The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, (NHCLC) also known as the Hispanic Evangelical Association, the nation’s largest Christian Hispanic organization, has announced that they will emphasize evangelism and education through high impact efforts, in addition to their seven primary directives.
The NHCLC states that, although 2012 is a Presidential year, their priority is a non-partisan agenda, an agenda of the Lamb and the Cross—both horizontal and vertical. Headline news continues to talk about the GOP race and the November election but the NHCLC will focus on bringing souls to Christ through the Hispanic Church, particularly through an emphasis on church planting across the U.S. and Puerto Rico and ultimately showing the love and mercy of Christ to Americans in need of hope.
Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the NHCLC, is often quoted about the vertical and horizontal work of the NHCLC and he has announced that the NHCLC’s 2012 vertical focus will be actuating a strong course of evangelism and church planting through the Hispanic Church.
The NHCLC’s primary horizontal focus for 2012 will be education with a goal of 25% Hispanic enrollment in Secondary education by end of this year. The NHCLC partners with Christian universities and colleges through their education directive and their Hispanic Education Alliance.
The Alliance is comprised of nine Christian Universities and colleges working in conjunction with an outstanding assembly of pastors, church leaders, academic administrators, and educators who are united in making great strides toward impacting the drop-out statistics and increasing the educational pursuits of the Hispanic community for the betterment of the nation—believing that Christian schools and organizations can be the catalyst for a national Hispanic movement.
