Welcome! This collection of resources, reachable by the shortcut https://leadnet.org/hispanic, focuses on events, research and writings about churches that minister to a predominantly Hispanic/Latino community. Each item contains ways you can give feedback, join the discussion, and/or network with others. While we don’t offer the resource kit anymore, we do offer you access to the creator of the resource: Dr. Warren Bird. You can chat with him about his research on predominantly Anglo churches reaching Hispanics in their communities by joining our Implementation Lab at lab.leadnet.org

U.S. Census Bureau: “More than half of the growth in the total population of the United Statesbetween 2000 and 2010 was due to the increase in the Hispanic population.” — Those words come from a very helpful report by the U.S. Census Bureau. It includes this map that shows counties of greatest growth for the U.S. Hispanic/Latino population. Among other uses, this report and especially this map (from page 12 of the Census report), is an excellent tool for church planting, church extension, and evangelism. Another Census resource is named “Quickfacts”: click here to lean the percentage of Hispanics in your county or any town over 5,000 in population.
