National Plan for Hispanic/Latino Ministries

www.hispaniclatinoministry.org

The faces of Hispanic and Latino people are varied and beautiful.

The vision of the National Plan is that Hispanic and Latino people will experience new and abundant life as they experience God through Jesus Christ and that The United Methodist Church, by the very sharing of this message through word and deed, will be energized in new and exciting ways (the winds of Pentecost at work).

New Clergy, Church and Faith Community Data Web Application

The National Office of the National Plan for Hispanic/Latino Ministry is elated to announce the launching of our new Clergy, Church and Faith Community Data web application. This interface will greatly facilitate the work of Hispanic/Latino Ministry by assisting us to provide a comprehensive searchable web based database of Hispanic/Latino Churches & Faith Communities, Hispanic/Latino Pastors, and Lay Missionary/Pastor Mentors. Data provided by the NPH/LM National Office, General Agencies, and end users (e.g. Local Churches, Pastors, etc.) will be compiled to provide the most accurate statistical data and contact information related to Hispanic/Latino Ministry in the United States. Users will be prompted to register and create a login and password which will allow them to input information and search our databases. Updates and additions will then be reviewed by the NPH/LM office and, upon approval, immediately be made available to all users. Download the excerpt of the overview of this new feature below:
