Project Information

Strengthening of the existing Hispanic/Latino ministries across the UMC connection and, more importantly, supporting the development of new and innovative places of worship that are facing the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Describe the primary goal of the project

The purpose of this fund for Hispanic ministry is to support local congregations and community-based organizations that are responding to the spiritual and social needs of the Hispanic/Latino population in the U.S. Grants from this fund prioritize intentional leadership development within evolving generations. Grants will support new and traditional forms of ministries as well as community-based programs that address the socio-economic conditions of Hispanics/Latinos.

The fund will support annual conference strategies that include:

  • Leadership training for clergy and laity as well as youth and young adults
  • The renewal and invigoration of existing ministries
  • Programs to address poverty through holistic and comprehensive initiatives
  • The promotion of health and wellbeing (for example, small grants to Hispanic/Latino congregations that provide community health programs)

Those who seek funding should submit proposals with a clear description of goals and objectives. An end of project evaluation is required.
