Conference Description
  • This conference will help you understand the

4
Introduction
  • Opportunities for evangelism and church planting
    in North America is in the area of Hispanic
    ministries.
  • Southern Baptist witness to Hispanics dates to
    the latter 19th Century.

5
Introduction
  • We find more than 2,900 Hispanic Southern Baptist
    congregations with 150,000 members.
  • This is but a beginning. Thousands of new
    Hispanic churches are needed today.

6
Introduction
  • The explosive growth of the Hispanic community
    poses an enormous challenge.
  • Hispanics are now more receptive to the gospel
    than they have ever been in the history of this
    country.

7
Introduction
  • It is imperative to grasp the understanding of
    the diversity of the Hispanic Community
  • its spirituality,
  • religiosity, and
  • cultural distinctive

8
Introduction
  • The church needs to answer questions such as
  • Who is Hispanic?
  • What are Hispanics like collectively?
  • How diverse is this population?
  • How can the church, association and state
    conventions develop the strategies that will
    reach Hispanics?

9
So Whats in a Label?
  • Who Is Hispanic?
  • Websters Tenth New Colligate Dictionary traces
    the origin of the word Hispanic to Spains
    Hispania Iberian peninsula and defines as
    Hispanic any person of Latin American descent
    living in the United States, especially one of
    Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin.

10
So Whats in a Label?
  • In 1990, the Census Bureau used a more
    comprehensive definition. The Bureau included as
    Hispanic persons in the categories Spanish,
    Spaniard, Mexican American, Chicano, Puerto
    Rican, Cuban, and other.

11
So Whats in a Label?
  • Latino or Hispanic?
  • Many times these two terms are used
    interchangeably.
  • Today, Latino tends to be preferred by Hispanic
    consumers in some areas.
  • Most of the time when we refer to a particular
    Hispanic group, the name of the country of origin
    is used.

12
So Whats in a Label?
  • Latino or Hispanic?
  • The majority of time, when the term Latino is
    used, it is used to identify the peoples of Latin
    American, regardless of race.
  • Presently there is no consensus with the Hispanic
    community as to how to refer to its members
    collectively.
  • The term Hispanic is neither offensive nor
    preferable.

13
So Whats in a Label?
  • Latino or Hispanic?
  • Foreign-born persons overwhelmingly identified
    themselves with their country of origin.
  • The pattern of identification among the U.S.
    native-born seemed to have a stronger preference
    or Pan-ethnic labels, such as Latino or Hispanic.

VISION1 Peter 29-10
45
  • Impacting the Missional Mindset
  • of One Generation.
  • Hispanics the Acts 18 People Group
  • for Our Generation.
  • Every Hispanic a multiplying disciple
  • of Jesus Christ
  • impacting the Spiritual health of
  • the United States and the world.

46
  • The initial goal is
  • 7,000 Hispanic congregations with 1,000,000
  • Hispanic Southern Baptist
  • by the year 2020.

47
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Its clear that Hispanics with both their current
    population and their projected population have an
    increasingly significant influence on the
    cultural and spiritual health of the United
    States. Its extremely important, therefore,
    that Southern Baptists prayerfully join in Gods
    plan for starting new churches with the gospel of
    Jesus Christ among Hispanics.

48
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Last year Southern Baptists started more than 300
    Hispanic churches. Southern Baptist Hispanic
    churches now number approximately 3,000. The
    membership for these churches is nearly 150,000.
    Unfortunately, these totals amount to less than
    1/2 percent of the 44 million Hispanics living in
    the US.

49
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • If Southern Baptists are going to have greater
    eternal impact on Hispanics, they must put a face
    on lostness among Hispanics.
  • Matthew 936 records that when Jesus saw the
    multitudes of people, He was moved by compassion
    for them. He saw that they were weary and
    scattered like sheep without a shepherd. What
    enabled Jesus to see the multitudes? He was with
    the people, walking among them day by day.

50
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Likewise, Southern Baptists must get out among
    the Hispanics of their communities and see them,
    assess their needs and allow the Holy Spirit to
    move them with compassion for the sake of
    Hispanics who have yet to come to Christ.

51
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • The North American Mission Board is working with
    state conventions, associations, churches and
    church planters to start many new Hispanic
    churches in 2006. You can be involved, too, right
    where you live, if Hispanics live in your
    community. Consider doing the following

52
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Find out which Hispanics are living in your
    community
  • Begin praying for the Hispanics listed in your
    community.
  • Invite your pastor to pray with you about
    reaching the Hispanics in your community.
  • Inquire about any existing church planting or
    ministry opportunities among Hispanics. Call your
    Associational Director of Missions, State
    Director of Missions, State Language Director or
    the Hispanic National Missionary of NAMBs Church
    Planting Group.

53
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Consider participating in an existing ministry
    with Hispanics.
  • If no ministry exists, begin developing
    relationships with Hispanics to whom God leads
    you.
  • Follow Christs model of discipleship.
  • Pray constantly for them.

54
The OpportunityTo Make An Impact
  • Never doubt that God can use you as an individual
    or in partnership with others to make disciples
    of the Hispanic peoples living in your community.
    Jesus commanded us to make disciples of all
    people groups in Matthew 2819, and He will make
    it happen if we obey Him.

One More Note
60
The Lostness
  • Canada has an estimated population of 31 million
    people
  • It is estimated that only 6 know Christ
  • The lostness in Canada is about 29 million
  • The United States and its territories have an
    estimated population of 44 million Hispanics
  • The estimated lostness of Hispanics in the US is
    about 95 which is a lostness of more than 41
    million Hispanics in the United States

61
Implication
  • The lostness of Hispanics in the US is greater
    that the entire lostness of people in Canada
  • The lostness of Hispanics will continue to be
    greater given the future population growth of
    Hispanics
  • For ministry.
