A Brief History of MDPC Fuente Ministries
In 2007, MDPC planted a church in the Spring Branch area called Iglesia Fuente de Esperanza and called Pastor Mauricio Chacón to lead the budding faith community. Pastor Chacón quickly set up worship and ministry to a group of Hispanic families that met in his own living room. After outgrowing that space, MDPC helped the new congregation lease a vacant Baptist church on Hammerly in Spring Branch. About that same time, Pastor Chacón and his congregation began a food pantry outreach to their community. From its inception, volunteers from Fuente and MDPC worked side-by-side to distribute food from the Houston Food Bank to about 300 clients each month.
In 2011, Fuente moved their operations to the MDPC campus, becoming MDPC Fuente Hispanic Ministries. By situating themselves in a strategic central location, the ministry and its food pantry can jointly serve the Hispanic communities both north of I-10 and south of Westheimer.
