Hispanic Ministry Transition – FAQ’s and Facts  

Why change?

  • To be effective in our mission to reach people of all nations for Christ and walk with them to maturity (including the 26% Hispanic population – 41% in the public schools - in our immediate area).    
  • The large Hispanic population is very diverse.  We must be intentional to 1) reach first, second and third generation Hispanics, 2) be inclusive of all national origins, and 3) relate to all socio-economic levels and backgrounds.   

What will change?  

  • A separate Hispanic mission congregation no longer exists.  We are “One Church with Many Cultures” with one mission, one vision, one staff, one budget, one ministry team structure, etc.     
  • We will offer two worship options for Hispanic people:

    1) The English worship service.  As normal, the service will be in English.  Yet we can be more accommodating and “Hispanic friendly” with bi-lingual handouts, both English and Spanish on the screen and make translation devices available.     
    2)  “Northwest en Español” a new Spanish language worship service of Northwest.  It will meet in the Mezzanine at the same time with the same theme as the English service.  Adult life groups and growth groups will also be offered in Spanish.

    

  • Hispanic children and youth will integrate with our existing English children/youth ministries.  
  • A new core staff position of Associate Pastor-Hispanic Ministries will be created to provide bi-lingual leadership under the leadership of our Lead Pastor Matthew Nance.   

How will it be supported financially?

  • Tithes and offerings of members in both English and Spanish worship services.  Initial funding will be provided through designated mission funds.    

When will this start?  

  • Sunday, August 2 - Joint English/Spanish worship service in the auditorium.  The candidate coming in view of a call for the Associate Pastor-Hispanic Ministries position will be preaching.  The church will vote to approve and affirm his calling to serve on our staff.
  • Sundays, August 9-Sept. 6 at 10:50 AM in the Mezzanine – A Bible study in Spanish will be offered in the Mezzanine on the vision, mission and values of “One Church with Many Cultures” and “Northwest en Español”
  • Sunday, September 13 – Target date to launch the new “Northwest en Español” worship service.
