An Introduction to our Ministry
Josef and Lina Urban are missionaries sent out from Grace Community Church of San Antonio, Texas, where Josef was ordained to pastoral ministry. We arrived to Mexico in 2007. In 2010, Josef and a fellow missionary, Aaron Block, began the first church plant in Guadalajara, Jalisco. By God's blessing, as of 2014, they are currently working among five different church plants in different cities across Mexico. Our burden is to reach Latin America with the biblical Gospel and to awaken the church to the historic truths of biblical Christianity.

Theological Training Academy
In 2014, we launched our Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies. This is a church-based Academy that offers a semi-seminary level of training for men who desire to be trained in theology. It is a 5-year program that offers courses in Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology, Historic Theology, and Practical Theology. This undertaking is a major project as we are recording all classroom sessions in high-quality video and audio format and integrating it into an online learning system, enabling us to engage in distance education in order to receive students from all over the world. Our first round round of classes includes over 200 distance students from over 15 countries and 36 resident students in Guadalajara (pictured below). In addition to hosting the Academy, we also host intensive modules for guest teachers to lecture on specialty topics from time to time. It is our plan to be continually expanding the program and course offerings in order to provide the best theological training possible for men in Latin America. (What is our doctrine?)
