Hispanic Latino Ministry

Ministries of Faith in Action

Hispanic Latino Ministry serves the purpose of supporting the development, implementation, and assessment of a plan of action to develop fruitful Hispanic Latino disciples in our communities. Our main goals include strengthening existing ministries, starting new congregations and ministries, and identifying, equipping, and deploying local pastors, lay missioners, lay certified ministers, and other individuals who can serve this mission and ministry. All part of our mission to strengthen God’s lesson of grace and equality, by giving Hispanic Latino ministries the tools they need to be spiritual leaders in the community.
