Thank you for your interest in the Latinx Faith Collective (LFC).
What is the group about?
The Latinx Faith Collective (LFC) is affiliated with the Latino Leadership Circle (LLC) in NYC which is a group of emerging and established ministers and faith-based leaders dedicated to theological reflection, mutual support, and social justice. Among the deep convictions of the LFC and LLC is that we have a voice representing Latinas and Latinos in the body of Christ. We feel called to find a nexus of understanding within our bi-cultural and spiritual identity.
When will it meet?
Once a month but we do expect in some months to gather twice in order to executive some initiatives like special seminars, retreats, etc.
What are some plans for LFC?
Because we deeply feel that Latinx voices must be discovered, heard, celebrated and honored, we plan to do the following:
- GATHER. We will meet once a month at minimum for mutual encouragement, to share and support each others initiatives, to process, reflect and serve a cause that is important to the members of the collective. We hope that this would become a tribe of seasoned, emerging, people on the fringes and even those who have retired but want to pour back into a new rising group of Latinx change agents and movement makers.
- WRITE. We plan on mobilizing some of the best and brightest Latinx scholars and practitioners to get their thoughts and experiences on paper and into the hands of the emerging generation.
- EDUCATE. We will host seminars and retreats with some of the most influential leaders in the U.S. to educate the Latinx members on important issues of the day.
- MOTIVATE. We hope that through the interaction of our gatherings and exposure to the leaders and discussion we bring to light that members of the collective will be motivated to go back to school, to take that leap of faith, etc.
- CELEBRATE. We plan to celebrate EVERY member who through the efforts of LFC graduated with a Bachelor's or higher, who launched a new church plant, published a book, and even the birthdays because one more year alive, means one more year of legacy building and damaging of the devil's kingdom setting captives free.
Everything else we will figure out along the way.
