What is Together for Hope?

Together for Hope (TFH) is an effort of CBF to reach the people living in the poorest rural counties of Texas with the Gospel.  This population is Hispanic and the counties are along the Texas/Mexico border.  Large numbers of children are affected by poverty in these counties. Partners that we work with are local associations, churches, community centers, schools, and businesses.  We also partner with other organizations such Buckner, Literacy Connexus, Heart for Kids, and Coalition for Combating Human Trafficking.

How does it work?

The work is carried on by small groups of local coordinators that work with churches and community leaders in the targeted counties to identify local needs.  These coordinators match needs of the poorest counties with the talents and gifts of people from your church.  By meeting these needs your people have opportunities to share the good news about Jesus.

How do I get involved?

Contact Jorge Zapata (956-873-1537 or and he will help you to get your church ready for involvement in TFH. If you would like to receive a TFH planning manual electronically, then email



Starting in 2015, CBF Texas and CBF National agreed to finance plan that would provide CBF Texas $250,000 per year as part of a joint budget planning agreement. This means that if you send an undesignated gift to CBF National they will make sure that CBF Texas will provided its allocation from the gift. If you send an undesignated gift directly to CBF Texas, it will be counted as part of the agreed upon $250,000 allocated to CBF Texas each year.
