History of Rio Grande Bible Ministries

Former Presidents
From left to right, Gordon Johnson, Leonard Hanes, William Thompson and Russel Hobbs. Four former presidents of the Rio Grande Bible Ministries.

The Rio Grande Bible Institute, Inc. was founded in 1946 by Rev. M.C. Ehlert, a Baptist pastor and evangelist, who came to the Rio Grande Valley in 1937 to do tent evangelism. He saw a great need to train Hispanic believers and new converts because there was very little Bible training available for them.
