Inside the March/April Issue
How will the church respond to this unprecedented opportunity? While questions of immigration reform for 11 million undocumented Hispanics swirl around D.C., appearing and reappearing in the nation’s news cycles, a different set of numbers tells another aspect of the story: America’s Hispanic church is rising, and evangelicals are seeing the gains.
The narrative that emerges paints the picture of Hispanic churches shaped by a holistic faith—churches engaged in the community’s concerns—and animated by passionate worship and personal faith.
Talk to today’s Hispanic leaders in the faith community and they will tell you, the numbers only begin to hint at the size of the opportunity. How we respond, some leaders say, will help shape the future of America’s church.
Don’t miss this critically important issue of Outreach magazine, which features an interview with Samuel Rodriguez, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and pastor of New Season Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, Calif.
Also in this issue: our 11th annual celebration of the best outreach resources—apologetics, cross-cultural ministry, leadership, church health and more.
