Hispanic Ministry

Working with the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina to reach the Hispanic community with the goal of planting and growing biblical Anglican congregations locally and throughout the Americas. We work in partnership with more than 60 Anglican Churches in Latin America who are actively doing the same. It is also our goal to assist local congregations in partnering with Latin leaders and churches in the Global South.

Over the last year, La Iglesia de San Juan (the Hispanic ministry of the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina) has been in transition. This summer the church changed direction in its witness to the Hispanic people of Sea Islands. Instead of the traditional “open our doors and they will come” model, worship and pastoral care are now taken to the people where they live. Each Sunday evening the “Church on the Move” can be found at one of the many work camps on Johns Island. The ministry is a mission church of the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina. The ministry is not self-supporting and it does pay two part-time pastors.

Ministry to the Hidden, Marginalized…Undocumented

Undocumented Migrants: They are here. They are living next to us, and very few of them have anyone outside of their culture saying, “Jesus loves you and so do I. How can I pray for you? How can I help you? Please come to church with me.” Illegally here or not, they are here, and they are as much in need of Jesus’ grace and transformational power as you or me. Church leadership is sometimes daunting. A term on a ...
