“One size fits all’ approaches to Hispanic ministry must be abandoned in favor of approaches that take seriously the socioeconomic and cultural differences that exist among Latinos in the United States.”
— Daniel Rodriguez, A Future for the Latino Church

Our vision

We have a vision to create a movement of PCA churches among Hispanics.

Why?

Map Standard.png

The demographic composition of our North American population is rapidly changing!   For several decades, people from Hispanic countries have flooded into our land of opportunity.  As a result, the United States has the second largest Hispanic population of any nation in the world and Hispanics are now the largest minority in the United States. We see the challenges of our changing nation as an unprecedented opportunity – orchestrated by God Himself – to continue our PCA commitment to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

How?

We will accomplish our vision by 1) identifying godly Hispanic men with leadership potential and preparing them for vibrant ministry within the PCA; 2) assisting churches and presbyteries in their efforts to plant new churches; and 3) equipping existing churches for thriving ministry among this people group.

What is most important to us?

Dependence – The church is the bride of Christ. He loves the church more than we can imagine and therefore He will provide, preserve, protect and build his church. We express our dependence on Christ through faith and prayer.

Servant leadership - The Lord Jesus did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant. The joy of the immense sacrifice our Savior on our behalf makes us ready, and willing, to serve others with all our resources.

Freedom – Jesus Christ lived the life we should have lived and died the death we should have died. The gospel humbles us because we are aware that that we are more sinful and flawed than we had ever dared imagine, yet it deeply affirms us because we are aware that we are more loved and accepted than we had ever dared hope. The effect of the gospel in our lives and ministry is that we are free to laugh and cry, free to live lives of integrity and courage, free to take risks, free to fail, and free to be creative because we have nothing to prove.

Cooperation - Hispanic ministry in the United States is very complex. There is not one correct ministry model or approach because each context is vastly different. We are conscious of our need for the gifts and talents of others in the body of Christ and intentionally seek to work those who share our faith commitments.
