Anyra Cano, coordinator

Originally from El Paso, Anyra earned her undergraduate degree in biblical theological studies from Baptist University of the Américas and her master’s degree in global leadership from Dallas Baptist University. She has experience working with Baptists through positions with Buckner International, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, CBF of Texas and Baptist University of the Américas. While pastoring with her husband in Fort Worth, Anyra felt God’s calling to serve full-time in ministry. Along the way God has opened the doors for her to do other types of ministry that she is passionate about. In addition to her role as TXBWIM coordinator, Anyra serves as youth minister at Iglesia Bautista Victoria en Cristo in Fort Worth and as academic coordinator for the Christian Latina Leadership Institute.
