"ASSURING THE WELLNESS OF THE PASTORAL HOME"
Healthy Pastors Lead Healthy Churches and Healthy Churches Change the World
Leading a church is one of the most important jobs in our communities and one of the most challenging, especially after the pandemic. Pastors are not only concerned with the well-being of their church but also are the spiritual, physical, and emotional leaders in their communities.
NAHPA is focusing on supporting and developing Hispanic pastors and churches across the nation. Hispanic pastors and churches are facing challenges that are sometimes greater than other faith communities such as culture, language, access to opportunities, access to capital, and lack of theological education just to name a few. These challenges are hindering the healthy growth of Hispanic pastors, their families, and their churches, and as a result the effectiveness of the gospel in transforming communities and the nation.
NAHPA Pastoral Care Initiative serves pastors in 5 areas of need: physical, emotional, spiritual, personal life, and professional development.
