Puritan Board Freshman
I have read some of the older threads here on outreach to Hispanics. I feel a need to comment further on this topic. I am of the opinion that the Hispanic community is white for the harvest right now due to the deterioration of the traditional sources of spirituality in these communities. Without naming names, these churches have deteriorated into an effiminized notion of diviine and household authority that leaves the representative Hispanic cold. I know some Hispanics, and the reformed concept of a masculine and authoritative God who disciplines his children to produce appropriate behavior and expects the man of the house to be the leader and disciplinarian in his sphere of influence resonates very strongly with his concept of deity and family. Is this board making any effort to reach the Hispanic community? Are there any mission or outreach efforts that we support or coordinate with?
