Publisher's Description

Written in Spanish for ministry in Protestant Latino churches.

The growth and religious commitment of the Latino community in the U.S. presents a unique set of challenges for pastors in that community. Latino Protestant Churches—Ministry Challenges in the 21st Century identifies and analyzes the contemporary challenges facing Latino Protestant churches in the United States and some of the issues they are likely to face in the future. Latino pastors, and others working in the community, need to understand and grapple with these challenges. As the Latino community continues to grow and diversify, effective church leaders in Latino Protestant churches will retool their ministries to address these changes.
