A Future for the Latino Church: Models for Multilingual, Multigenerational Hispanic Congregations
by Daniel A. Rodriguez

Many assume that Hispanic ministry in North America still necessarily focuses on Spanish- language congregations. But over 60 percent of all American Latinos were born in the United States and are now English dominant.

Daniel Rodriguez argues that effective Latino ministry and church planting are now centered in second-generation, English-dominant leadership and congregations. Based on his observation of dozens of cutting-edge Latino churches across the country, Rodriguez reports on how innovative congregations are ministering creatively to the next generations of Latinos. In-depth case studies reveal how gifted leaders are reaching beyond their own demographics to have lasting impact on their wider communities.

The future of the Latino church is multilingual, multigenerational and multiethnic. Those who "live in the hyphen" between Latino and American can become all things to all Latinos, sharing the gospel in ways that language is no barrier.
