Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF), a national nonprofit faith-based organization, is launching its Hispanic Leadership Network: A Focus on Ministry for Thriving Churches program. The effort seeks to develop a mentoring and leadership development network to support young, midcareer and experienced Latino/a pastors serving high need rural and urban congregations across the United States. The program will engage pastors who have been closely involved in HAF initiatives for nearly eight years and will gradually incorporate new faith leader participants in 12 geographic regions, so they become more fully connected and supported by their peers. Program activities include: a five-day in-person orientation; participation in regular small group meetings with peers and mentors; and professional leadership development webinars. In addition, pastors will be encouraged to hold one community event in their churches or neighborhoods. To sustain this effort, HAF will seek to raise funds from a variety of sources while developing a low-cost model to maintain the peer network.
