Introduction7 l.jpg

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?


So what s in a label l.jpg

So What’s in a Label?

  • Who Is Hispanic?

    • Webster’s Tenth New Colligate Dictionary traces the origin of the word Hispanic to Spain’s 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.”


So what s in a label9 l.jpg

So What’s 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”.


So what s in a label10 l.jpg

So What’s 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.


So what s in a label11 l.jpg

So What’s 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.


So what s in a label12 l.jpg

So What’s 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.

    of One Generation.

    Hispanics the Acts 1:8 People Group

    for Our Generation.

    Every Hispanic a multiplying disciple

    of Jesus Christ

    impacting the Spiritual health of

    the United States and the world.”


    Slide45 l.jpg

    The initial goal is

    7,000 Hispanic congregations with 1,000,000

    Hispanic Southern Baptist

    by the year 2020.


    The opportunity to make an impact l.jpg

    The OpportunityTo Make An Impact

    • It’s 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. It’s extremely important, therefore, that Southern Baptists prayerfully join in Gods plan for starting new churches with the gospel of Jesus Christ among Hispanics.


    The opportunity to make an impact47 l.jpg

    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.


    The opportunity to make an impact48 l.jpg

    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 9:36 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.


    The opportunity to make an impact49 l.jpg

    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.


    The opportunity to make an impact50 l.jpg

    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:


    The opportunity to make an impact51 l.jpg

    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 NAMB’s Church Planting Group.


    The opportunity to make an impact52 l.jpg

    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 Christ’s model of discipleship.

    • Pray constantly for them.


    The opportunity to make an impact53 l.jpg

    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 28:19, and He will make it happen if we obey Him.

    The lostness l.jpg

    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


    Implication l.jpg

    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….
