Caminando Juntos is a Global Impact and Urban Strategies partnership initiative to improve the holistic wellbeing and interconnectivity among diverse Latino(a) Pastors in the USA. We accomplish this through Latino(a) pastor cohorts centered on 10 holistic wellbeing learning and practice sessions and a financed virtual renewal retreat. These pastor cohorts also experience grants for personal counseling and spiritual direction, as well as general wellbeing implementation. These opportunities are provided in bilingual, Spanish and English settings with materials developed by subject matter experts from or with extensive experience in Latino(a) contexts.
The Caminando Juntos initiative also offers a virtual platform with contextualized, holistic wellbeing materials and supporting resources for Latino(a) pastors. During 2022, the program also plans to offer development, training and certification of pastoral holistic wellbeing mentors, and consultancy services to improve on organizational practices to increase the holistic wellbeing of Latino(a) pastors within their denominational context(s).
