Strengthening Hispanic Ministry Across Denominations: A Call To Action



Currently numbering 38 million individuals, U.S. Latinos are the nation’s largest and fastest-growing minority group. Both as established residents and new immigrants, Latinos are making major contributions to the country’s economy and society. Hispanic membership is increasing in Christian congregations throughout the United States, posing major opportunities and challenges for the churches that serve them. Overall, the Hispanic community remains disproportionately affected by poverty, low education levels, poor health, and discrimination. Churches that seek to minister to community members in need often do so with limited financial resources and inadequate leadership.
