Are demographics deemed necessary? A study of a community’s demographics can be a valuable tool in the process of beginning a Spanish ministry in a local church. With just a few dedicated days of effort one can determine vast information about the surrounding Hispanic community which can prove to be vital for several reasons: First, the demographics will decide what method of Spanish outreach will work best in a specific community. Also, the information gained will play a major roll in “selling” the new Spanish ministry to the congregation. Finally, the Latino contacts made in the process of the study will prove to be vital when implementing the ministry.
