Caucus Nacional Presbiteriano Hispano

The Hispanic American community is represented by a variety of different cultures and nationalities and represents a mixed culture composed of people from South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain and other places. Hispanics are the largest racial ethnic group in the United States and the third largest racial ethnic group in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

They are represented by 330 congregations and missions in the United States, with more than 40,000 members. Ten percent of our pastors are women and 10 percent are commissioned lay pastors. Hispanics are involved in evangelism, church growth, worship renovation and also provide a new vision for the mission in this century. We are equal partners in ministry, work and mission within the denomination. As pilgrims in a foreign land we have a divine mission to accomplish. We identify and affirm the Great Ends of the Church. read more
