist Association region.

Genaro can be reached by calling (931) 455-5072
