What makes UMC Spanglish unique?
Spanglish is an ongoing new bilingual/bicultural youth and young adults’ ministry (ages 14-26) that has served effectively for the past four years by using an intentional mentorship model through the Spanglish Design Team. The Team provides leadership and spiritual growth opportunities for our young people to receive hands-on training, and monthly meetings as we prayerfully put together the Spanglish event, and other ongoing discipleship and evangelical events throughout the connection targeting 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Hispanic/Latino young people from all over our UMC connection.
What is UMC Spanglish’s Vision?
Under the leadership of a team that involves faithful servants of God that are laity, clergy, young people, and key UMC Staff. The God vision is to become a model that can be duplicated and easily modified throughout the UMC connection with the purpose of creating mature disciples of Christ that will share Jesus with the world!
What is UMC Spanglish’s connection to the National Plan for Hispanic/Latino Ministry (NPHLM)?
Some of our Spanglish leaders currently serve on the national consultative team and attended the 3rd national consultation on Hispanic/Latino Ministry this past March 2015 held at Drew University in Durham, NC. We believe that God has been preparing us to pave the way as a response to the emerging generations of Hispanic/Latino youth.
We celebrate our NPHLM’s “collaborative approach to our work [towards] building God’s Kingdom”. Our top 7 seven recommendations that we will focus on are:
