- Is there a growing Latine community in your area?
- How is your church equipping itself to enhance its cross-cultural ministry among Latine people?
You are invited to join a group of learners and practitioners wanting to enhance their cultural and ministry competency to help start or strengthen Latine and Bilingual worshipping com- munities. This 9-hour workshop will explore basic principles, various ministry models and best practices in the development of ministry among the diversity of Latine audiences: new immigrants, established people, and new emerging generations.
Experienced practitioners will assist participants to identify key moments or benchmarks in the journey from being a new start to becoming an organized congregation in the ELCA. In addition, participants will also learn about helpful strategies and dynamics at play in the creation and sustainability of “bilingual churches”, also called a “One Church – Two Expressions” model.
This initiative is part of an ELCA churchwide effort to “activate ourselves so that more people may know the way of Jesus and experience community, justice and love”
Cost: Individual $250 or Congregation $600.
