A Leadership Network One-Day Experience for Latino Christians
If you are a Hispanic/Latino senior pastor leading a church of 1,000 or more in attendance, and you minister to a predominantly English-speaking congregation, you are warmly invited to a day of networking and sharing experiences with peers.
God is raising a new generation of Hispanic/Latino pastors, many younger, and many exploring new ways of reaching the next generation for Christ. (For a large collection of stats, trends, profiles of churches, relevant books, see www.leadnet.org/hispanic.) If you’d like to be part of that conversation, please let us know that you would be interested in this Leadership Network sponsored roundtable experience.
Leadership Network will co-host this exciting event in on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 in Chicago at New Life Covenant Church, where Pastor Wilfredo “Pastor Choco” de Jesus will be our host location. This national event will be a unique gathering designed specifically to be a fast paced one-day experience of Leadership Network’s “Peer Protocol Process” that includes:
If you’d like to know who else is coming, we’re happy to do that. They start with our host pastor Wilfredo “Choco” de Jesus, who pastors the largest-attendance church in the entire Assembly of God, will walk us through their model of outreach and disciplemaking, their Chicago Dream Center and some of their most effective ministries for reaching second and third generation Latinos and Hispanics. Leaders of large, growing churches from New York to Florida to Los Angeles will be there, and we’d love you to join us as well.
The discussion agenda, crafted in a unique approach by the participants themselves, will cover the felt needs of large-church senior pastors such as how to develop a new generation of leaders, how to build a stronger staff team, how to deal with the tough financial realities of a large, growing church.
Here are the overall goals:
1. To create a relational and idea-rich peer gathering for senior leaders of large multi-lingual, multi-generational churches that serve Hispanic/Latino communities, especially second generation and beyond.
2. To explore new models to more effectively reach U.S.-born, English-dominant Hispanics/Latinos.
3. To share best practices in evangelism, leadership development, discipleship, and growth.
4. To develop new friendships and to explore whether there’s a next step for a group like this.
