Care for ministry
leaders is designed to offer support and rest. Ministry leaders
are supported by means of pastoral care, mentoring and
accountability. EM provides opportunities for ministry leaders
to come away from the demands of their ministry, to come to a
quiet place, a place that promotes a fresh “encuentro”
(encounter) with God and with one’s self, so that having been
spiritually transformed one can re-enter ministry and relate
more effectively to ones’ family, church, and community.
area of EM’s program aims to create an environment where
participants together learn from and teach each other. EM will
challenge ministry leaders to reflect on current issues related
to doing ministry with Hispanics, in order to become
transformational leaders. The first set of areas to be
considered is: spiritual and relational vitality, balance in
life and ministry, development of a vision for life and
ministry, and leadership from a Hispanic perspective.
Through EM, ministry
leaders are exposed to resources and networks that enable them
to become more effective in their own current contexts. Together
we will create resources out of our own sharing of experiences,
to bless other ministry leaders in need of pastoral care and
skills development. Together we will build a network of new and
existing resources and make it available to others.
The Harvest is Great ...
Hispanic population in the U.S. is a greater opportunity
for the Church, but it is also a greater demand for its
leaders. And who will pastor the multitudes of
Hispanics? One single church can’t do it alone; nor can
one pastor, planter or ministerial leader. God has
called EM to train, care for, and resource many
planters, pastors, and leaders working with Hispanic
churches and communities, so that more leaders are
effective in their local ministries, and more persons
are reached for Christ.
