Born in Cuauhtèmoc Chihuahua, Mexico, Manuel Estebanè. was saved at the age of fourteen, and began ministry for the Lord by the age of fifteen. He received Biblical education at the Instituto Bautista Calvario, in Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua.
Pastor Estebanè married to Martha more than 30 years ago. They have two married children - Aaron who serves the Lord as a Music Minister at Congress Avenue Baptist Church in Austin, TX; and Cesia, their daughter, who is a practicing chiropractor in Puerto Rico along with her husband. Manuel & Martha are grandparents of six grandchildren.
In 1980 Templo Bautista Calvario, in Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua, called Manuel to be the Senior Pastor where he continued to serve for over 20 years. During this time, the Gospel was taken to almost every corner of the state of Chihuahua, in cooperation with Bearing Precious Seed in El Paso, Texas, under the direction of Dr. Carlos Demarest. Four churches were planted in the city and two others in Chihuahua State.
God moved Pastor Estebanè and his family to Lee`s Summit, Missouri, to establish a Hispanic Ministry at Lee's Summit Baptist Temple (LSBT) for four years, while working at Lenexa Baptist Church in the Hispanic Ministry. In December of 2005, the Iglesia Bautista del Valle in Juarez, Mexico was left without a Pastor. After much careful prayer and consideration, Manuel offered himself as a candidate for the pastorate of the church.
In April of 2006, Manuel Estebanè became the Senior Pastor of IBV in Juárez City, a church with serious problems in all aspects. In 2008, war broke out between drug cartels. Horrible crimes, chaos, panic invades Juarez, recently considered one of the most violent cities in the world for three consecutive years. Because of the violence, many decided to leave the city which greatly affected the church because many church members also moved to other cities. By 2012, the crime rate decreased considerably and the church began to rise with the hope of better times. We deeply appreciate your love, prayers and support for this ministry.
