Historic Gathering of Christian Hispanic Leaders Meets in Charlotte


The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Samaritan’s Purse hosted the first ever Hispanic Leadership Encounter, bringing Christian Hispanic leaders together.
More than 20 evangelical leaders attended the meeting—including presidents of evangelical Hispanic church alliances and evangelistic associations. There were also leaders of various denominations, and directors of publishing houses and high-impact Christian ministries among the Hispanic community that took part in the event.
Those in attendance had the opportunity to speak about what they are doing in their own ministries and discuss the needs and challenges they are facing. Attendees also learned more about the Hispanic Initiatives Ministry at BGEA as the ministry looks to add bilingual chaplains for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team and Internet Evangelism volunteers.
