Much of Jesus’s ministry was bringing healing to those that needed it, feeding the hungry, setting those captives to Satan free and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God to everyone. He often was moved with compassion when he looked at their condition, desperate and in need of a shepherd to care and […]
As a bi-literate Hispanic (a 1.5 Hispanic) living in two worlds, both the Hispanic and the American, I find if fascinating what is happening in the United States in regards to demographics. Recent demographics reveal some important facts in the Hispanic culture. These have implications when it comes how we approach and minister to them […]
Being a Hispanic American, and having been part of two cultures and languages most of my life, I have learned a few things that can help us in relating to other cultures. These are simple things to keep in mind and practice to become intentional learners of other people’s cultures. 1. Be proactive in learning […]

It is not a how to book, but more of an understanding of the Hispanics distinctives that makes it difficult to to do ministry. Much […]
Another cultural characteristic of Hispanic culture is food. There is no question that Hispanics love food. The saying, “Barriga llena corazón contento” (stomach full, happy heart) has the idea that when you have eaten well, you feel happy and satisfied. It reflects the Hispanic culture’s attitude that food has a special place in daily living […]
Another characteristic of Hispanic culture, one which is often misunderstood is “pasión” or passion. This is not limited to what we associate with romance (After all the Spanish language is part of the Romance languages) but more in general and how they embrace life. This “pasión” or passion can be seen in many ways. For […]
One very important aspect of Hispanic culture is “personalismo” or the idea of being personal. This is an attribute that goes against being impersonal or individualistic which is prevalent in our American culture. “Personalismo” is seen in every aspect of Hispanic culture. It is evident in the family which extends itself to more than just […]
Hispanic culture follows traditional roles (“roles” is spelled the same in Spanish but the “e” [and s] is pronounced with the equivalent of the short sound in English). Normally, the father is the bread winner outside of the home. He works really hard to provide for his family. Usually, this involves long days and coming home […]
In Hispanic culture the Spanish language is considered just as important as all other values (This is true of other cultures as well) in establishing their identity. Not speaking Spanish, which usually happens with grandkids incurs shaming them with the title of “Gringo” (a slang term for White American) and not fully embracing your own cultural […]
In Hispanic culture family is the most basic and important unit. Nothing is more important than family. Individualism is discouraged over the benefit of the whole family. It may not be a perfect family, but Hispanics have a saying, “Familia es familia.” This means that though the family experiences difficulties and problems, family is always […]
