Hispanic/Latino Ministry

Hispanic/Latino Ministry

The annual conference is composed of 265 congregations in six districts in Colorado, Utah, and two-thirds of Wyoming. Hispanic/Latino ministries are growing and vital in some areas, but are not finding traction in others. Cesar’s appointment in 2015 represents an attempt to establish a coordinated approach to Hispanic/Latino work across the conference, which includes 1.5 million Hispanic/Latino people, or 17.5 percent of the population.

Committee for Hispanic/Latino Ministries

The RMC Committee on Hispanic/Latino Ministries strives to embrace the message of the Gospel alongside our culturally diverse communities located throughout Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The committee works to strengthen our Hispanic and Latino congregations by offering educational resources, church planting support, and leadership development trainings.
