The Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program is an intense two-week introduction to Hispanic Ministry. The program is an orientation to the culture, history, and faith expressions of Mexican Americans. The course’s specific focus on the Mexican American experience is not exclusive; rather, it provides a comprehensive framework that can be used as a pattern for understanding other cultures. The Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program deepens appreciation of the multicultural diversity in society and guides both Hispanics and non-Hispanics through a process of understanding the complexities of ministry in Hispanic communities today.
This course is especially recommended for anyone working or desiring to work in Hispanic settings in the United States.
The adult-learning model of the Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program includes seminars, time for reflection group discussions, lectures, and field trips in San Antonio and to the Texas-Mexico border region.
