Where are the Christian Hispanic Leaders?

In 2012, I completed a racial reconciliation blog series where I featured interviews of neglected voices of the church from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. I was a little dismayed during that time because I was not aware of prominent Hispanic leaders to feature.

Since then, I have been asking the question, “Who are the Hispanic leaders within the evangelical community?” I have found a few like Samuel Rodriguez and Gabriel Salguero who are speaking into injustices concerning the immigration system. Noel Castellanos is known for his work with the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA).

Recently, I was so excited to see this list by Corrie Mitchell, editor of OnFaith, listing 15 Hispanic Faith Leaders You Should Know and why. She also lets the reader know what ministry organizations these leaders are connected to, where they are located, and how we can find them on the internet. The list only includes one woman, so I’m definitely interested in knowing the names and contributions of other women leaders of Hispanic descent.

If you are aware of Hispanic Christian leaders serving in various capacities, please include their name, represented organization, and how we can find them on the internet in the comment section.

  1. Check out Elsa Tamez. In seminary we read her book, “The Scandalous Message of James.” She is not a north American, but is a Methodist theologian and has written a lot about liberation theology. I really appreciated her perspective.
